Hi, we are Ahold Delhaize, a global family of caring brands
Helping people eat well, save time, and live better. That is what Ahold Delhaize stands for. As one of the world’s largest and most forward-thinking (food) retail groups, our global family of local brands creates inspiring shopping experiences. Whether people shop at brick-and-mortars, prefer quick pick-ups, or opt for the convenience of ordering online, Ahold Delhaize delivers. 
As an Executive Assistant at Ahold Delhaize, your goal is to ensure efficient, effective and high qualitative secretarial and organizational support in a pro-active manner, handling most matters autonomously.

  • Resolve routine questions.
  • Schedule, coordinate and monitor appointments/meetings and issue reminders for them. 
  • Support in booking flights, trips, and organizing conferences. 
  • Flag potential obstacles and inform manager of follow-up on actions.
  • Act as a first point of contact for questions from associates and external parties to the manager, and answer or forward these questions.
  • Handle routine correspondence that does not need to be presented to the manager (e.g., confirmations, appointments, information documentation). When needed you provide info to others, distribute required documentation and prepare/distribute meeting reports.
