A project management professional committed to delivering programs on-time and within budget by improving the effectiveness of project teams through the application of professionally accepted program and project management methods, techniques, and tools. Candidate may support 2-4 medium to large or many more small projects.
JOB DUTIES: The incumbent typically has some relevant project management experience and will require limited supervision for most duties. He/she supports projects that have moderate value and may be somewhat complex in nature. This is a staff position that requires a very good understanding of program and project management tools & processes. The incumbent will provide facilitation for project teams and will lead control meetings and chartering/planning sessions for small to medium projects. Incumbent may assist senior coordinators with larger, more complex chartering/planning sessions. Maintains program level issues/action logs, risk registers, scope change requests/logs, program work plans, and program cost tracking. Maintains accurate project schedules with some follow-up by Program Management Supervisor to ensure data quality. The incumbent captures project information, analyzes data from schedule updates (e.g. critical path), works with project team members to resolve logic errors, helps explain changes due to updates, and updates plan according to actions taken by the project team to resolve schedule problems. Creates report packages and communicates project status.
This position requires a four year college or university degree. Three plus years of job-related experience in program management. Exposure to engineering, or product development, or purchasing, or IT desired. Must have strong interpersonal skills including excellent communication skills, strong meeting facilitation skills, and the ability to work well in a team environment. Must possess sound knowledge of project management software (Primavera or MS Project), MS Office (Excel/Word/Powerpoint), Adobe Acrobat, and Web Publishing tools. Willing to consider recent college graduates and others with less project management experience at a lower salary grade if they have a great work ethic and excellent communication skills. Resource and cost loading in Primavera is a huge plus for my area, as are more advanced Excel skills (pivot tables, lookup functions, etc).
