Empowered to generate the greatest possible value

You and your team’s aim is to generate the greatest possible value of ROCKWOOL’s yearly spend on what our organization needs to operate. Making great efforts every day to have the right material – in time, in the right place, at the right cost – ensures that our business keep running smoothly. To accomplish this, we empower you to take responsibility, prioritize and lead yourself in your daily work. You have the possibility of pursuing a global career and being part of bringing our function to the next level of excellence.

Do you want to be a part of something truly new and innovative, where you participate in setting the direction for the future circularity agenda for ROCKWOOL products? Do you want to utilise your ability to identify and develop clever business solutions in a position that offers a high degree of responsibility?

This is who we are

At ROCKWOOL, you join Group Sourcing and Procurement (GSP), the global Procurement organisation within ROCKWOOL, with the responsibility ranging from strategic category planning and sourcing to purchase operations.

ROCKWOOL Group invests heavily in driving our sustainability agenda, including circularity of our products, which is based on stone wool, used in building constructions, agriculture, automotive, etc. To ensure solid solutions for this new initiative, the Group has created a sustainability knowledge centre involving all areas of our business – and you will be a natural part of this environment, ensuring the commercial aspect of the new set-up.

This is the role

Rockcycle® is a new strategic focus area in ROCKWOOL. You will have a high degree of influence on the direction of the job. It will be your overall responsibility to commercialise supply chain concepts and negotiate the terms and conditions across our markets. You will work closely with a range of stakeholders, both internally in GSP, Production, Supply Chain and Sales/Marketing, and externally with suppliers within the waste handling industry and transportation.

Specifically, your responsibilities and tasks will include:

  • Understanding business needs regarding Rockcycle® by interacting with relevant stakeholders in HQ and subsidiaries
  • Building up market knowledge of waste handling and related logistic service in various countries and markets – identifying suppliers and players and what options we have in each market
  • Driving proactive initiatives to improve the commercial and supply performance within scope
  • Developing and presenting findings and solutions for the business on an ongoing basis across the ROCKWOOL Group
  • Developing best practice solutions and sourcing strategies for supply of “Stone Wool Waste Management Services” in a sustainable, cost and supply-optimised way

“This is a chance to really become a one-of-a-kind specialist on the field, since no one has really done this before – and at the same time work with a high-attention sustainable area,” says Department Manager Ulrik Larsen.

This is what you offer
You document solid insights into waste and recycling global markets. You document solid understanding of circular economies and principles of such, which is also a special area of interest for you.

You are an excellent negotiator who has extensive market insights and can navigate the varied waters that is characteristic for our field in terms of opportunities, regulations, and market maturity. And with your outstanding stakeholder management skills, you take a diplomatic approach and listen when you hear concerns being raised, and you:

  • Are a skilled category manager
  • Are experienced with developing/commercialising concepts or have worked within the recycling industry and waste handling
  • Are not afraid to plunge headfirst into uncharted territories
  • Speak and write English fluently
  • Have a combination of a technical and a commercial mindset, enabling you to challenge solutions from a business point of view

This is what we offer
This position is a true chance to make a difference – both for our company, our department and for the environment. You will become a pioneer in the field and hence have an immense influence on how we – and the entire market – handle the circularity of stone wool in the future.

At ROCKWOOL, we aim to challenge you in your everyday work and give you a variety of touch points – locally and globally – to make it possible for you to grow with us.
