AFRY offers services in technology, design, digitization and consulting. We are dedicated experts in industry, energy and infrastructure, who create value for future generations. AFRY has a global reach with deep roots in the Nordics. Together, we accelerate the transition to a more sustainable society.

Job description

Our customer base is expanding and strives to deepen the cooperation with us, which means that we are in an exciting growth phase in the energy sector with a focus on hydropower and in collaboration with other renewable energy and production sources within the Energy Division. To meet the demand, we are now looking for a dynamic and committed project manager for our offices in Östersund, Sundsvall, Umeå, Skellefteå and Luleå. With us, you become part of a forward-looking organization that is characterized by constant development!

In the role, you will be responsible for running your own projects. You will have plenty of opportunities to influence and make a difference both in the projects and in the daily operations. In addition, you get the chance to work with business development and share your perspectives.

Specific work tasks may also be available for you with a focus on inspection and assessment of construction works where you also have the opportunity to design action proposals and repair plans, meritorious if you master advanced calculations in the construction industry. We expect you to run your projects with a focus on goals and results while effectively collaborating with both internal and external actors. It requires a structured work method where you feel confident in your decisions.

It requires a methodical approach where you have full confidence in your decisions. In addition, you will participate in the contracting process and support construction site follow-up. An essential task in the role is to actively market and promote our own expertise, the section's competence and our company's offerings.

We at AFRY know that our employees are our main asset – it is their competence and commitment that make our projects successful.

Our section consists of experienced and competent project managers, construction managers and investigators/constructors who together form a strong team with broad expertise in the field. We value mentoring and see it as an important part of our section's continuous development. As a project manager, you will be a key person who, together with other areas within AFRY, runs successful projects and contributes to our continued growth and success.

Requirements specification

Who are you?

To succeed in this role, an engineering or civil engineering degree is an invaluable asset.

With years of successful experience managing large civil engineering projects, your ability to navigate the industry and understand its unique challenges is critical. We would like for you to have experience in construction environment coordination and negotiation as well as handling agreements/contracts.

We are looking for a forward-looking leader with a will to coach and inspire our younger talents. Not only are you skilled at creating and maintaining strong relationships, both internally and externally, but you are also a driven business person with a self-motivated approach to work. The borderland between technology, business and leadership is your natural environment. With your ability to communicate fluently in both Swedish and English, you will take on the challenges without any problems, and you also have your driver's license at the ready.
