General Manager (f/m/d) Harbour

Stock Market company

Our client is a European, stock listed company, within the metal industry. Because of the company’s logistical requirements and their need to have guaranteed access to raw materials, they own and operate their own harbour facility in northern Germany. Since the early 1980s, the port handling plants of the harbour were modernized and automated. That level of automation allowed the amount of goods being handled to double while the number of employees remained the same.

The previous General Manager came from within the process automation department of the parent company and they developed the modernization of the harbour’s equipment based on his expertise. Using laser, GPS and radio controlled technology, they are able to take care of unloading, carriage and transportation of the goods.

The level of automation at this harbour makes it a world-leading facility.

The successful candidate will oversee the technical progress of the facility, optimize the maintenance and plan extensions. Another important task for this position is to ensure a positive relationship with the authorities, regulators and politicians. Knowledge of port environments is desirable but not crucial.

Systems Engineer (f/m/d) power electronics

OEM

Our client is a German automaker with a well revered international reputation. Due to the current changes within the automotive sector which are specifically focused on e-mobility, our client decided to enlarge its’ Research and Development department to meet the needs of the market.

The dependency on automotive suppliers in the field of power electronics and battery management is something our client wants to limit in the not too distant future. To gain more know-how in this sector it is imperative to build up an in-house department with highly trained specialists.

The principal task of power electronics is the control and conversion of electric power. The effectiveness of electric cars is based on efficient power electronics units. Apart from e-mobility it is also a basic component in the power generation sector (especially wind and solar power), in modern production lines (robotics and industry 4.0) and in power transmission. Next to classic street used BEV you can find electric drives in Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV´s), in material handling equipment and in small vehicles (Golf carts and Post cars).

As an OEM our client works closely with automotive suppliers and engineering service companies which has led to a high demand for personnel that are able to track all projects both internally and externally. For this project we were mandated to search for system engineers.
