Are you perceived as a strong, dynamic, robust, and modern team captain with a deep passion for technology, business, and organizational development? Then you might be the one that we are looking for.

Right now, we are looking for a driven and talented Vice President, with a strong track record in leading both leaders and functions in times of development and transitions, to head our Radar Technology domain consisting of +75 highly skilled employees.

The Challenge and Opportunity
Terma A/S is an innovative Danish company delivering high-end niche products and provides mission-critical solutions in aerospace, defense and security that help protect people. We offer advanced technologies and services for a range of specific application areas – and our customers operate on land, at sea, in the air, or in space.

Our purpose is to secure people through advanced technology, one of these advanced key technologies being Radars and signal processing. Radar technology is one of Terma’s cornerstones in our current and future customer value creation, and we offer cutting-edge radar technology and capabilities. As our new Head of Radar, you will meet a company with numerous exciting application areas. Radars is a key value creator – when detecting drones, keeping aircrafts safe around windfarms or when guiding and supporting our defense customers in making safer decisions when lives are at risk.

Our ambition is to further strengthen our Radar leadership and organization and take it to – and through – the next levels. We are now looking for a senior leadership personality and profile to ignite, drive and carry this journey, strategically and tactically, through excellent leadership abilities.

Your areas of responsibility

The Head of Radar will report to the Senior Vice President of Technology & Innovation and will become a fully integrated member of the global Technology & Innovation Leadership Team, together heading a global organization counting +300 employees.

  • Lead and develop a skilled and knowledge heavy organization of +75 engineers across disciplines, corporate levels, and career tracks, focusing on talent development and retention at all levels

  • Drive and Lead parts of the Technology & Innovation strategy and creating value-add and impact across Terma through your strong stakeholder management skills and interaction with peers
  • Full technology ownership in Radar and accountable for Terma’s Technology Radar strategy and for leading technological development around the platforms
  • Responsible for establishing the technology vision and roadmap for Radar in relation to business needs
  • Develop and enhance the product development process, product development plan and innovation management
  • Deliver research and development projects on schedule, within budget and according to scope

How to succeed in this position?

Core to the position is your strong senior leadership abilities, ability to deliver impact across the full Terma organization and value-chain and your ability to drive successful change management projects. You are a visionary leader, who possess a can-do attitude, leadership courage and accountability mindset. You have an appetite to drive a positive change and are mastering the discipline of perception and communication at VP level. You are able to simplify when others might complicate, and you always deliver top level analytical results.

Finally, you exhibit a burning desire to make a difference through noticeable, positive, motivating, and agile leadership, delivering excellent tactical- and strategical organizational development results. People around you perceive you as a strong, dynamic, robust, and modern team captain.

In addition to this, we expect you to have:
