There is huge growth potential for the role and individual if they show the right skill set, determination, and motivation to succeed.

How this role support us:

COMPANY is building a brand-new factory in Vietnam. The role is critical to helping support the SEA Factory new build. There will be challenges coordinating the efforts from Europe and Asia, to get the factory started on time. We will have only a temporary office to start with and a very small team of expats and a few local hires. Therefore, we will need a local individual who has good knowledge of local customs and culture but who is very globally minded.

This person will need to be energetic, enthusiastic, and driven to succeed. As we will be starting the office from scratch, the individual will need to show the COMPANY values and really embody them as we bring on new employees. I envisage this individual really “buddying” up with new starters. Therefore, the person really needs to understand the COMPANY culture and mindset.

The individual will need to of course be fluent in Vietnamese but also be fluent in English. Both written and writing. The individual will need to be able to communicate well with all levels of the organisation.
