Our client is recruiting for a Project Management Business Partner (PMBP) who is required for Project Management support activities to the ACF and Borates Free projects. The duration of the PM support is estimated to be several years since many of the Work Packages will continue to 2020 and beyond. The PMBP is accountable to the project leader and a source of support to all project stakeholders.

The supported managers are in charge of the "Companies Chromate Free" (ACF), and "Borates Free" projects, which aim to deliver compliance to REACH regulations for Chromate/Borate products and processes, and to mitigate the associated risk of business disruption.

In general, the Engineering functions lead the replacement product development, the Manufacturing functions lead the Plant implementation, and the Procurement functions lead the supply chain implementation, with overall lead from the Programme function (BXIM).

The ACF and Borates-Free projects belong to the companies Substances Environmental Roadmap portfolio. The development phase of a WP follows a TRL milestone approach, and the implementation phase follows a tailored milestone process.
