ANNAX Group is the newest addition to the Wabtec / Faiveley Transport Family. With its innovative product portfolio and unique market offering, ANNAX is a vital part of our Product Line PAPIS / CCTV.
As we are leveraging our global sales force we create new opportunities and are therefore looking for a Project Manager PAPIS / CCTV to enable to deliver to our promise to the market and our customers.
You will be able to rely on established Project Management Methods, while this role gives you the opportunity to innovate and trailblaze in your own field of responsibility.
When you are an experienced Project Manager we are not telling you anything new about the Job Requirements. However, we want to make sure that you can make the right decision if this opportunity is calling your name loudly enough to raise your hand and start a conversation with us.
If it is not this role, it might be some other role in the future.
Let us be honest. Project Management can be the most rewarding role, but it can be also very stressful at times. In the value creation for our customers and our company you are in the middle between the Sales Process and Customer Satisfaction.
You need to be able to understand more than one view of a project, the commercial sense, the production process and the customer view.
Therefore you have to be a mature and balanced personality with the knowledge base to understand the different views.
You will work together with our Sales Force to understand the customer demands, tender process and price creation. Also you understand the contractual process and the related liabilities.
Therefore you should have an understanding of Sales, Finance and Legal without being an expert.
Industry Projects usually are having fewer projects, but higher complexity. Quite often they are specified to the customer needs and demands.
Our Projects are supported by an excellent Project Engineering Team and produced by highly skilled manufacturing staff. However, each project is a triangle of time, quality and costs.
You are responsible to engage the teams in achieving all three sides of that triangle at the same time. Hence you are the strong force behind every successful project.
We hope that you are saying that you are not looking for Customer Satisfaction, but Customer Delight. However, your role is so interesting because you have all involved parties in view and when a project is delivered according to contract in time, quality and cost, we would say you did a really good job.
Projects would not be Projects if they would not have their own rules. Therefore you need to be able to create get-well-
plans for projects which run outside of your project boundaries. At that time you will be able to show your ability to rally up the teams behind you and communicate with impact.
As a person you love to create structure and clarity within demanding projects, so you are in yourself someone who likes to think as Sherlock Holmes, observing, probing and resognising patterns.
In the outside world you have an ability to bring teams together in high pressure situation, pick people up in times of frustration and make them give their best for the customer.
With our customers and managing team you are pragmatic, honest and professional in your communication.
You will be located in ANNAX GmbH, but you will have international exchange, so you need speak English and German on a level where you feel comfortable to run projects on high visibility.
Brunnthal is south of Munich and as close to one of the most vibrant cities in Germany, as well as being close to the beautiful nature of the Alps.
As this role is new we can only make an assumption that you are probably travelling up to 30% of your time due to the international product line and multi-
side production. We enable Home Office opportunities in case that this is effectively organised in the idea of one day per week .
Your career progression could be locally or internationally, dependent on your interests. People at ANNAX are team orientated and grounded.
We are interested in you, so please send us your meaningful CV and a couple of words what you liked about the description of the role.
