VACANCY (INTERNATIONAL) RETAIL SPECIALIST

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 Retail specialist, you have what we do not (yet) have. With your relevant work experience and entrepreneurial skills, you will help us develop new markets in the Netherlands and especially in Europe. As a point of contact for our customers (retail chains) and suppliers (logistics and marketing), you make sure that everyone is happy. Most of the time, you will have contact with our customers by phone or online and once or twice a month, you will spend a day visiting our regular customers and suppliers.  So you will mostly work from our office in Apeldoorn and occasionally from home. You will help us to continue to grow in Germany and you will look for opportunities in other countries and markets. You will contribute to product development and ensure that our new products are adopted by our customers. Finally, you help our customers with social media and promotional campaigns.
