  • Support GCT Buyers in both Service and Production and cross-functional partners to develop strategies and implement solutions
  • Identify and implement cost reductions

  • Project management skills and process discipline
  • Willing to work a hybrid schedule in the Dearborn, MI area
  • Human Center Design Thinking Experience - nice to have
  • Experience using SAP - a plus
