Launch Manager, Supply Chain


Humlebæk, DK

Job Family:  Supply & Logistics
Country/Region:  Denmark
Launch Manager, Supply Chain 

Would you like to help orchestrate the global launch of new products? And are you motivated by the opportunity to follow the products from early development all the way to market?

Then this is your chance to make a real impact for people with intimate health care needs in a position with professional challenges that are hard to find other places. 

“As a launch manager at Coloplast, you get to follow new products all the way through the supply chain as you gain insights and make an impact across our global organisation,” says Dan Dahl Pedersen, Head of Supply Chain Launch, Global Supply Chain.*

Launch products that make a difference for our users
You will find yourself in the middle of a web of stakeholders working towards launching new Chronic Care and Wound Care products. Here, you pull the strings in order to ensure that we are on track, gathering information from colleagues in other departments to ensure a successful launch. 

Managing multiple projects from early stages through to delivery and aftercare, you:
•    Build and execute a project plan for Supply Chain Management, ensuring that we reach project milestones and launch on time
•    Produce launch scenarios in collaboration with other departments and ensure alignment with the rest of the organisation 
•    Are responsible for securing project delivery and delivery performance of newly launched items – through both your own deliverables/actions and other teams
•    Make sure systems, such as planning, base data and distribution, are ready for launch 
•    Coordinate activities at our production sites and flag supply chain risks to ensure timely launch 

”Your personality is so important in this position. On the one hand, you need to have an analytical mindset. And on the other, we are also looking for someone with an innate curiosity who thrives in a position where reaching out and talking to colleagues is second nature,” Dan explains. 

A holistic business understanding is key
Most importantly, you have the ability to view, assess and understand a project from 360 degrees, taking into account commercial as well as supply chain angles. This also means that you have a real interest in and talent for working cross-functionally and can take in a broad range of input from stakeholders across the business. 

Furthermore, we expect you to not be scared of taking on a large responsibility, and you can make an independent decision and stick to it, though you also know your limitations and are not afraid to voice them. 

Also, we imagine that you:
•    Have a supply chain background and education – perhaps a degree within engineering
•    Have 5+ years of experience, either in the supply chain or as a project manager
•    Have a holistic business understanding and a good conception of production processes
•    Are fluent in written and spoken English

Join our highly experienced Launch department 
As part of Launch Management, you join a team of 6 skilled colleagues, responsible for supply chain activities related to bringing new and innovative products to market. We are eager to share our knowledge to help you ease into the position.
