The Danish Signalling Programme – the largest of its kind in Europe – is fully engaged in the replacement of the signalling system on the Copenhagen S-bane network with a modern Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling system.

We are looking for a Deputy Project Manager to join the management team in the S-bane section. The section is currently responsible for the introduction of the new signalling system CBTC and will in the future be responsible for executing the changes to the signalling system that will naturally come during the lifetime of the system.

A focus of the Deputy Project Manager will be the upgrade of the S-bane signalling system to driverless operation.  This change is made as an integrated part of DSB’s Future S-bane programme and the deputy portfolio manager will be an important partaker in securing a smooth transition of the department/delivery from S-bane to DSB.

We are in the process of transforming the section from a project to a portfolio organization.

The S-bane section is part of the area Signals in the division Anlæg (Railway Implementation) which is responsible for implementing, maintaining and developing the signalling systems on both the main line and the S-bane.

The signalling system is delivered by an international supplier and the portfolio team consists of Banedanmark employees and consultants from across Europe, therefore our office language is English.

Your place of employment will be at our headquarters in central Copenhagen, but working from DSB location at Høje Taastrup shall be foreseen. In 2027 it is the intention that the department and the delivery of the change is transferred to DSB.

Deputy Project Manager
As Deputy Project Manager you will be part of the S-bane management team and will act as substitute for the section manager/portfolio manager when relevant.

You will together with the rest of the S-bane management team be responsible for:

  • The transition from a project to a portfolio organization
