Although we have clients in several European countries (such as retailers, wholesalers, importers and catering companies), it is also highly recommended that you bring some of your own connections.
The fruits you will sell come both from our team in Europe, our other divisions (Americas, Africa, Oceania), as well as your own efforts. We have growers / packers / shippers all over the world, but it is highly recommended that you bring your own connections as well.

Although this position reports to our Europe Division Manager, it is extremely important that you are motivated and that you do not need constant supervision or micro-management.
Although we are very tech-savvy and use WhatsApp in a meaningful way throughout the company, it is extremely important to speak on the phone every day with our team, producers, service providers and customers.
You need to understand that in international business the 9 to 5 mindset is just an aspiration that rarely materializes. It is important that you are readily available when the opportunity arises.
A competitive base salary is offered, as well as a bonus based on the achievement of sales targets.
