I have worked as an automation project manager for two years. Before being hired, I was trained by the group during a work-study placement as part of my Master II in Electrical Engineering and Industrial IT. Things have moved on very quickly since my graduation. I have already changed a lot! My job involves planning, architecture, machine functional analysis, program design, testing, commissioning and maintenance. I manage projects from A to Z in the fields of electrical engineering, automation, digital control, drives, motion and robotics. On average, I spend 60% of my working time at the agency and 40% on site.
To be a good project manager, you have to be independent and versatile, as we don’t always work on the same brands or processes. No two projects are the same. Each is made up of new questions, new objectives and new contacts.
After my work-study program, I really wanted to stay at DV GROUP for various reasons, including the work environment, the way that people help each other out, the sense of team spirit, and the speed at which my skills have developed. During my training, my superiors quickly entrusted me with projects, including one I won’t forget: a €110,000 project to retrofit a solvent factory – my first. What a challenge, and what an opportunity!
