What does this role feel like?
Our scope of works include detailed engineering, manufacturing, delivery, installation, test and commissioning of Low Voltage and Medium Voltage Power Distribution Systems for international datacenter projects – including Sivacon busbar trunking systems, Air and Gas insulated Medium Voltage switchgears – NXAIR, 8DJH, NXPLUS C, modular solutions including ehouse, skid, and frames, Low Voltage Power Distribution Units (PDU), etc. including digital protection and automation systems such as SIPROTEC, etc.
Important is to understand, prepare, and execute a professional and executable project management plan. This plan will bring the maximum momentum to the project and maximum positive energy to the team. One of the main things you will bring to the table is experience in proper stakeholder management – especially at project important milestones i.e. when the engineering phase is to finish after Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and we are to start site works including installation, test, commissioning, etc., or when Site Acceptance Test (SAT) is to be done.

Since our projects are mainly done in large scale datacenters – and knowing the fast track approaches while execution - your number one priority is always safety!

You are responsible for:
  • Project execution; start from contract signing until handover to employer which includes engineering, manufacturing, logistics, installation and commissioning.
  • HSE (health, safety and environment) management for the complete project, with main focus on site activities.
  • Proactively lead changes in project scope to improve success and minimize risk to the customer and the company
  • Meet with clients to take detailed ordering briefs and clarify specific requirements for the contracted scope of the project(s).
  • Effectively communicate project expectations to team members in a timely and clear fashion.
  • Estimate the resources and participants needed to achieve project goals.
  • Develop and deliver progress reports, proposals, requirements documentation, and presentations.
  • Meet budgetary objectives and make adjustments to project constraints based on financial analysis.
  • Maintain the relationship with the client and all partners.
  • Perform risk management to minimize project risks.
  • Where required, negotiate with other department managers for the acquisition of required personnel from within the company.
  • Coach, mentor, encourage and supervise project team members and contractors, and influence them to take positive action and accountability for their assigned work.
  • Build, develop, and grow any business relationships vital to the success of the project.
