The vision of VMS Group is to be the internationally preferred partner of superior maritime solutions. We are expanding rapidly and to keep up with the market demands and achieve our strategic objectives, we are looking for a project manager for our high-speed team to strengthen our business.

Our project managers are part of our international set-up and play a key role in the execution of projects.

Our project managers manage, delegate and draw up guidelines on each project for our service engineers. They also invoice, write reports for the customer and follow up internally in relation to orders and quotes.

You must be highly flexible in terms of working hours, since overtime, evening and weekend work will occur. Service engineers working in the field will contact you occasionally by phone – even outside standard working hours. 10-20 travel days per year must be expected.

Your professional qualifications:

  • A technical engineer education focusing on high-speed diesel engines such as Caterpillar, Scania, Volvo Penta and Cummins.
  • +5 years’ practical experience in these diesel engines, mechanically and/or the engine software.
  • Experienced project manager, foreman, supervisor or the like.
  • You speak and write English fluently.
  • You work well in stressful situations and you can make rapid decisions.
  • You are a clever businessman who finds the right solution for both the customer and VMS Group.

  • You communicate clearly and in an open way.
  • You are attentive to detail, systematic and structured.
  • You can deliver the final product to the full satisfaction of the customer, supplier and employees.
  • You are reliable and strive to contribute to the continuous growth of the company.


Your key to success:
Following projects from the beginning till the end and thus realizing budgets will be your key success factor.

We offer:

  • A demanding yet attractive position in an exciting company with global ambitions, orderly conditions and motivated, talented colleagues.
  • Personal and professional development opportunities in a company with an informal work environment.

Salary and conditions of employment are negotiated according to qualifications. The job is based in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
