International Project Manager for design and 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
As part of ROCKWOOL, Rockfon makes acoustic ceiling and wall solutions to create beautiful, comfortable spaces. Based in Hedehusene, Denmark, you will join our Design and Innovation department at an exciting time with a great company focus on exploring new interior design innovations.

Together with 4 project manager colleagues working across Europe in the Rockfon innovation organisation, you will make your mark on our PM function and shape how we steer brand new ideas towards product development.

“Innovation-wise, we are in a very interesting phase right now, and you’ll get to realise completely new design ideas in a global company where your projects are a top priority,” says Teemu Rekonen, Head of Design and Innovation.


This is the role
You will be responsible for managing and implementing new design innovation projects from initial idea to product launch. You will structure the project by initiating working groups, following up on actions and timeline and having a helicopter view.

In every project, you will work with a project team consisting of a product manager and the specialists you need to make the realisation of the project a success. The role includes significant cross-functional and international stakeholder management throughout Product Management, Operations, Supply chain, Quality, Communications, Purchase and Rockwool International.

Travelling 40-50 days a year, primarily across Europe, you will:
 

  • Manage according to the Rockfon Innovation process and continuously improve the process

  • Ensure the relevant approvals and certificates for the projects as well as the health & safety checks for implementation of all new products

  • Screen and assess third party suppliers from across the world

  • Plan and execute pilot tests at Rockfon factories, third-party suppliers and construction sites mainly in Europe

  • Ensure successful communication between the development teams and all stakeholders

  • Coordinate sustainable raw material developments with our materials specialist and external suppliers to integrate with Rockfon solutions

  • Ensure continuous innovation through collaboration with external parties, e.g. development partners, universities and knowledge institutions

We have a great onboarding programme ready for you where you will be introduced to all your stakeholders and our products, see the factories, visit key suppliers and receive product and system training. You might even help mount a ceiling or go on the road with a sales colleague. Additionally, you will be given your first project fairly early, 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, ensuring that you are up to date on the latest PM tools and methods – PMP certificate would be a plus

  • You have a technical background (min. BSc level), e.g. as a mechanical or building engineer, enabling you to carry out technical dialogues with specialists and factories

  • You are fluent in English

  • It is a great plus if you have experience with innovation environments, so you are used to the uncertain aspects of the process


This is what we offer
We offer you a position within a fast-moving innovation department where the sky is the limit. Designing completely new concepts means that nothing is definite, and it forms the perfect environment for you to grow as a project manager and shape your own position. And as you constitute our HQ project manager function, you can also look forward to leaving your mark on best practice across innovation and R&D.

In Rockfon, we have an abundancy of knowledge and experience, and you will surround yourself with extremely talented colleagues that will help you realise your potential and make you proud of the solutions you create together.

Finally, when joining Rockfon, you will be part of the ROCKWOOL Group and enjoy all the development and network opportunities a large international organisation has to offer.

Interested?
If you want to know more, please contact Teemu Rekonen, Head of Design and Innovation, tel.: +45 2299 5743 or via mail: teemu.rekonen@rockfon.com. Please submit your application and CV in English in the same field in our recruitment system via the below link before Monday the 24th of January.
