Kamstrup: Internship in Sourcing

Do you want to work with operational and strategic sourcing tasks? Are you analytically strong and want to leave your mark on current and future sourcing analyses? Are you ready for an educational internship in an international company where you can work with short- and long-term goals in a structured way?

Become part of the Strategic Sourcing team at Kamstrup
Kamstrup is a Danish technology company, which was founded in 1946 with employees in more than 20 countries and headquarters in Stilling south of Aarhus. We believe no one should have to question their access to clean water or the prospect of a sustainable energy future. Our smart metering solutions empower utilities and societies to reduce water loss and increase energy efficiency by providing them with the insight to act and the data to target their efforts.

As an Intern, you will be part of the Strategic Sourcing team, consisting of 20 experienced and committed colleagues who are jointly responsible for negotiating, sourcing and carrying out sourcing projects. The department works cross-organizational and is fast moving, providing space for challenges, input and a daily life where every day is different. The close contact with your colleagues within the team will also give you ample opportunity for professional coaching and personal development.

An internship with focus on analyses and procurement/sourcing processes
As an Intern in the Strategic Sourcing team, you will work with many different operational and strategic sourcing tasks. During the internship, it will be your primary responsibility to carry out analyses and follow-up tasks in various projects.

Your tasks will also include:

  • Preparing analyses for spend, category segmentation and cost-down evaluations
  • Developing future analyses and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
  • Assisting our strategic purchasers in various procurement processes, including participation in RFI , RFQ, supplier selection and negotiation
