Employee Sales Support

Full-time/Part-time (32-40 hours) – MBO – Dwarsweg 15, De Kwakel

Together with your colleagues, you will be there for our customers worldwide!

Wat ga je doen?

As an Employee Sales Support at HilverdaFlorist, you and your colleagues will ensure that all our sales orders are processed correctly from A to Z. In doing so, you are a reliable partner for our customers all over the world, but also for your colleagues.

Your working day is varied. You enter sales orders, confirm them to your customers and handle customer queries. You do this mostly by e-mail, but you also phone your customers.

To provide your customers with the right information about their order, you have close contacts with the planning department, but also with our sales staff and international agents. You also have a lot of contact with the transport department to ensure the orders are dispatched properly. In addition, you arrange pro forma invoices for advance payments and import permits where applicable.

You report to the Manager Sales Support & Logistics.

What we offer

Together with 5 colleagues (including the manager), you form the Sales Support department. A department that acts as a spider in the web for processing all our sales orders. Together, we serve all customers worldwide, but each colleague takes care of a specific country package.

At HilverdaFlorist, we want to lead the way in the ever-evolving floriculture sector and you can contribute to this with your commercial attitude. We are a family business where we are there for each other with a pleasant working atmosphere in a no-nonsense, open, honest and flat organisation.

In addition, you will receive good primary and secondary working conditions, such as;

  • An attractive salary, depending on your knowledge and experience
  • A position for 32 to 40 hours a week
  • Working conditions in accordance with the collective labour agreement for greenhouse horticulture
  • 25.5 days’ holiday on a full-time basis
  • A one-year contract, followed by an open-ended contract if you perform well
  • The possibility to follow training and courses
  • Participation in the Greenhouse Horticulture Pension Fund (BPL)
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses
  • The possibility to work partly flexible hours (in consultation)
