Kamstrup: Internship in Strategic Sourcing

Do you want to work with operational and strategic procurement tasks? Are you analytically strong and want to leave your mark on current and future procurement 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 one of the world’s leading manufacturers of smart system solutions for measuring energy and water consumption. 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 procurement 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 processes
As an Intern in the Strategic Sourcing team, you will work with many different operational and strategic procurement 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.
  • Implementing minor product changes with suppliers.
  • Controlling and updating master data.

Personality matters
We are seeking an ambitious student who can contribute to the business development of Kamstrup with great commitment and updated theoretical knowledge. You have a solid technical foundation as you are attending a bachelor’s or master’s degree program in Business Economics, Operations & Supply Chain Management, Value Chain Management or similar. 

As a person, you are persistent, proactive and result-oriented. You are also analytically strong and can acquaint yourself with new material continuously. As your work assignments include a broad contact with colleagues in the organization, it is important that you master oral and written communication at all levels. On a busy day, you take responsibility and work independently and structured with your tasks, but also appreciate close cooperation with your team.

The job requires fluency in written and spoken English

We offer more than just an internship
We offer a challenging internship in an international company where you are given independent responsibility for specific assignments, and where you can transform your theoretical knowledge into practical experience. As an intern, you will be included on an equal footing with the other employees in the team and you can thus expect a steep learning curve and a good starting point for an exciting career within procurement.

At Kamstrup, we focus greatly on the social relations between our interns across the organization and if you are ready, we offer you an exciting spring with great challenges and teamwork. In 2019, we were also elected by Aarhus Municipality and the international student house, Studenterhus Aarhus to be the best internship company in eastern Jutland on the basis of our work with interns.

A gratuity may be provided in recognition of your efforts if your place of study allows it. In addition, Kamstrup pays for public transport to and from work and offers a wealth of benefits counting a canteen scheme, fruit scheme, fitness facilities, in-house dental clinic, hairdresser and a free health clinic.
