Action is one of the largest, fastest growing non-food discount retailers in Europe. It currently has stores in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Austria and Poland. In 2017, Action opened their fifth distribution center near Toulouse and the opening of the next distribution centers will not be long. The rapid international expansion of Action brings many challenges and opportunities for the new Business Developer.
Action’s formula is crystal clear: low pricing and a fast-evolving range of products. Action knows how to score points on ‘price’ and ‘surprise’ and does so time and time again. That means customers love to come back – often several times a week. You’ll find premium brands such as Coca-Cola, Dove, Philips, Haribo and Bic on its shelves, but also private label brands such as Subliem, Blinq, Spectrum and Werckmann. The store is famous for its assortment in the categories decoration, personal care, toys and cleaning products, but it’s also growing in many other categories such as multimedia. This is a strategy that pays off because Action is growing exponentially across four axes:
It is expected that the responsibilities of the Business Developer will continue to expand with the growth of the business. But the Business Developer will also be able to make an impact from the get-go with the following responsibilities:
Its rapid expansion and high growth rate make Action a successful and rapidly developing organization. This will continue to bring a host of new challenges and opportunities in terms of processes, projects and professionalization. The Business Developer is part of the Business Development team and reports to Marjolein Slappendel, Director of Business Development.
“You’ll be able to shape the future of Action and your own role within this fast-paced environment. A proactive attitude is key. For example, you’ll actively identify the wishes and needs of the internal customer, and translate topics from concept into action. You’re driven to speed up progress and achieve tangible results.” – Marjolein Slappendel, Director of Business Development
