VACANCY BUSINESS DEVELOPER – RELATION/CHRISTMAS GIFTS

Are you commercial and do you want to help us make the oceans a little cleaner and our cool brand bigger?  Retulp is a sustainable brand that sells reusable drinks bottles and lunch products with the aim of eliminating disposable packaging. We deliver these products to sustainable shops and companies.

OUR GOAL

Our aim is to inspire people to turn off the plastic tap and turn on the drinking water tap again. In the Netherlands, we are already well on our way.  Every year, we want to avoid 20 million disposable plastic bottles and donate 20 million litres of drinking water to developing countries. We just want to reach even more companies and continue our mission outside the Netherlands. Do you have relevant work experience that can help us further?

THE FUNCTION

As a Business Developer, you are above all a Bottle Messenger, and with that you have what we do not (yet) have. With your relevant work experience and entrepreneurial skills, you will help us develop new markets and grow current ones. As the point of contact for our European Christmas gift clients and business gift companies, you will ensure that everyone is happy. You will help us to grow in Germany and look for opportunities in other countries and markets. You will think along about product development and put our new products marketing focused on the websites of our resellers and wholesalers and help them to increase the turnover rate. Finally, you will set up promotional campaigns and occasionally get involved in social media.
