“I usually have a plan of the tasks I want to accomplish during the week, on top of all previously agreed meetings. Since the job is very varied, challenging and hectic, I often end up doing something completely different than what I originally planned. For me no two days are alike and I get to work with many different people and stakeholders, from new and existing suppliers and customers to the sales and product managers in my team – and of course a huge number of other colleagues and partners. I also have so called extracurricular tasks being involved in digital projects – something that IMCD is very much investing in.

My colleagues are great, competent, funny and extremely knowledgeable. The freedom to grow and build your own path motivates me highly, at IMCD you get to develop in many different areas. If you want to learn about different industries and products, then IMCD is a great place to work.”
