  • Support other project work streams (e.g. Product Management, Rollout, Computerized System Validation etc.) as per your skills and personal interests
  • Preparation and facilitation of project meetings, workshops and events

Ideally you already have previous project experience (e.g. during your studies) and experience in agile ways of working (e.g. Scrum). Short work experience, internships and studies abroad are an asset.

Moreover, you are

  • passionate about delivering value to others in the form of projects and have heard of waterfall, hybrid and agile before.
