Would you like to work in a very hands-on commercial position, and help execute plans you assisted making? Do you enjoy working in a structured and organized way? As Assistant Account Manager, you work with the largest Norwegian retailers and build solid, functional Account Manager capabilities.

Provide analyses and develop strong customer relations

As Assistant Account Manager, your day-to-day responsibilities concern the Grocery and E-commerce Channel, specifically for large Norwegian chains. In doing so, you support a Key Account Manager (KAM) in developing strong customer relations. Moreover, you help deliver value for our customers and consumers in cooperation with other stakeholders, e.g. Operations, Marketing and Customer Service.

More specifically, you:
– Support the creation of world class customer business plans with high quality data analysis.
– Coordinate, order and secure the implementation of in-store materials and national campaigns, and you take the lead in the creation and analysis of planograms and product listings
– Manage the forecast process for customers, providing relevant material and analysis, i.e. planning launch waves and monthly/full year sales targets
– Assist the KAM in preparing for customer meetings by creating presentations and source relevant analyses, follow-up on meetings as well as assist in the S&OP process towards the customer
– Play a vital role in internal and external reporting, incl. customer specific reports
– Together with KAM and our field sales team, you secure seamless in-store execution at our retailers

You will be part of a team of five Assistant Account Managers, and you all report to one of our Key Account Managers, located in Denmark.

Collaborate across borders and functions

We look forward to welcoming you in a supportive, collaborative network and Nordic team structure. You will join a group of about 15 fun and creative colleagues at our Oslo office, and work with a range of internal and external stakeholders, enabling you to build a broad network across the entire LEGO Group. So, you will experience an environment that will help you to develop deep expertise and a thorough understanding of our international business. We will give you the freedom, space and trust to make a real impact in our department – and we will help you to learn, grow and fulfil your own potential. We achieve extraordinary results, because we enjoy what we do. So will you.

“This is a fun and rewarding role, where you learn, grow and fulfil your potential, as you build hands-on functional competences in a great team. As an added bonus, you get a broad network across the LEGO Group and the largest retailers in Norway,” says Key Account Manager Dennis Winther Larsen.


Business or sales acumen and Excel expertise

You are a strong team player and skilled communicator, and you collaborate easily with customers and stakeholders. You enjoy an independent work style and hold the following qualifications:
– A Bachelor degree in Marketing or Business. However, a master’s degree is preferable. It is a clear advantage if you have 1-2 years of working experience in the FMCG-industry
– As e-commerce is increasingly becoming a focus area for our customers, a knowledge within this field is a bonus.
– Advanced Excel skills and knowledge of basic software applications in MS Office. Knowledge of SAP/BW is a plus
