About the role

You will be responsible for supporting our Future 26 strategy by delivering predominantly sustainability related Capex projects across our manufacturing sites in Denmark. The projects are medium to large in size covering scope, schedule, cost, quality, resource and risk.


More specifically your responsibilities will be:

  • Developing and aligning detailed project sourcing strategies, tenders, negotiations and contract execution in cooperation with Procurement
  • Managing project changes through the right change management processes
  • Handling project communication amongst the project team, suppliers and key stakeholders
  • Managing project risks through a collaborative risk management approach
  • Creating and managing project construction plan including clear H&S plans
  • Supporting Site Operations through an effective Change Management process


Who are you
We expect you have BSc. or MSc. degree in Mechanical/Marine Engineering or related field. Alternatively, a minimum of 5 years of experience in a technical / project management role delivering medium to large technical projects.


You have relevant theoretical knowledge and experience in the industrial utility areas and energy efficient solutions. It would be an advantage if you hold a Project Management certification (PMI, IPMA or similar).


Your communication and network building skills are excellent and you use these capabilities to motivate and make a difference for your team, the projects and the organization. Naturally, you are results oriented with a strong drive and pro-active approach.


We expect you are fluent in English (oral and written) and it would be an advantage if you speak Danish.  As the job requires quite a lot of travelling in Denmark, we expect you hold a valid driver’s license.

Application and contact
If you want to drive Capex projects and help shape the industry, then seize this exciting opportunity. We will be reviewing applications on an on-going basis and will close the recruitment once we have identified the right candidate.
