Do you just love to... 

  • The VOR (vehicle off road)  coordinator will have the responsibility to solve any VOR (most urgent backorder) in the shortest possible time (i.e. find a solution so the customers downtime is reduced to the minimum)
  • The VOR coordinator will have to check the full material supplier base as a potential resource for solution.
  •  If no immediate solution can be found the VOR coordinator has to provide the best possible information within 2 hours after reception of the order. In this case it is the responsibility of the VOR Coordinator to convince any party involved to prioritize the VOR Request.
  • To achieve these responsibilities, the VOR coordinator needs to have excellent communication skills in English (other languages are a +). Both to convince other people to walk the extra mile for us but also to clearly and efficiently communicate status of cases.
  • VOR orders being the most urgent order class in the volvo group means that a VOR coordinator needs to be very stress resistant and be professional/customer oriented when faced with critical situations and pressure from different angles.
  • A VOR coordinator needs to be an excellent team player with an open communication style to achieve the team goals.
