It's Saturday afternoon and you're busy with the barbecue. Together with your old school friends, you plan this fun gathering every summer. How lucky you are with the beautiful weather! It's been almost a year since you started at Kadans Science Partner. Time flew by and you've had so many experiences. You tell the story proudly about your new job as Project Manager and your contribution to the realization of state-of-the-art buildings, and quickly show some pictures. You are proud and happy that you made the switch, because at Kadans you experience freedom and room for ideas. What a team you have behind you, both in Belgium and in the Netherlands - where the head office is located. It feels like one big family with one common goal: to further develop Kadans.

Will you be our new colleague in our Belgian team? We're looking for someone who can guide our most challenging projects from start to finish.

Innovate with us
Knowledge-intensive organisations have the potential to change the world. And when you change the world, you need more than a standard work environment. Everything we do at Kadans is focused on stimulating and supporting innovation: the spaces we design, the support we offer, the community we bring together. It's innovation from a solid foundation. State-of-the-art buildings, meeting the individual business needs of our tenants. Experienced teams, allowing them to focus on what they do best. And an international community that can help take their business to the next level. Welcome to Kadans Science Partner. We build innovation.

What is your working day like?
It is Monday morning and you are on your way to a meeting on location. You drive onto the site and see the beautiful building you have been involved with from the very beginning. You have been working on this project for six months and today the rooms are being delivered where the first tenants will soon be welcomed. You are impressed with the final result and walk around the building with a sense of pride. Because you have been involved from the very beginning, this feels like the crowning glory of your work. On the way to a new appointment, you share your experiences with your colleagues, because as a team you have achieved this feat together. You will soon be toasting this at the opening of the building, but for now you have to move on to a new appointment.

What else will your job entail?
As a Project Manager, you are one of the most important links in our company. You supervise and manage all aspects of the project management of our portfolio. This consists of a mix of laboratory, office and private site infrastructure. You will ensure that our properties are designed in accordance with contractual and market requirements, listening to the client and responding to the technical needs of our tenants. As a Project Manager, you will manage contractors, monitor the budget and carry out internal reporting. You also manage the technical upgrades and modifications.

What are you aiming for?
For you, the customer is the most important. You ensure that our tenants can work with pleasure in the properties in our portfolio. You think along with them at the start of the project and feel responsible for leading this project to a successful conclusion. As Project Manager, you make an important contribution to the growth objective by realising housing. From the initiation phase up to and including the delivery and aftercare.
