Are you the person to take the lead on our exciting journey to develop our Corporate Projects department and improve both the speed and impact of strategic projects?

Meet Lars O. Sunesen, Senior Vice President of FOSS and one of the key architects behind your position:

This is a truly unique chance for you to use your knowledge and experiences to make a real difference and raise the bar for how effectively and smooth internal projects can proceed.

Welcome to FOSS – a technological powerhouse

At our Innovation Center in Hillerød, we have united some of the greatest minds from a multitude of professions. This is where we discover new ways of improving global food quality through our cutting-edge analytical instruments.

Here, you will join Corporate Projects, our newly established department aimed at professionalizing and aligning how we will run our strategic projects. You will be the first person in the team, and as your first assignment, you will hire an additional project manager to help you achieve our ambitious goals.


Create the golden standard for cross-collaboration projects

As Head of Corporate Projects, exciting challenges lie ahead as you will define how we drive strategic projects as effectively and successfully as possible. Working closely with your colleague and teammates, you will:

  • Take the lead on 2 mid to high level corporate projects defined by Corporate Management
  • Monitor and provide support on 10 defined projects defined by Corporate Management
  • Make monthly project portfolio updates to Corporate Management
  • Facilitate prioritization of project portfolio by Corporate Management
  • Serve as a mentor to develop the project management skills in the organization

Looking a couple of years into the future, you will have a clear scope on all corporate projects, their values and costs backed up by sound business cases.” – Lars

You have a big job ahead of you, so naturally we have made it easy for you to drive the change and make results.

You are going to be working on both the strategic projects and the strategy. You will get the resources and support of upper management to make a real difference.” – Lars


Ready for leadership

This position could be the chance for a head of PMO - or a step up for the seasoned junior profile to leave a mark in an international business.” – Lars

You are ready to face this challenge head on and are excited about the opportunity to make your own set-up. To succeed, you will need to

  • Bring extraordinary collaboration and communicationg skills
  • Be as comfortable advising top management as you are advising project managers, and
  • Have a strong execution mindset and a strong track record of getting projects done.

We imagine that you:

  • Have extensive experience as a project manager, preferably from a PMO or consultancy firm
  • Know the ups and downs in a high-tech company
  • Might even have been on this sort of journey already
