  • You will know/learn how the product teams work and a migration works

You are open to occasional travel for kickoff meetings and other implementation workshops
  • As you help our operating companies implement, you will ensure that their processes fit with our solutions – and if not, guide them, with the help of the customer success manager, on how they can adapt to make our new platform a success
  • You will also play a part in the change (CX), you will be part of workshops that come up with solutions that solve our end users’ problems and be responsible for the implementation of the outcomes, so design thinking knowledge is a bonus

  • You have solid experience managing all stakeholders cross-functionally in a global business – from C-suite to consultants
  • You have a proven track record of success in implementing a product that was proven in one country, to lots of other countries
  • You are able to balance the wishes of every OpCo to be unique with the need for scale and international applicability

  • You have a keen interest in all things digital and enjoy sparring internal stakeholders and product teams
  • You are a logical, analytical thinker with strong customer service skills
  • You are a people person that likes processes – you like to help, brainstorm, and come up with solutions
  • You know how to turn a customer’s objection into an opportunity for improvement, you can work with all types of personalities to get the best results
  • You fully understand the processes we use at Randstad, and the unique challenges faced by our business
  • You can shift gears quickly between outlining and guiding the strategic use of the product to describing detailed functionality questions and relay these back to the team
