Internship - Contract & Tender Management
About the Job
As Contract & Tender Management Intern, your mission will be to support the team with the proper execution of contracts and invoices within Danone’s division of Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition (AMN). This team, consisting of three colleagues, is part of the AMN Sales team, but you will also work closely together with finance, marketing and supply chain. This will give you a unique opportunity to see all corners. Your key role will be to bring order in chaos through your structured way of working on administrative tasks but also updating stakeholders about the status of all the invoices. For this, you will be given the degree of responsibility you deserve by having your own scope – but still have all the openness and freedom to ask questions to anyone in the team when necessary.
Your main responsibilities will be:
- Support the team in the planning and execution of customers’ year-end discounts (calculations, registration in relevant files, administration tasks and archiving);
- Perform checks of invoices sent by customers and ensure timely payments. This means keeping the overview of the status and communicating updates to relevant stakeholders (sales, financial administration, controlling colleagues), followed by proper archiving of the invoices;
- Support development of new guidelines regarding customer projects & activities
- Work closely with various internal stakeholders;
- Attend related meetings.
