Client Director within Project Management at Mannaz A/S

Do you have the qualifications to act as a trusted advisor to some of the world’s leading companies and enable them to unlock the full potential of their project management and ‘execution muscles’?

Then you may be the client director we are looking for.

At Mannaz, we are experiencing rapid growth in the demand for our services within project and change management and we are expanding our international consultancy. We are looking for a Client Director to join our Copenhagen, Aarhus, London or Malmo office. As we are working with some of the world’s leading companies, we are looking for a senior-level consultant with a proven track record of developing client relationships, winning business, and designing and facilitating highly value-adding programmes within project and change management.

You will be responsible for growing our market share within project management development by attracting new international clients while managing and developing a portfolio of existing global clients. Besides account management and new business development, the role includes a combination of facilitation of advanced development programmes, instructional design and consultancy. It is crucial that you have the ability to understand the client’s business and challenges for you to propose the best solution.

Deliveries will be done both using virtual tools such as MS Teams, Zoom etc. from Mannaz’s updated facilities, or on-site as required. Since Mannaz focuses on global businesses with cross-border activities you have to expect to be travelling up to 30-50 days a year.

If you are passionate about inspiring large, international organisations to develop their project management capabilities for the benefit of individuals, companies and society, then this is a great opportunity for you to be challenged.

Key tasks include

  • Managing client accounts as a true value-adding business partner
  • Preparation of and writing proposals as well as presentations for both existing clients and prospects
  • Designing and delivering bespoke project management development solutions and consulting assignments with leading, global organisations
  • Speaking and networking at conferences
  • Delivering and facilitating programmes/workshops, virtual sessions or face-to-face interventions
  • Advising clients on strategic and tactical issues within project management and leadership

The position reports to our VP of Project and Programme Management based in Copenhagen. The team is currently ca. 25 people including our associates.

  • Experience in managing bid and presentation teams
  • At least 10 years of experience as a Project or Programme Manager on complex projects
  • Track record of selling complex consultancy solutions in the human capital space
  • Fluent in English – working knowledge of other European languages would be an advantage
  • An internationally recognized, current Project Management certification. PMI-PMP is preferred, but Prince2 or IPMA would also be relevant
  • A relevant master's degree – such as a business or engineering

Your personal skills

  • Passion for people and project management
  • Excellent organisational skills, self-motivated but able to work as part of an entrepreneurial team
  • Sophisticated operator able to build coalitions of support within organisations
  • Energetic and self-driven in order to proactively “find more, win more and grow more” clients.

You will be part of an attractive business

As a Mannaz employee, you will be supported by a strong international organisation. Our offerings are of the highest quality and deliver real impact. You will join a team of professional and committed colleagues and an organisation with some of the world’s leading competence development portfolios. Your place of work will be in either our Copenhagen or Aarhus office.
