We are looking for a new colleague to join our project team in the Fjernbane West project - the project responsible for the introduction of new signalling technology in Jutland.
The Signalling Programme, as the largest of its kind in Europe, is fully engaged replacing the old signalling system on the Danish railway with new computer-based technology. The system is aligned with the European standard, European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS). Replacing the system on the entire railway makes Denmark the first country to implement ERTMS on a national scale.
The project is supported by an international supplier base and consultants from across Europe, therefore our working language is English.
Your place of employment will be at our headquarters in central Copenhagen.
Schedule and delivery
As Project Lead, you will ensure timely delivery of the new system on one of the railway lines in Jutland, from the beginning of the engineering works until passenger transportation is in service.
Your main tasks and responsibilities are:
- Monitoring the schedule to ensure timely deliveries of both supplier and internal deliverables
- Managing the internal roll-out line team
- Coordinating with the supplier roll-out line team
- Resolving day-to-day issues within the agreed mandate
- Reporting progress to Project Management level
- Escalating issues to Project Management level.
You will be supported by an internal technical team, as well as by planning, risk management and contract management.
Furthermore, you will be working closely with our international supplier to ensure detailed follow-up of their deliverables and timely identification of any risks, as well as solving issues that arise along the way.
Engineer with analytical skills and structured approach
You have an academic educational background though more importantly, you have previous experience within project management and preferably also experience with large industrial development projects.
On a more personal level, we are looking for a team player with analytical skills, a structured and detailed approach as well as good communication and leadership skills. At the same time, you can work independently and towards given tasks and deadlines.
The role includes communicating with colleagues of many different nationalities. Our working language is English, both written and spoken, and documentation is mainly in English and Danish.
