Project Manager with people management

Turnkey Projects / Machinery for the Processing Industry

Do you want to lead a group of Technical Project Managers and Project Engineers?

You will be the commercial Project Manager for a team of 5 people (Technical Project Managers and Project Engineers) and a continuous portfolio of 1-2 large turnkey projects and several smaller projects.

After a period of 6-12 months, including relevant training, you will take over the people management responsibility of your project team. You will lead them on a daily basis, as the Project Management organisation transforms into self-governing teams, each led by a commercial Project Manager, with reference to the Manager of PM´s.

Haarslev offers you management training, as well as training/introduction to their project management process and tools. 

Although you understand and have a natural interest in the technical side of a project, your main concern and focus will be on the commercial angle. You are involved from the offer phase, and after the hand-over meeting, you take full responsibility of the project, together with the assigned project team. You are controlling the project plan, oversee contractual issues, customer contact, quality, timeline, budget, and deliverables throughout the entire project phase, from design and until the plant is delivered, commissioned, and tested.

Your primary success criteria will be

  • Securing a sustainable contract, project economy, resources, delivery plan and execution
  • Managing and developing your team of technical project managers and project engineers, securing knowledge sharing across your own, as well as between other projects 
  • Stakeholder management, securing strong relations and proactive dialogue and troubleshooting with clients as well as with sales, design, manufacturing, purchasing and other departments relevant to the success of the projects
  • Financial and progress reporting and follow up as well as risk management and reporting
  • Securing resources for the project, quality of solutions and follow up with Supply Chain

Project Management in Haarslev is part of a large, global project organization. As a Project Manager you work together with a variety of internal and external specialists, suppliers, and departments in Haarslev, all contributing to the project. You have an important role in linking project members/deliveries from other departments and solving problems and tasks relating to the project.

We expect you to have a min. of two years of relevant professional experience as a Project Manager at Senior level, in an international environment.

Ideally, your experience stems from being a PM on complex, technical delivery projects incl. managing budgets, project teams, contracts, and time plans, using modern project tools and models. If not, you may have a longer track record with smaller projects.

Maybe you have worked in a more technical position before your current role, and you may also have completed a project management course / certification.

You possess a technical education at Bachelor level (Engineer, Marine Engineer or equivalent). You have a commercial and collaborative mindset and are well versed in the commonly Office- and Project related IT-programmes, as well as in English. You have a basic knowledge of engineering-/design programmes like Autodesk or similar.

Haarslev offers you management training as well as training in the types of project tools and processes that the company works with. You will have a key role in a growing, global market leading company, with exciting projects and international tasks, including traveling an estimated 30 - 40 days pr. year.
