About the job
Alfa Laval have a great ability to capture new business opportunities in new markets by identifying customer needs and then developing our separator and systems in order to meet those demands. At the moment Alfa Laval is investing heavily in development new generations of separator systems.
To speed up this development we have decided to substantially increased R&D budget with a large amount of new recruitments. This is the greatest investment in high speed separators in a century! We also need to work in a different way to deliver faster. The two main components in this are how we organize ourselves and how we focus on the tasks. We therefore create three strong programs with a great deal of autonomy, reporting to a high-level steering committee, together with dedicated resources from different line organizations.

  • Set forecast and budget for the total program
  • Follow up and drive progress together with the other project managers, in the total program
  • Prioritize resources usage within the program to achieve set milestones, deliverables and toll gates
  • Be manager over one or more highly skilled project manager
  • Run project(s) within the program themselves
You will report directly to the Head of Research & Development, and be a vital part of the R&D management team.
