Vacancy

As a Project Manager at IMS, you are responsible for realizing high-tech production solutions for clients. Together with your team, you are accountable for the successful execution of projects, ensuring efficient project implementation in accordance with the quality system.

You work on multiple projects simultaneously, varying in size and budget. For larger projects, your focus is primarily on one project. For smaller projects, you typically manage multiple projects at the same time. On average, you work on three to four projects concurrently, with an average duration of about a year.

The key tasks within the projects include monitoring the scope, keeping track of specifications, deliverables, planning and budgeting, and communicating with the client. You provide daily leadership to the project teams, consisting of at least one Project Manager, a Mechanical Lead Engineer, a Control Lead Engineer, and a Builder. Together with your team, you collaborate closely with partners and suppliers to ensure that production solutions are delivered according to the customer's requirements.

If you enjoy working with complex high-tech machines and find it challenging to brainstorm creative solutions with your team, then this is the job for you.

Working week

Projectmanager

On an enjoyable day, you enjoy the success of a successful design review with a satisfied client, where the technical solution meets the specifications and stays within the allocated budget. You witness the client's happiness with the outcome.

On a less enjoyable day, there are setbacks in the project progress, which may result in budget overruns or schedule delays. The client is unhappy with these issues, requiring you to demonstrate patience and persuasive skills.

Firsthand experience

After a customer visit, it appears that there are specification changes, additional requests, and/or expectations. What do you do?

Following a customer visit where additional requests and expectations are raised, you discuss these within the Project Team and the Sales Department. As a Project Manager, it is your responsibility to manage the expectations within the project scope. If necessary, you initiate a change request discussion to successfully accommodate the new requirements while ensuring the project remains manageable from a technical and financial standpoint. In some cases, a new proposal or quote may be prepared, depending on the impact on the schedule, finances, and technology.

Growth

The growth path within IMS is not fixed. You will be given the opportunity and room for personal and professional growth, for example by following training courses. IMS makes a budget and set time available for this. In addition, initiative and entrepreneurship are highly valued within IMS.

Colleagues

Daniël (32) - Mechanical Engineering

Why did you decide to work for this company?
At IMS you work for a lot of types of clients, although you also go into depth. That attracted me more than going for one niche in mechanical engineering. Moreover, we develop our machines ourselves from start to finish. It is also very nice to see that something, which you have thought up and calculated yourself, really works.

What did you study?
Master Mechanical Engineering at University of Twente.

What do you do in your spare time?
Producing music

Bart Oude Lohuis (36) - Lead Engineer (Mechanical Engineering)

Why did you decide to work for this company?
At IMS you are involved in the development and realization of a machine from the beginning to the end. What you come up with and design, is in front of you a few weeks later and needs to be tested. There is also a lot of variety in the projects: from machines for automotive products to components for smartphones and medical implants. At IMS it will all pass by!

What was your previous job?
Mechanical Engineer at Viro

What do you do in your spare time?
Mountainbiking and running

What do you do in your spare time?
Soccer and mountainbiking

Dennis Meijerink (29) - Controls Engineer
