Turnkey project - projects manager

As project manager, you will  manage varying project requirements, from a complete turnkey float-off operation to the design & fabrication of bespoke marine equipment – so every day is different and no day is dull!

You will also be afforded the opportunity to develop your own portfolio of clients, building lasting networks. We pride ourselves on prioritising  client requirements, engaging from the early stages to aid in detailed planning and risk management, as well as throughout the project life cycle. This provides an opportunity for you to shine, applying your leadership skills to manage resource requirements, whether that encompasses a small team or several larger sub-contractor teams.

Our internal processes and procedures are modelled on the APM Body of Knowledge and this, along with our subject matter expertise in the marine and heavy lift industry, allows us to work closely with our clients to create a foundation for the successful delivery of project requirements.

And to top it all off, we are based in one of Glasgow’s most iconic offices, the South Rotunda, located near Finnieston which is bustling with cafes and lunch-time walks.

malin abram: an innovative, expert team

This is an opportunity to join an organisation with a rich heritage, dating back to 1899 – with Malin Abram being synonymous with heavylift expertise.  But there is also scope to develop and innovate, with the firm being one of the early innovators in the field in Scotland. The company transferred project management experience delivering ships, going back as far as 1899, into a unique heavy lift shipping service in the 1980’s.


From this, the company has grown into a diverse Group revolving round the marine industry and are now recognised as one of the most comprehensive providers of end-to-end marine solutions in the world. We have recently taken joint ownership of the CD01 barge, one of the biggest semi-submersible barges in Europe. Given this, you would have the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting scopes, all over the world and across sectors, from defence to offshore renewables.

And it’s not just our facilities that are diverse – our colleagues are also involved in a number of varied areas, ensuring continued professional development, including:

  • Bespoke mechanical equipment
  • Marine engineering and consultation
  • Design and third party warranty support
  • Lifting, shipping and haulage
  • Cargo shipments
  • Turnkey transportation services
  • Naval architecture
