Experience of Procurement and Marketing


I have experience with procurement and in marketing departments. I am focused  to be at my best in the purchasing process both at operational and strategic levels. I also have experience in marketing and sales when I'm in previous roles designed the company's websites and social media. My advantage is that I have easy to see structures and enjoy problem solving, as my previous client can attest.
Now I am looking for a company that works with procurement and market issues in Malmö / Lund area to become part of a larger context
