Your day at NWP
The NWP office is located right next to The Hague Central Station; at the International Water House. On entering the building you’ll pass our canteen where our hostesses serve meals at lunchtime. But lunch is still some hours away, so you first get your drink at one of our pantries, before you install yourself at a desk of your choice with the laptop of your choice (Mac or Windows). Or you might work from home, since working hours are flexible.
You put together the programmes of meetings especially related to small and medium-sized enterprises and scale-ups and in the field of water technology. Much appreciated meetings to keep members and partners up to date on all kinds of water-related developments on these topics.
During a frequent round of calls you talk to our partners and members to stay up to date on their business and needs both in The Netherlands and abroad. You know how to convert the gathered information into concrete business opportunities and enthusiastically share your thoughts with colleagues to gather their views.
You spend your day talking to embassies, ministries, members and other partners and stakeholders. In co-operation, you are arranging business delegations’ visits to the Netherlands or outgoing trade missions. You have a good understanding of the needs and challenges of small and medium-sized enterprises and scale-ups. Meanwhile making sure you manage your projects effectively and efficiently.
You also present your new ideas on how to optimize our NWP-members services. You follow up on leads that are generated from your network and that will lead to business for our members or NWP. You work out your plans for network growth and business development.
