  • Outstanding commercial awareness, organisational, communication, costumer focus & internal influencing skills.
  • Capacity to build and maintain customer relationships.
  • Ability to collaborate efficiently with internal/external colleagues in a busy and fast-paced environment

If you feel like you meet the above requirements, we would love to hear from you. Please send your CV and cover letter to Camille Boyer [camille.boyer@quarto.com].
