You & your job

You’re on your way to make an important contribution to the professionalisation of the Procurement and Vendor Management Team. With your expertise you will be responsible for developing a Sustainability operating model, that can be used to broaden its influence into the everyday workings of not just PVM, but also Rabobank.

You can make a difference by actively applying Sustainability methodologies, based on the latest market developments. You have the capabilities putting in place a value chain, across PVM, that delivers on Rabobank’s and PVM’s Sustainability position with its peers. Your role is to design and develop an operating model for Sustainability actions in Procurement that delivers on our local and global Sustainability goals.

Working closely together with your PVM colleagues and challenging them to contribute to the execution of your new developed model gives you the right energy. Inspiring them with your knowledge and expertise makes you enthusiastic! Becoming the best bank in Sustainable procurement is the challenge you are willing to take!
