What will you do

Project Management is involved from the very first phase of initiation. The triangle account management, system architect and project management is key in this phase. Where account management takes lead in the commercial interests and system architect takes care of the technical solution, your role as senior project manager is to develop a realistic plan and estimation to realise the solution. Do the requirements and expectations of the customers match our architects solution? Is our commitment realistic? What implications will our promises and commitments have for the remainder of the project and budget? You create the base for a successful execution of the project in this phase.

You start a new project team after this quotation phase has been finalized. This team combines knowledge from the entire NTS organization to gain the most optimal service to the customer. A typical project within NTS have a duration of about 6 months for a small project to more then 2 years for bigger, more complex product development projects. The project teams you work with consists of about 15 FTE multidisciplinary professionals. NTS has all aspects of delivery in the own organization, ranging from architecture to engineering and (small serial) production. Your lead reaches from initiation to hand over to Operations for volume production.

The project team sets up a project plan and defines reachable targets under your lead. You manage the process to meet the agreed targets (quality, budget, planning). It goes without saying that you strive for continuous improvement in project management and customer satisfaction!

Your projects end with a successful proto phase and passed 0-series, resulting in small volume production or a successful verification of a one off product. You hand-over the project to NTS' factories, guaranteeing a long relationship with the customer and NTS!

What do you bring to the table

You combine a strong personality with a thorough technical background, with more than 10 years of experience as a Project Manager. Let's start with your personality, the most important aspect at the end of the day. You are a true senior project manager: you get things done. By setting goals, securing progress, keeping an eye on budget, managing (and mitigating) risks and regular quality checks, you guarantee the progress of your projects. 

The art of managing stakeholders fits like a glove, because of your strong communicative skillset. These stakeholders are not only located at customers, the project team you manage benefits from your skillset too. Your calmness and overview allows you to manage several (complex) projects in parallel. Result is important, but the quality of the result is even more important. Being pragmatic and venturous brings you and your team the results you want!
