Have you got the drive and entrepreneurship necessary to manage our international Airports and Parcel projects? Do you have the commercial attitude to play the game with our customers? Are you someone who develops project teams and third parties and encourages them to achieve the almost unattainable? If so, you're the ideal Project Manager for us!
As (Junior) Project Manager Airports & Parcel Solutions, it's your job to set up a project and keep an eye on how every aspect of a project is progressing as per plan. You will have ultimate responsibility for the successful delivery of one or more Material Handling projects and form the link between the client, the team at Vanderlande and subcontractors.
We expect an autonomous and client-oriented approach. We also expect the ability to manage projects worth up to 5 million or to be responsible for a part of a large complex project (> € 50 million) under supervision of a Project Director.
You will manage projects with tight deadlines and work in and with different cultures. You will deliver realistic project plans and have the ability to implement them such that the achievement of all of the following relevant key factors is guaranteed: customer satisfaction, expectation management, time, budget, quality and safety.
During the implementation phase you will have commercial responsibility, eventually resulting in a successful acceptance of your projects by the customer and the internal service organization.
