Senior Project Manager / (warehouse) Engineering Consultant – The Netherlands

Edwin Tuyn | 24 December 2020

Introduction

With business in Europe growing, St. Onge is currently looking for a new Senior Project Manager / (warehouse) Engineering Consultant to strengthen their European team. In this position you will be leading various European logistics consulting, engineering and implementation projects throughout Europe.

For larger projects that require detailed analysis or engineering you will be supported by their engineers from their office in the U.S. Audit and smaller consulting assignments you will execute fully yourself. You will also be responsible for the follow up of commercial leads and the acquisition of new projects.

However, in an organization such as St. Onge, leaders are expected to show flexibility in their approach to work very hands on and be willing to undertake other tasks and missions that are reasonably allocated to them, but which are not part of their regular job description. Roll up the sleeves and make it happen yourself.

In this position you will report directly to the Director European Operations and work closely with your colleagues in Europe and the US.
