Custom Project Officer - Antwerp/Bladel

BuzziSpace is looking for a Custom Project Officer working from Antwerp (BE) and Bladel (NL).

As Custom Project Officer you are responsible for managing the custom, bespoke requests from our customers. Customers often request products that differ in dimension, finish, and functionality to standard products. You are responsible from requests to follow-up production of these products.

Role and responsibilities

You evaluate the requests

  • When a request comes in via our sales organization, you determine whether the conditions on design, volume, turnover, or related sales are met in order to proceed with this request.
  • You consider what the customer desires versus what is technically and financially feasible and look for options that meet both criteria.
  • You evaluate the technical feasibility in close co-operation with our product developers, our production and external suppliers.
  • You calculate the cost price, set the sales price together with the internal stakeholders (e.g. Finance) and determine the conditions for the offer towards the customer.

You are the coordinator for custom orders

  • Once the customer accepts the offer and places the order, you step in as “project manager”.
  • You coordinate product development to make technical drawings, the purchasing process together with the purchase colleagues and the planning for production. Production can either be done in our plants in the Netherlands or the US or by an external supplier.
  • You safeguard that the custom process is being followed by all parties involved and continuously look for optimization opportunities. 

You share your knowledge on market requests

  • Custom requests reflect the market needs and might show possible opportunities for our standard portfolio.
  • You monitor and evaluate these opportunities and share and discuss these ideas with your Product Manager colleagues in your team.

You will be part of the Product Management team which is part of the Marketing department. You report to the Product Management Leader.

Your Profile

Besides being a fun colleague to work with, we are looking for someone who

  • has an interest in product and furniture design
  • has a technical interest and eagerness to know how products are constructed
  • is a team player with excellent planning and communication skills
  • has an eye for quality
  • is very meticulous in following up the project and in administration
  • can manage multiple tasks and projects simultaneously
  • is not afraid to have an opinion and to refuse certain requests in a professional manner
  • is flexible about her or his working place, operating mostly from Antwerp (BE) but very often from Kontich (BE) or Bladel (NL)
  • walks the talk regarding “happy and healthy workspaces”
  • can put a smile on our faces
