Mr. Marine’s growth strategy includes organic growth and growth through acquisitions in new and existing business lines in international ports. The aim is to complete 2-3 acquisitions yearly. For the integration of the newly acquired companies, Mr. Marine wants to hire an IT Project Manager, who will be responsible for the implementation of our ERP system SAP B1 for each newly acquired company. On top of that, the IT Project Manager will be responsible for the realisation of projects that are part of our digitalisation roadmaps, such as the mobile field service app, CRM, the customer portal and the data warehouse.

The IT Project Manager will report to the COO and will work closely with the executive team consisting of the CEO, COO, 2 Technical Directors, the Operations Director, the Key Accounts Director and the HR Business Partner. He or she will also cooperate closely with the rest of the IT Team and with the team of the external SAP B1 implementation service provider that Mr. Marine is working with.

For each newly acquired company, the IT Project Manager will set up and manage the project to implement SAP B1. The IT Project Manager will monitor and report on progress against the plan and manage risks. The IT Project Manager is also responsible for the execution of part of the planned integration activities.

Experience with IT project management in general and specifically with ERP implementation are crucial to be successful in this position. A hands-on, execution-oriented mentality, stakeholder management skills and teamwork are also required to be successful in this position.
