You will be a part of a team managing global product development projects. With reference to the Director of R&D Project Management, you will be responsible for the whole stage gate process from business case to market launch. The team is newly established and you will play an integral role in establishing best practice and work routines to raise the bar for project management in R&D.
You will communicate and engage with stakeholders on all levels to ensure the necessary support to carry out the project and anchor the commitment in concordance between what goes on in the project and the relevant expectations and opportunities. You will deliver all elements of the project including planning, governance, risk control, change management, process facilitation and management of senior stakeholders.
Other tasks could be to:

You bring to the position a relevant master's degree in Economics, Engineering, Business Administration or similar and you combine your theoretical background with at least 5 years of relevant work experience in larger organisations probably from a similar position as senior project manager or program manager.
Besides being a highly skilled project manager, you also have experience from working with business models, process improvements, budgeting, assets planning and team development.
You have excellent communication skills, a high proficiency in Excel, PowerPoint and other relevant project management tools (i.e. Primavera). The role also requires you to be fully proficient in English. You could have experience from establishing partnerships with suppliers.
On a personal level, you organise and manage the development projects with considerable initiative and risk. You act as an entrepreneur and run your projects as a small business, and you are seen as a business leader and an innovator of new ideas and processes. You challenge status quo when you see opportunities for creating better business results.
We offer an exciting job with great opportunities for professional and personal development and you will join our management- and project management courses to improve your competencies.
In addition to operating at a highly professional level, our team is characterised by an informal tone and a healthy sense of humor.
