Experienced project manager, Berlin

Our Berlin office is looking for qualified and experienced architects for the role of project manager across diverse projects. Applicants should have several years of experience as project manager and/or as project architect and be able to imagine a cross-project leadership role in the company. We would like to address women in particular to apply for this position.

Under the term project management, we mean all activities that ensure that clearly defined framework conditions are in place for the current and future phases of a project. Early on in the project initiation process, project management plays a central role in the interaction between all parties involved in the project, in particular in direct contact with the client. Project management always acts proactively and with foresight towards the client and subcontractors, moderating the process. Internally, contract/project management together with the project architect and the design lead form a triad that sets the framework conditions and project objectives while evaluating and resolving conflicting goals in the interest of the project's success and the needs of the company and the project teams.

The focus of responsibility for all appointed design stages is as follows:
— Preparation and negotiation of fee proposals, contracts, supplementary fee proposals
— Engagement and supervision of subcontractors
— Fees and resources
— Project structure
— Project controlling
— Crisis management

— Entrepreneurial energy / commitment
— Business acumen in negotiating fees
— Degree in architecture or a directly related discipline
— Solid work experience, in particular as project manager and/or project architect in Germany and ideally also internationally
— Experience with complex projects as well as projects with a budget of > net 150 Million €
Understanding of the requirements of a good process culture and high quality results both in the design as well as in the realisation
— Sense for design quality and in particular for setting the course in the planning process in terms of concept
— Constructive expertise
— Knowledge of legal framework
— Leadership, communication skills, persuasiveness
— Structured working methods, analytical thinking and ability to prioritise
— Strategic and result-driven thinking
— Team-player
— Humour and cool-headedness
— Proficiency in MS-Office and MS-Project
— Good knowledge of planning, ideally with 3D-CAD and BIM
— Fluency in German
— Good written and spoken English

You can expect projects with robust architectural concepts and a high level of quality in design and execution, diverse and exciting tasks, committed project teams and a motivating collaboration with staff in a collegially managed company on our campus in the centre of Berlin.
