We Offer
Maersk Line, the global containerised division of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, is dedicated to delivering the highest level of customer-focused and reliable ocean transportation services. Our vision, built from a strong heritage of uprightness, constant care, and innovation, has guided our business operations since the first Maersk Line vessel sailed in 1904. By remaining committed to that vision we have expanded our business to become the world’s largest ocean carrier. And we are consistently recognized as the most reliable container shipping company in the world. Maersk Line offers a competitive salary and good benefits package (details dependent on working location).

Maersk Line is a highly international and inspiring environment with an attractive value proposition for its employees. Our package consists of an externally benchmarked salary, pension scheme, 25 days holiday a year and a number of other attractive benefits.
Key Responsibilities
The role of the Senior Performance Manager is to identify, manage and/or steer performance improvements to the IT operating system, allowing it to perform optimally and to continuously improve and adapt to changes in the environment.

As this is a new role and the Maersk IT function is in the process of redesigning itself, it is expected that the Senior Performance Manager will find an ocean of improvement opportunities, and hence (s)he will be required to maintain an active improvement portfolio and to prioritize the improvement initiatives with discipline.

As such, the role will entail extensive investigation to identify the critical problems via constant interaction with key stakeholders (IT Leadership and their functional teams) and to develop recommendations on the critical improvements the IT function should set in motion in order to improve its operating performance. The improvement efforts will typically entail cross functional interaction both within IT and across other functions in the company (HR, Finance, Procurement, etc) and hence the role will be complex in terms of change management and stakeholder interaction.

You will run and steer other team members to work on improvement opportunities and projects to deliver results.

Lastly, the Senior Performance Manager will work on ad-hoc assignments in support of the IT Leadership when relevant and the circumstances of the moment require.
