If you are also keen to play a key role in the implementation and ramp-up of assembly and packaging lines, equipment, and processes, then you might be the new Project Manager for the Project Office team of Device Manufacturing Development (DMD).
About the department
You will join the Project Office within Device Manufacturing Development at the crossroad between Device R&D, Production and our equipment suppliers. You will be part of a team of 9 project managers based in Hillerød, where high engagement, innovation and ambition are key words in solving the everyday challenges for the Assembly & Packaging (A&P) department. We execute worldwide projects related to assembly and packaging equipment on new manufacturing sites, capacity expansion on existing sites and quality improvement/cost saving projects. We support device development projects from development to production and we collaborate with specialists with various backgrounds, who are all striving for excellence in executing projects.
As a Project Manager working with our global production organisation you can expect 10-50 days of travel activity yearly to support local production sites as far away as China and Brazil.
It is an exciting time to join DMD, as the organisation is facing a larger and more complex portfolio of projects to be initiated and executed over the coming years, including strategic projects impacting Novo Nordisk’s future product portfolio and new markets.
As Project Manager, you will lead projects or act as work package owner on larger projects within assembly and packaging technology areas. You and the project team will handle purchase of equipment, establish production facilities, deliver on-site support during implementation, ensure project transfer, support validation of production facilities and assist during ramp-up of new and/or modified assembly and packaging equipment. Additionally, the project will include participating in negotiations with external suppliers when purchasing assembly, packaging and supporting equipment.
In the projects, you will be responsible for planning and executing the project and for establishing a smooth and effective collaboration within cross organisational and international teams, ensuring that your projects meet quality, delivery and cost objectives. It is instrumental for your success, that you can inspire and motivate the project team to deliver excellent results by ensuring clear project scopes, integrated use of risk management and a project plan that secures transparency for all key stakeholders. Furthermore, you will need to negotiate project resources with line of business, maintain a strong sense of purpose, identify and proactively engage in a dialogue with key internal stakeholders across Product Supply globally (e.g. Steering group, production sites, Global Engineering & Sourcing, Quality Assurance (QA) and Regulatory Affairs) as well as with external suppliers.
You have a Bachelor or a Master's degree in Science in Engineering or similar combined with +7 years of experience as a Project Manager within medical/pharmaceutical manufacturing, operating and executing projects in a GxP regulated environment and working with validation of production related equipment. Ideally, you have gained an in-depth understanding of a broad range of pragmatic and technical solutions to all sorts of relevant issues, and hands on experience from an actual production site/factory would be ideal for the role.
On a personal level, you have excellent planning, networking, negotiation and communication skills, enabling you to continuously keep an overview of the state of progress, keep your stakeholders informed and prioritise accordingly. You are keen on motivating others and sharing your knowledge, and know how to adapt to multicultural environments. Furthermore, you have a strong personal drive enabling you to persistently pursue your goals and achieve results and you are able to evaluate situations, and take decisions independently when it is called upon.
