The Schippers Group is originally a Dutch company and does not deny its origins. The Netherlands is the second agricultural exporter in the world and Dutch livestock farming is at the forefront when it comes to knowledge development and innovation. The Schippers Group plays an important role here and also brings this knowledge abroad.
We help our farmers to reduce the use of antibiotics by (further) improving animal health. We do this by developing and selling innovative products and concepts. In addition, we train and coach our customers in the field of farm hygiene. The result: In countries where we are active, the use of antibiotics is decreasing tremendously; so we are really on the right track!
The Schippers Group is conquering the world: we are growing at lightning speed and in mid-2021 we moved into a hypermodern head office of 42,000 m2 near Eindhoven (the Netherlands). We extend our "standard range" to more than 100,000 products and are now active in more than 40 countries worldwide. Within 5 years every farmer must have access to MS Schippers products anywhere in the world.
Meanwhile our growth has resulted in 500+ employees, 25,000+ products and 12+ offices; we are increasingly positioning ourselves in an international market. The growth of recent years has made us realise that the possibilities are endless. We are more ambitious than ever and we make every effort to let our customers farm even better.
Within the coming years the export department will create spectacular growth. During your internship you will have the opportunity to be part of this success story. We want you to investigate and build a network in our home markets with partner companies that are active in other European markets. In some countries we are just starting up. You will be the first to start making the connection. We want you to actively connect to markets to start building up a network of contacts in the livestock industry. During your internship you will have the opportunity to explore the interesting and innovative world of livestock.
Our goal is to extend our international network in the European Livestock industry. We are looking for someone who will contact, invite and be a host to customers coming to visit our HyCare facilities and Office. Besides that you will be investigating the Key Opinion Leaders within the European markets and how we can bind them to our brand.
