When it comes to Linn’s own background, her path has not always been linear, but has taken the twists and turns that contribute to her valuable experience. Back in 2013, she was working in Västerås as a website manager for a newly started online beauty shop. “At the same time, I was in charge of managing the purchases to the store, online shop and salon. After a while, purchasing felt like my calling so after four years I decided to get a deeper understanding for the profession and went back to studying,” she explains.
After taking a career break to complete her studies and travel, she started working within the purchasing function at Linxon. In her current role, she defines the procurement strategy for different projects by managing the Tender Sourcing & Project Procurement Plan. Her job involves preparing requests for proposal, negotiating with suppliers and ensuring orders are placed and delivered to the project.
“I want to create good customer relationships, but my main focus is to invest heavily in supplier relationships after the pandemic,” she explains. “Savings and quality are my highest priority so for the future, I aim to work even more strategically on better relationships and more effective workflows.”
