International Project Manager

22 February 2021

International Project Manager for Innovation Projects.

Are you ready to take the next step in your project management career, working across functions, disciplines, and cultures to manage complex, global innovation projects from A-Z?

This is who we are
At Rockfon, we make acoustic ceiling and wall solutions to create beautiful, comfortable spaces. Based in Denmark, you will join our R&D and Certification team – a central, global Group function within the Innovations department who together work on innovation – from initial idea to implementation.

You will work alongside 4 skilled project managers, who realise innovation projects based on business needs, strategy, competition or even brainstorms. In every project, you will have a project team with a product manager and the specialists you need to make the realisation of the project a success. The project focus for this function is the radical and design innovations, meaning the front-end of innovation.

This is the role
You will be responsible for managing and implementing innovation projects within the Rockfon organisation. This entails leading and executing the projects from start until launch including coordination with Product Management, Operations, Supply chain, Quality, Communications, Purchase department and Rockwool International. In this process, you will make sure to keep innovation going by ensuring collaboration with external parties, e.g. development partners (colabs), universities and knowledge institutions. Travelling 50-60 days a year across Europe, you will:

  • Ensure the relevant approvals and certificates for the projects and ensure the health & safety check for implementation of all new products
  • Screen and assess third party suppliers
  • Plan and execute pilot tests in the factory and at job sites
  • Collaborate closely with the core development teams and all stakeholders
  • Coordinate sustainable raw material developments with our materials specialist and external suppliers to integrate with Rockfon solutions

Your challenge will be to manage these complex projects across disciplines. But we have a great onboarding programme ready for you where you will be introduced to all your stakeholders, see the factories and be introduced to our products, visit key suppliers and receive product and system training. You might even be on a scaffold mounting a ceiling or go on the road with a sales colleague to learn. But also, you will quite quickly get your first project, allowing you to learn on the go and hit the ground running.

This is what you offer

  • You have 3+ years of project management experience running complex projects
  • You have a technical background (min. BSc level), e.g. as mechanical or building engineer along with hands-on technical skills, allowing you to have the technical dialogue with specialists and factories
  • It is a plus if you have experience with innovation environments
  • You are fluent in English

As a person, you are structured and have great planning skills. Moreover, you can work across cultures, and you are open and ready to learn. Finally, you are a great communicator who has no problem being in contact with many stakeholders, including potential suppliers.

This is what we offer
In this role, you will get to see the results of your projects in the market, so your innovation will be very visible. Also, you will gain a job where routine steps aside and innovation teaches you new and sometimes unexpected things. You will have some professional sounding boards in our  4 project managers, and you can be sure that we will support your projects by bringing in the expertise we need to succeed. Finally, as a part of Rockfon, you will be part of the Rockwool Group and enjoy all the development and network opportunities a large international organisation has to offer.
