Where the Chemistry Happens
Reporting administratively to the Global Pricing Manager, you will support the Marketing, Sales, Controlling and Supply Chain departments in the Americas with Precious Metal (PM) pricing and coordination support. You will become an Precious Metal expert, supporting the business from quotation to invoice including handling the Precious Metal coordination tasks.

The Metal coordination role (75%) focuses on avoiding PM losses by monitoring the CCP PM Pool Accounts and ensuring the customer has provided the metal before the production starts and by monitoring closely PM lease charges. You will further support the business and the customer with precious metal transactions, acting as an intermediate between CCP and CCM who provides the metal. This means helping with tracing of the metal, refining, buying, selling, leasing and performing final metal settlements and reporting.
