We are now planning on expanding our business to an array of new markets, and on moving this international expansion out of our office in Copenhagen to Berlin. For this we are looking for a local manager, who can run the business from day to day and who will be responsible for making the new division grow.

·       You have experience with budgeting, and you are a super user of Excel.

·       You understand how to analyze incoming data from markets, and you can swiftly change direction accordingly.

·       You speak fluent English. Candidates with additional languages will be preferred.

·       Experience with IT-systems such as Navision, database management is a valued skill.

·       You don’t necessarily have years and years of management experience.

We value:

·       The right mindset.

·       Flexibility – lots of travel activity will be expected.

·       That you don’t take no for an answer.

·       That you can juggle between our internal easy going workstyle, running a serious business and communicating formally with external partners. 

·       That you understand an array of cultural codes and can navigate professionally herein.

We offer:

·       A job with much responsibility.

·       A “fast forward”-track in your career.

·       An everyday job where no two days are the same.
