KH Chemicals is growing! That’s why we have a vacancy for a full-time

In this position you will have full responsibility for maintaining and developing existing customers as well as acquiring new customers. You close the deals, work with Customer Service and Logistics to insure on-time delivery and drive the process to exceed your customer’s expectations.

- Proactively develop new customers, new products and new markets.
- Visiting your customers and prospects on a regular basis with the desire and ability to develop a strong relationship with them that will eventually generate new and increased business.
- Outperforming the competition!
In the early months you will work in our back office to learn about our logistical world. Depending on how you develop, we decide when the time is right for you to start in sales. We will do everything we can to give you the right foundations and it is up to you to make a success of it.
What do we require?

- Bachelor’s degree (Commerce, Economics or Logistics).
- Besides Dutch and a good command of the English language, you speak French and/or Arabic. You are open to the possibility of learning other languages.
