Vacancy by Ventura Systems

  • Ventura Systems
  • Bolsward
  • 3 months

Education: HBO (Technical) Business Administration, Commercial Economics and International Business

Dive with us into the world of Ventura Systems, seen through the eyes of both potential and existing suppliers. Together we go on a journey of discovery and convert the research results into concrete actions within our organization.

What are you going to do?

You will work for our Strategic Technical Purchasing (STB) department with a market research in which you examine the position of Ventura Systems through the eyes of an existing or potential supplier. What is the goal? At a time when both the market and our organization are constantly changing, it is essential to examine whether we are still an exciting partner for suppliers. Can we still contribute to their goals? And more importantly, can we grow strategically together?

But we also face the challenging question: are we sufficiently in the spotlight for potential (automotive) suppliers who supply various raw materials? We want to work with you to make sure our brand and capabilities are clear to suppliers who want to work with us.

In short, join us and discover how we can take our purchasing approach to a higher level. Together we build a future where partnership and growth go hand in hand.

Who are you?

You have an independent and enterprising attitude to carry out the market research. Because our suppliers are not all located around the corner from Bolsward, you may have to travel. It is important that you are prepared for this. Finally, you have an affinity with numbers, where financial insight is important.

Will you join us?

Ventura Systems is the leading producer of innovative door systems for public transport. Our products are supplied worldwide to many renowned manufacturers of buses and autonomous vehicles. From 2023, we will also be using our knowledge and experience to supply (electric) door systems for trucks for city distribution. We focus on the development of reliable, safe and tailor-made door systems for intensive use.

Our professionals create tailor-made access solutions that increase the quality of (public) transport systems and improve the functionality of the vehicle. We do this through a combination of the latest technology, a flexible production process and an eye for people and nature. It is not for nothing that the Ventura door systems are used by our customers all over the world.

What started small in 1994 has grown into an international company with offices in Bolsward, Germany, USA, Hong Kong and Australia. More than 200 professionals now work with great enthusiasm and pleasure at Ventura Systems.

What do we offer you?

During the internship you will become acquainted with, among other things, our organization, the employees and the processes within the STB department. Our goals here are to treat you as a colleague in the team, to develop talent by offering good quality guidance and finally a positive completion of your internship. This means there is time to:

  • evaluate your internship regularly;
  • contribute to learning objectives and assignments that you must complete;
  • provide support for graduate research.

In addition, you can expect the following:

  • An international organization with a constant eye for innovation that is in full development and where you are sure of added value with this research;
  • Collaboration in an informal, no-nonsense environment where open communication predominates;
  • An instructive internship for the duration of 20 weeks with a market-based internship allowance;
  • A small, large organization: small enough for fun, short lines and the opportunity for you to actually make a difference and get to know everyone. Large enough to be an important player in the market and to pay full attention to innovation and your personal development.

Are you interested in the strategic purchasing profession and enthusiastic about this market research?

Then we would like to receive your motivation and CV. You can send your application to  for the attention of Margriet Land (HR Advisor).
