Vacancy: Head of Business Development (Operations)
The Head of Business Development will be critical to enabling NADUVI’s rapid expansion going forward. They will take the lead on the most important operational projects, working closely with the COO and the business. A challenging role, given the company’s ambitions and the fact that operations and logistics take a central position in the business model.
A key responsibility for the Head of Business Development will be to develop the entire ecosystem that enables NADUVI’s partners to sell directly to consumers through the platform. This includes setting up a European logistics network for parcels and two-man-handling, involving cross-docks, warehouses, and an integrated IT system. Additionally, they will bring about a step-up in various operational processes that allow the company to run smoothly, e.g., by optimizing the order process and consumer mail flows or by realizing efficiency gains in customer care and the finance organization. The close connection between operations and tech requires the Head of Business Development to operate hands-on and, at times, act as a Product Owner or hack simple automation themselves.
The Head of Business Development will also be responsible for identifying improvement opportunities and initiating and executing strategic and operational projects. These could, for example, revolve around geographical expansion, new market entry, and the reduction of operational costs. Suppose their solutions call for additional resources outside of the current organization. In that case, the Head of Business Development will get the freedom to build a new team to get the job done.
Joining NADUVI now means becoming part of one of Europe’s fastest-growing e-tailers. The Head of Business Development will get the opportunity to contribute to the organization’s development and directly impact the future success of the scale-up.
NADUVI is working with Top of Minds to fill this vacancy.
