If so, then you may be the perfect candidate for the role of Manufacturing IT/Operating Technology (OT) Specialist at Coloplast.


Become part of a journey 
In Coloplast, we have recently launched a new 3-year plan for our Global Operations function. A key theme in the new plan is “standardised and digital”, and our ambition is to develop a standardised and digitised manufacturing system over the coming years. Historically, Coloplast has embraced site specific solutions, but we have now decided that it is time to embark on the exiting standardisation and digitalisation journey in the Global Operations function. 


Join our skilled Digitalisation team 
At our HQ in Humlebæk, you will join 28 experienced and engaged colleagues in the Standardisation, Digitalisation, and Project Management function. Here, you will become part of the Digitalisation team together with 8 other colleagues. The scope of the Digitalisation team is global, and we are working closely with the IT organization and various teams at our manufacturing sites in China, Hungary, Costa Rica and soon Portugal. The team’s focus is on manufacturing executing system applications and the interfaces to both enterprise systems and to the PLCs. Keywords for our focus in the team are continuous improvements, security, adherence to our global policies, reusability and scalability of our deliverables and solutions.

  3. Finally, IT security is key for us, and we are working on implementing the new NIS2 directive (e.g., risk assessments, asset management system implementation in the OT environment, etc.). You will also be responsible for a subset of these activities.
