Novafos / Full time

Project Manager for Kagsåparken’s Rainwater Project

At Novafos, we have ambitions to be a sustainable utility company, and we strive to be at the forefront when it comes to developing green and innovative solutions that make a difference in our daily lives and the environment.
We are therefore seeking a passionate project manager to join Novafos’ key team on the Kagsåparken Rainwater Project, which is a groundbreaking collaborative project between Gladsaxe Municipality, Herlev Municipality, Harrestrup Å Collaboration, HOFOR, and Novafos.

Important Climate Protection

The project aims to address the challenges surrounding Kagsåparken, which suffers from flooding during heavy rainfall. The complex situation requires an ambitious approach, and therefore, a 4-year project with an impressive budget has been initiated.
Kagsåparken is to undergo extensive transformation and be converted into a rainwater park with a capacity of 100,000 m3 of rainwater. The purpose is to reduce flooding, improve water quality, and create new recreational experiences.

Your new job as a project manager

As a project manager with us, you will work on tasks aimed at implementing various solutions for rainwater and wastewater management, as well as contributing to a significant reduction in the overflows that currently occur in the area. You will handle complex project processes and collaborate with various stakeholders simultaneously.

Additionally, you will experience:

  • A unique role in the collaborative project, as well as responsibility for the effective implementation of all project elements
  • Close collaboration with consultants, contractors, residents, and our other project managers, which is essential for achieving sustainable results

Your profile

For this exciting position, we value collaboration, positivity, engagement, and strong communication skills highly. You have experience in project management, climate adaptation, and technical infrastructure projects. We will thoroughly introduce you to your new tasks, but it is important that you can draw on your experiences from a position in a similar field. That means:

  • You are an experienced project manager from either a consultancy, municipality, or utility company
  • You have knowledge of drainage technology and experience with construction management and supervision.

We look forward to welcoming you

You will become part of a project team with committed and helpful colleagues, and you will have close dialogue with our operations department, where we value good communication and interdisciplinary collaboration.
It is important to us that you enjoy your work and have exciting and developmental tasks, but we also place great emphasis on achieving a balance between work and leisure time. With us, you will have flexible working hours, and you can work from home a few days a week.

Practical details

Your workplace will be at Blokken 9 in Birkerød, and since you will regularly be out on the project, we expect you to have a driver’s license for a car. Salary according to the applicable KL collective agreement and qualifications – we provide paid lunch breaks. In the basement, we have a fitness room, bicycle parking, and changing rooms. You can also charge your electric car at work.
We must receive your application no later than February 21, 2024.
