Manager Operations at 360°KAS

Context for this position 
Although having been active for over 50 years as a specialized independent systems integrator for high end sampling and analyzer systems, 360°KAS can also be considered a ‘new’ company that has reinvented itself following a change of ownership in 2015. Thanks to a focused strategy we are now rapidly growing.
To support and sustain this growth we are looking for a results driven, resourceful and flexible Manager Operations to join our management team.

Role within the team
As a member of the Management Team you will be responsible for the full breadth of operational of 360°KAS including project management, engineering, procurement, construction and project administration for the full range of our portfolio: analyzer systems, (LNG) sampling systems, pilot plants and desuperheaters.
You will be an inspirational leader that further builds, develops and further strengthens our operational team. You will have strong analytical skills and be able to think and act strategically with a long term horizon without getting lost in the demanding ‘day-to-day’ hustle and bustle, but at the same time also demonstrate a pragmatic and ‘hands on’ attitude that is required in a dynamic, growing and changing organization.

Engineering Trust
Our clients are typically demanding international EPC’s and end users of refineries, chemical plants and R&D centers. Reliable, quality engineering and project delivery are essential to our clients’ and our success. You need to be able to leverage your experience, knowledge and insights whilst clearly understanding not only our own but also our client’s challenges, expectations and requirements.
360°KAS office, assembly and testing hall is currently located in Goes, but during 2018 we intend to move to the South Rotterdam area.

  • Strong commercial affinity, demonstrated ability to constructively negotiate with customers, partners, suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English and Dutch.
