Introductie vacature 

Before this year began, you and your team set some goals. Increasing invoice accuracy was one of them. Every month, you have a meeting to discuss KPIs. Today's agenda includes the invoicing project. Enthusiastically, one of your employees shows in Power BI what percentage you started with in January and what the percentage is now: an increase of 15%! You are happy as well, because you did this together. You held discussions with different departments and suppliers. And in the end, you managed to get everyone on board. Now, incorrect invoices only occur sporadically, and that has a direct impact on Huhtamaki Fiber Technology. You express your appreciation to your team and, feeling proud, conclude the meeting. On the way to your office, you think about the growth and development you have experienced together this year, and how everyone has done their bit. This is what you were looking for when you applied for this job: impact, development and helping people grow. You look forward to the new challenging projects for 2024!
