As an IT Project Manager (IT-PM), you run complex IT projects across ALK – both locally and internationally. You join projects from the very beginning – from initial scoping, cost, and benefit mapping - to implementation and realization, always keeping the overall business objectives in mind.
Your first projects will be in the R&D area where you will drive modernization of several critical systems. Since ALK has a very busy project portfolio there will be opportunities to work in all parts of the ALK organization – always with the focus on running great IT-projects that will enable ALK to continue to grow.
To succeed in this position it is key to have a strong IT-PM toolbox. Examples of such are:

- A structured approach to root-cause analysis and impact assessments
- Experience from driving projects in the pharma industry
- A proven track record of delivering projects on time and within the agreed budget and scope

- Coach other project managers, and others who need assistance regarding project management processes
- Establish and maintain standards and procedures for project execution, reporting and documentation
- Have excellent Excel and PowerPoint skills to facilitate crystal clear communication to stakeholders
Please note that having (hands-on) experience with SAFe is a plus, but not a must-have.
With your strong business acumen, you understand and translate business needs into viable IT solutions. Also, your strong stakeholder management skills allow you to communicate with both executives, IT experts and SME colleagues to get your projects successfully planned and implemented.
As a candidate for the role you:
- Bring a master’s degree, preferably within computer science, engineering or similar

If you can recognize yourself in the above, you just might be the candidate we are looking for – come join a Global IT organization in a company that is on an exciting change and growth journey with a fantastic purpose.
