Acquisition based on this advertisement is not appreciated. We usually fill the vacancies ourselves and in exceptional cases we work with preferred suppliers.

As a Project Manager Service at EuroSort, you are responsible for the technical realisation and execution of service projects at (international) customers. The aim of these service projects is to advise customers on refurbishing, relocating or optimising their existing sorting system. It is your job, in cooperation with your team and in contact with the customer, to execute matters efficiently, on time and, above all, according to the customer's expectations.

You specify customer requirements and convert this into a requirements package for production, consisting of, for example, drawings and technical and functional specifications. You will determine the project planning in consultation with the Work Planner, the Planner and the suppliers and you will monitor the budget and the post-calculation margin. You are also responsible for the CE risk analyses of projects and drawing up the health and safety plans for the work on-site. In this way, you ensure the delivery of the overall project to the customer. You are part of the Service Project Team, which has yet to be further assembled, but will consist of an Electrical Engineer, a Mechanical Engineer and a Planner.

Over time, you will manage this team. Within the team, you will ensure uniform working methods and provide input for process improvements within the department. You will report to the Manager Service & Support.

If you enjoy coordinating projects from A to Z and find it challenging to deal with unexpected developments in the process, then this is a job for you.

Working week

Project Manager Service

On an enjoyable working day, you speak to a client who is very satisfied with a completed project. You also have a productive team meeting where together you arrive at a new solution for a client.

On a less enjoyable day, a project does not go according to plan and you have to do a lot of internal consultations to still achieve the set goals.

Firsthand experience

You notice that the planning of one of the projects is coming under pressure. What do you do?

It may occur that a project is delayed, for instance, due to staff downtime or unavailability of materials. In such a case, you will have to take the initiative to get work done anyway, preferably without inconveniencing the customer. You will discuss internally the possibility of shifting personnel or using materials from a less urgent project, for example. If this is not possible, you communicate clearly with the customer about the delay and the adjusted planning.


EuroSort considers personal development very important. Consequently, there are many opportunities to attend training, education and courses. EuroSort is currently developing a training policy to make this more concrete.

Marco Vonk - Purchaser

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I started in 2011 as an Engineer at EuroSort. In addition, I did project-related purchases. Due to the dynamic growth of EuroSort, I have gradually started to concentrate and professionalize myself more in the field of purchasing. Partly because the organization feels great, from which we get satisfaction together, this is a huge stimulus to develop myself further and to keep the enthusiasm high. This is an advantage of EuroSort for me!
