Key Accountabilities

Have you ever thought of being part of a company that protects some of the world's iconic landmarks, such as the Brooklyn Bridge? Or a company that helps a Formula One car withstand 540˚C heat with just a 25-micron thick coating? Our vision at AkzoNobel has seen us constantly embrace new ideas and develop revolutionary products to keep us at the forefront of the paint & coatings industry. We supply sustainable and innovative paints and coatings that our customers, communities, and the environment are increasingly relying on.

Our diverse culture strongly connects us by creating a shared mindset characterized as ambitious, open-minded, proactive, informal, and collaborative.

Our team develops a supply chain network that serves millions of customers. Through our vast number of suppliers, manufacturing locations, and warehouses worldwide, we manage to keep all our customers satisfied! Are you keen on being a part of a young team that makes all these networks function as smoothly as possible from the beating heart of our sustainable supply chain organization?

The supply planning teams in our AMP department are a highly diverse mix of over 60 supply chain enthusiasts with over 20 different nationalities from across the globe.
