As you will be part of an international company you must expect 30-40 travel days per year.
You have a project management track record equivalent to IPMA C level including 3-5 years of experience with project management preferably within Purchasing and Finance. A good understanding of how to drive change management processes and master the facilitation of processes, decision making and workshops is a must.
Maybe you have a background as management consultant combined with experience from large projects and leading teams in an international corporate environment.
Working in teams truly motivates you and you have the ability to motivate and inspire the people you work with including an exceptional talent for empowering others to strive for the common goal.
You are persistent and able to facilitate and drive projects while managing internal and external resources. As a person, you have a strategic and commercial mind-set, a great drive as well as a holistic, analytical and structured approach to tasks.
As you will engage with different stakeholders and have close contact to many nationalities across the VELUX organisation, you must be fluent in English, both orally and in writing.
Our team operates in an informal, dynamic and professionally stimulating and inspiring environment with competent and committed colleagues where commitment and mutual respect are among our core values.
We believe in empowering people, and we support this through sharing knowledge, delegating responsibility and investing in people who strive to make a difference. We believe that commitment and professional development contributes to great company results. At the VELUX Group, we give you the chance to grow. To impact your own career.
