Full-time, term position (to December 31, 2021) – Ottawa, ON

If you're an experienced team leader, adept at managing complex, multi-site technical projects and communicating across functions and management levels, this opportunity with Canada Post is for you.

As Manager of Corporate Projects, you will act as "second in command" to the Project Director, supporting the planning and delivery of large, complex multimillion-dollar initiatives that are of strategic importance to Canada Post.

Among other priorities, you'll be counted upon to maintain current knowledge of project status and issue resolution, put in place budget control mechanisms, and report status and variances to plan to the Project Sponsor and Senior Management on a regular basis. You will also establish an overall quality management process to ensure that the project will satisfy the needs for which it was undertaken.

This position will involve a small amount of travel.
