Published: July 10, 2018
Would you like to join one of the main innovators in the fast-moving MedTech industry? And are you ready to lead global cross-functional projects and organisational change?

As a project manager in our Corporate Project Management office, you will build a vast network and create highly visible results. Join us to take your career to the next level in a global organisation that is ready to support your professional development.

GN Hearing is a market and innovation leader. We transform lives through the power of sound: Smart Hearing aids that enhances the lives of people with hearing loss. GN Hearing has delivered strong growth and profitability over the past 7 years, driven by industry-leading innovation.

Drive organisational change through delivery of cross-functional projects
At our HQ in Ballerup near Copenhagen, you will join the GN Hearing Corporate PMO, which supports GN Hearing management in driving strategic cross-functional projects.

In the role of project manager, you are responsible for managing projects from initiation through to implementation to drive organisational change forward. To do so, you interact with all levels in the organisation, from top management to local staff across countries and functions, and you will report directly to the Head of Corporate PMO.

In more detail, you:

• Drive organizational improvement projects and programmes across GN Hearing
• Lead organisational change management processes connected to project delivery
• Continuously support in establishing and managing key standards, methodologies and processes falling under the departments area of responsibility (project- and change management as well as process optimisation)
• Develop and facilitate training in the above standards, methods and processes and coach local project managers who run cross-functional transformation projects

As you will support global projects, you can expect up to 30 days of international travel per year – and even more if you are interested.

Solid project and change management skills
To succeed in this role, you need a passion for transforming organisations coupled with a solid background in operational improvement and project management. You are highly ambitious self-starter, and your excellent communication and people skills enable you to work with people at all organisational levels. Similarly, you are a good facilitator and a proactive organiser, and you know how to lead and influence without formal authority.

We imagine that you have:

• An M.Sc. with top 10% results – e.g. in business, engineering, economics or finance
• 6+ years of experience in either management consulting or in an internal strategy function
• Documented experience with project management in a global organisation – certification in PMI PMP or similar is required
• Additionally, practical experience from either process optimisation, business design, and/or finance is preferred
• The ability to communicate issues and your recommendations clearly across organisational levels
• Solid Excel and PowerPoint skills and fluent English skills
