Elliott Gray work hard to partner with employers who truly make a difference to our corner of the world, and this one is a cracker!
We have partnered with a small NFP in the education consulting sector and are recruiting for an experienced and hands-on Project Manager to join a PMO and take on the responsibility for the coordination, management and delivery of a portfolio of projects including large scale domestic and international programs.
This isn't your ordinary PM role. We are not looking for people coming out of ICT project environments who adhere to strict project management methodologies, instead we want those natural project managers who instinctively understand how to align moving pieces, engage complex stakeholder groups, and do it all to budget with the right resources.
As Project Manager you will work across a wide variety of unique and highly engaging projects, both domestically and internationally. Drawing upon a team of resources, you will engage stakeholders from some high profile government agencies and NGO's in your quest to deliver an exceptional level of quality project management to a unique tertiary sector client base. You will lead the project delivery phase, ensuring projects are delivered on time, to budget and to high quality standard compliant with contracted obligations.
I know what you are thinking - this sounds great, but do I have the background they need
The answer is yes if you have managed multiple concurrent large and small-scale projects, both international and domestic, with multiple stakeholders. Management includes all aspects of project management including personnel, subcontracting, risk management, financial, planning, deliverables and reporting.
You are also a skilled contract manager, comfortable in the effective management of striking the balance between client needs and contract requirements.
Your background can be varied, and from a variety of sectors. Prior experience managing complex projects in an international setting would be a huge advantage, as would your ability to travel when required.
Personally you are a real do-er, this is what will set you aside from others. Your desire to roll up your sleeves and jump in to work alongside your project team will ensure your success. Adaptable in nature, you easily transition from hands-on work to high-level stakeholder management, able to effectively identify opportunities that ensure you have a seat at the table in key stakeholder meetings.
Qualifications/Certifications As mentioned earlier - we are looking for natural skill over certifications, but evidence of ongoing professional development and relevant business tertiary qualifications would be an advantage.
We look forward to hearing from you!
