Join our Deployment Leaders and help them to initiate and implement improvement measures and optimization processes across the Business Units. If you’ve got commercial experience and you’re a Six Sigma pro (a “Master Black Belt”), you have the potential to become an Initiative Leader, which entails selecting (“scoping”) and coordinating projects and training Black, Green, and White Belts. If you’re not yet a master, you may join as an Initiative Core Team Member and contribute to our improvement projects by applying Lean Sigma tools.
This is a hugely varied area, ranging from micro-level administration (involving support responsibilities for office and site management, for example), through providing business support at country or regional level, to assisting with the management of legal entities at the global level.
Obviously, our employees are the focus here. HR Corporate/Group deals with global HR, whereas HR Administration and HR Competence Centers offer their services at regional and country levels. You may also work for HR on a local level by becoming an HR Consultant.
If you have a gift for sales, this is the right place for you. You will make an important contribution to the company’s success, whether by providing internal support in Sales Administration for pricing, sales, and business management measures, or by assisting Sales Management in your own particular segment. Business Development, which focuses on identifying and/or providing support for new business opportunities at Clariant, is a most important related area.
In order to let the world know about us and what we stand for, you’ll promote our brand image and ensure that key external stakeholder groups and corporate media organizations understand the Clariant brand. Another important field within this area is Investor Relations, where your mission will be to provide current and potential shareholders as well as the financial analyst community with up-to-date information about our company.
You may wish to concentrate on the business line, in particular local business line accountability. Or you might like to widen your focus to the regional level. Planners and strategists will also be able to put their talents to good use: we’re looking for people to conduct corporate business and strategy planning for Clariant and to assume responsibility for mergers & acquisitions at a corporate level.
Marketing & Product Management
In Product Management you will oversee a product or product group portfolio across its life cycle, whereas in Key Account Management you will strengthen relationships with our most important customers. If you have a creative flair, join our Marketing team and provide us with marketing intelligence, devise and implement marketing strategies, and improve customer relationships. You may also take on a role in Marketing and Business Support, where we provide general customer service on many levels.
If you have an eye for detail and always know how to get to the right information, you’ll feel at home here. You’ll help us perform corporate audits across the entire Clariant organization and play an important role in continually improving our processes.
This comprises areas such as Accounting, Global Treasury, Tax, and Finance. Major tasks performed in Accounting include recording and reporting transactions, maintaining controls, and preparing financial statements. Global Treasury optimizes the Group’s financial structure and results. In Tax, you’ll see to our tax planning and help the company adapt its structures to current market conditions. Finally, Finance is concerned with all other local and regional financial activities.
