As a Project Manager IT, you will be part of an enthusiastic and driven team of Project Managers that defines priorities across the various internal and external IT projects across the portfolio. You ensure a structured approach and are involved in every phase of the project. For this, you are in close contact with business, technical analysts and developers.

  • Starting from a need of the own business or the client you will draw up a project plan and assemble a project team. Within this project team, YOU take the lead!
  • You follow the project progress closely with regard to timing, scope and budget.
  • What if the project planning deviates? From a proactive coordination with your fellow project managers, you divide the available resources to avoid bottlenecks.
  • You report and communicate the project status to internal parties and customers on a continuous basis.

Based on the right priorities, you not only manage to juggle your projects, but, together with your fellow project managers, you also come to a global planning that knows no equal. You take the lead if necessary, without losing sight of the overall objectives. You achieve all this by continuously consulting with internal and external customers and with your IT colleagues.

You will be able to leave your unique mark in the multidisciplinary collaboration between our operations, our customers and our extensive IT department.
