    • Be responsible of Supplier KPIs preparation and communication internally and externally & of their improvement

    3. Projects - Next to the above, you will have the chance to help the team on ad hoc projects depending on the timing of your internship. Within this, you will support:

    • Support European Corrugated Tender: data preparation and analysis, internal alignments and negotiations with Suppliers
