AkzoNobel's Specialty Chemicals (SC) business provides a wide range of high quality and sustainable ingredients that are integral to numerous key industrial processes worldwide.

SC is a leading producer of Ethylene and Sulfur Derivatives (ESD). In order to meet our growth ambitions ESD is investing in its assets globally.

The investments are part of the longer term strategic development plan for SC. Success will depend among other on the highest levels of HSE knowledge and project management expertise, as we seek to maintain our outstanding reputation in this area.

Within this context, your mission in this position is to assume overall responsibility for delivery of the technical parts of the investment project, starting from the pre-project completion.

Is this a challenge that matches your profile as an experienced and expert Project Manager with a deep background in Chemical Engineering? Have you acquired the skills necessary to coordinate and influence multiple stakeholders across a complex construction and engineering landscape? Can you apply and maintain the highest standards of proactive HSE within an environment where HSE is of the highest priority for all involved parties? Above all, can you make a real difference within our dynamic, multinational and multicultural business environment?

If you offer all this and more, we invite you to apply for the position of Investment Manager Titan.

The role and its responsibilities
This is a high profile position in which you perform wide-ranging project management responsibilities and deliver results in line with the agreed quality, budget and timeline.

Further, you define the site organization, including implementation (hiring and training including functional experts), and organize all required permits and the license to operate. You also decide in cooperation with the Steering Team on the involvement of Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management contractors, and you organize Steering Team meetings.

Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) is a key responsibility and you are responsible for HSE during construction, ensuring that HSE management systems are at required level from start-up and acting as the primary contact for corporate HSE.

As one of your tasks, you initiate Hazard Studies in the Commissioning and Start-up (CSU) phase. Following CSU you perform project evaluation, communicate findings and suggestions for improvement to the appropriate work processes.

On an ongoing basis you provide reports and status updates on HSE, planning, budget and quality, and you organize assurance reviews and tollgate meetings. You also ensure that operating instructions, maintenance plans and procedures are prepared and that trainings are given and that all project work is properly documented.
