Traceability Auditor er en nøgleposition i implementeringen af ​​Traceability Assurance Service's mål om at opretholde og øge kundeporteføljen og samtidig holde den høje kvalitet af audits. Hovedopgaven er at styre, gennemføre og administrere Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) audits og godkendelse af skovcertificering (PEFC™) Chain of Custody audits i Danmark.

Selvstændig, kundeorienteret og teamplayer
Når du selvstændigt, i ca. 50% af tiden, tager ud til kunder og laver audits skal du være velforberedt og skabe den gode dialog gennem respekt og tillid. Derfor vil det være naturligt, at du har et højt niveau af integritet og forretningsetik, og dermed forstår balancen mellem at være der for kunden uden at kompromittere din rolle som auditor.

Du skal være en holdspiller og have en åben holdning til andre kulturer, da vi samarbejder på tværs af grænser i vores organisation. Vi kommunikerer ofte med kollegaer over hele verden på Skype eller e-mail, og vi mødes mindst to gange om ugen på kontoret i Århus, hvor vi sparrer med hinanden og vender vores opgaver.
Vi ser gerne, at du har høj selvdisciplin og evner at strukturere de tildelte kunder, som skal auditeres inden for den givne tidsramme.

Du følger opgaven helt til døren gennem sikring af rapportskrivning og korrekt registrering af dokumenter.

Har du en splint i fingeren?
For os er det vigtigste, at du har den rigtige personlighed og det rette drive. Vi ser dog meget gerne, at du fx har en erhvervsuddannelse fra træforarbejdnings- eller tømmerhandelsindustrien eller alternativt en universitetsgrad i skovbrug, biologi, geografi, miljøledelse eller et beslægtet felt. Ideelt set har du allerede har nogle års erfaring fra arbejdsmarkedet. Det kan fx være fra en anden NGO eller naturbeskyttelsesprojekter - og hvis det er som auditor eller gennem arbejde med FSC/PEFC betragtes det som et stort plus.

Du er flydende på dansk og engelsk i både skrift og tale og så er du en ferm bruger af MS Office-pakken – med en overordnet og generel viden om administrative IT-systemer. Du skal have B-kategori kørekort, være klar på en 37 timers arbejdsuge og gerne bo i Jylland eller på Fyn – der er dog mulighed for hjemmearbejdsplads. 

Arbejdsmiljøet i top
Der er gode muligheder for at komme på internationale opgaver som auditor hen over tid – og du har helt generelt gode muligheder for vækst og faglig udvikling. Vi har et godt og behageligt arbejdsmiljø og det team, du bliver en del af, er både ambitiøst og udadvendt – og så glæder vi os enormt meget til at tage godt imod dig. 

Preferred by Nature er en nonprofitorganisation, der arbejder for bæredygtig arealanvendelse og klimavenlige løsninger. Med mere end 250 ansatte over hele verden opbygger vores projekter kapacitet, øger bevidstheden, bevarer naturen og strømliner bæredygtighed gennem innovation. Alle vores medarbejdere er medlemmer af organisationen, og vi får alle mulighed for at bidrage til den samlede udvikling af Preferred by Nature gennem den årlige generalforsamling.

Inden man bliver sluppet løs som Auditor, skal man uddannes (inkl. tage en eksamen). Denne uddannelse sørger vi for.  

Lyder det som jobbet for dig?

Så tøv endelig ikke med at sende os dit motiverede CV (på engelsk) inkl. forventning til løn inden den 26. november 2021 via nedenstående formular.
