A key task for you will be to learn how to order materials for building projects and to make sure that these are delivered on time and in the right way. So you will learn how to communicate effectively and confidently with suppliers and merchants and colleagues.
Another important task is to contribute to our social media strategy. You will use your existing knowledge of social media and develop it into a business setting.
