AT BASF INNOVATION CENTER GENT
At BASF Innovation Center Gent, all projects and ideas are rooted in a passion for science. From this passion sprouts an urge to make an impact on agriculture, and on a larger scale, on the world. As a manager you know how to foster and cultivate this urge so it comes to bloom.
We have different types of managers in our organisation, but currently we are looking for Group Leaders and Team Leaders.
As a group leader you are the driving force behind an entire team. You oversee their actions and provide the resources and stimuli needed so they can further develop their skillset for the current and future challenges. In short, you make sure everybody can perform at their best.
In order to do so, you constantly keep one eye on the internal evolutions (within your team, our innovation center and the company) and another on global new trends and innovations in your field of study.
Do you think you have what it takes to be a leader? This is the perfect occasion to get a taste of management level.
As a Team Leader, your main focus remains your operational tasks in the lab or greenhouse but you combine them with your first steps in people management. We provide you with the right training sessions to further develop your managerial skills.
After several years as a Team Leader, we sit down and evaluate together your growth as a leader. Depending on your development and personal aspirations, you either return to your operational level or are offered the opportunity to evolve towards a more senior leadership level.
