PMO Director – make your mark on our R&D processes


Want to take up a brand new position, setting the strategic direction for how we carry out innovation projects? 


We already have a comprehensive product development model in place, but we need you and your PMO team to map out the processes and ensure that all stakeholders across R&D know their part.


“This is your chance to drive a very ambitious change management agenda with a highly committed team and a strong leadership mandate behind you,” says Senior Vice President, Global R&D, Anders Nørby.


Welcome to the heart of medical device innovation
In Coloplast, we deliver high-quality chronic care solutions for patients all over the world. And it all starts right here in our R&D organisation, employing approx. 400 people worldwide. This is where you will spearhead our PMO, supporting our 3 project management teams that carry new products to market every day. 


“With your role, we want to raise the bar for how we work and collaborate to deliver even better innovations that improve lives of people with intimate health care needs,” says Anders.


Elevate our PM capabilities and processes
You will become part of our management group, counting 3 VP’s and 4 directors, setting the agenda across R&D. Moreover, you will manage an experienced team of 3 PMO specialists and 1 senior project manager – all dedicated to supporting the implementation of your new initiatives.


As the new owner of our development model and related processes, your goal will be to drive improvements across the organisation, ensuring project execution agility and process efficiency. Therefore, your tasks will be to:


  • Set the strategic direction and develop project management capabilities across our PM function, including being responsible for project governance meetings
  • Optimise and define our development processes, especially to clarify responsibilities, dependencies and best practices across R&D 
  • Manage, mentor and motivate your team and individual team members
  • Drive positive change management to ensure that your initiatives are implemented successfully with all R&D stakeholders onboard


”You will have a high degree of freedom to shape how we execute projects in the future. The big challenge here is to make sure that simple and clear ways of working are embraced, understood and adopted by all our colleagues in the organisation,” Anders concludes. 


Engaging leader with product development experience

  • You have experience with product development projects from a complex R&D environment, preferably in the medical device industry or a similarly regulated industry
  • You have people management experience and know how to lead and engage people 
  • You have successful experience driving significant changes across a group of stakeholders
  • You communicate effortlessly in English in both speech and writing


If you would like to know more about the position, please call Senior Vice President, Global R&D, Anders Nørby on +45 4911 1563. We will take candidates into the recruitment process continuously, so do not hesitate to apply. This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.




Pursuing an ambitious growth agenda, Coloplast develops and markets products and services that make life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs. Employing about 12.000 people and with products available in more than 143 countries, we are one of the world´s leading medical device companies. We are constantly growing our business and always looking for new ways to move forward – we explore, learn and look for new ways of doing things.


Coloplast is committed to being an inclusive organization, where people bring their differences to work each day, fulfil their potential and have a strong sense of belonging because – and not despite – of their differences. We therefore encourage all qualified candidates to apply regardless of gender, age, race, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious belief or physical ability.
