Team Manager - fermentation optimization team
If you bring a degree within biotechnology and skills as motivating and inspiring manager backed by a healthy dose of entrepreneurial spirit, this could very well be your perfect job. You will get the opportunity to set the direction for a team of 5 skilled chemists and impact your own job as well as the production at 6 sites across the international Chr. Hansen organization. In Chr. Hansen you will be part of a very successful company. We are the world’s leading supplier of bacteria for the dairy, meat and wine industry as well as probiotics for humans and animals and for plant protection.
People manager, process optimizer and stakeholder manager
As Manager for our fermentation optimization team your focus is to deliver fermentation optimization solutions to our factories in close collaboration with global production in the EU and the US. You will link Process Development and Production and ensure implementation of solutions in close cooperation with the involved production units. As such, a close and constructive dialogue with Production Managers at the factories will be of vital importance to succeed.
Your tasks include to:
- Identify new ways of optimizing our fermentation processes - with your team
- Engage with key stakeholders at our factories to ensure smooth implementation of solutions
- Lead, motivate and develop your team
- Be an active part of our Process Innovation Management group
- Establish and run partnerships with universities
You can look forward to travel approx. 20 days per year to meet colleagues and partners at our global production sites, primarily in Europe and the US.
Experience from industrial production, process development and/or fermentation optimization
You have a degree at minimum M.Sc. level in the field of biotechnology backed by hands on experience from industrial production, process development and/or fermentation optimization. In Addition, you bring people management experience from either a team leader role or a project management position - and you have a genuine interest in being a positive enabler to other people.
Your many international contacts call for your ability to establish good relations to people across professional, cultural and geographical borders. This also takes good communications skills including the ability to explain why and how a new solution will benefit the implicated people and production units. As Manager you must naturally also be able to set ambitious goals and have the stamina needed to turn ideas into tangible results - within agreed deadlines and in high quality.
Your new team
You will head 5 dedicated Chemists covering 4 nationalities based at the Chr. Hansen headquarters in Hørsholm, approx. 30 minutes drive north of the Copenhagen city center.
