GBS International B.V. is a trading house in Heerhugowaard engaged in the international trade in alcoholic beverages of all major brands in more than 50 countries. In order to realize further growth of our company, we are looking for a driven enthusiastic commercial colleague in the position of Spanish-speaking (Junior) Trader.
The position of (Junior) Trader focuses on conducting international trade. To achieve success in this dynamic business you are constantly chasing good deals. The world (and especially Spanish-speaking countries) is your playing field. You buy large batches of alcoholic beverages and know how to sell them elsewhere in the world with good profit margins, taking into account all the additional logistical and financial aspects.
Your daily work:
Acquisition of new international customers and suppliers (building own network).
Analyzing incoming quotations and sending quotations to (potential) customers.
Negotiating with customers and suppliers.
Initiating and successfully completing purchase and sales deals.
Making cost price and profit calculations (on transaction basis).

What do we offer you?
A nice international full-time job in which, after a short training period, you do business with people from many different cultures and you can determine your own success through short B2B sales processes where you see quick results (average deal size €75K). A pleasant and informal working environment with a flat organizational structure (you report directly to the cooperating owners). We currently consist of a small team that likes to get things done. This gives you the space to think along to further expand our company into a major player in the market, allowing you to develop into a professional international Trader. Good salary in consultation based on education level and experience, supplemented with a very good 'pay for performance' bonus system, year-end bonus, 25 vacation days and a pension scheme.
