Real Estate Expansion Manager
Location: Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands

Picnic is expanding its business across Europe. We are developing an international portfolio of strategic Real Estate, essential for the future growth of our business. The  Real Estate Expansion Manager plays a pivotal role in shaping and delivering Picnic’s expansion in The Netherlands.

Where you fit in

Picnic’s real estate portfolio includes hundreds of locations ranging from large scale robotic Fulfilment Centers to small last-mile delivery Hubs in The Netherlands, Germany, France and other countries that we are targeting.

As our Real Estate Expansion Manager in the Netherlands, your mission is to acquire and develop new locations. This includes the end-to-end process from search, working with our partner agencies, to the technical assessment of properties, and successful negotiations with owners and developers. The scope ranges from acquisition of existing properties, to the development of new properties, and the renewals and relocations of properties already under contract. The portfolio includes smaller last mile hubs, existing distribution centers as well as large sized greenfield warehouses. You will mostly focus on the search for last mile hubs.

During negotiations, you show commercial sense, tact and sensitivity, and ability to create deals. No matter whether you are dealing with construction companies, real estate managers or public stakeholders - you always find the right tone.
