Job Level

NV-11

We're looking for a new dynamic delivery manager who wants to join a team on the move. We have several internal partners who have more objectives and ideas to implement and maintain. Over the past year, we've been working on a new dynamic to stimulate our relationship with them and our vision forward.

If you're looking for challenges, we're the place for you.

As project delivery manager, you will help direct material, time, IT and human resources on cross-sector projects to meet objectives on time and on budget. You will analyze project feasibility and opportunity, develop action plans, define milestones and coordinate project teams.

You will supervise and coordinate contributors involved in the application and technology component of highly innovative, large-scale projects involving multiple sectors. You will ensure timelines and budgets are respected. You will plan, prioritize and coordinate work to deliver on the commitments made in line with the objectives. You will ensure the quality of the deliverables, and the performance and engagement of the team of contributors. Your projects and initiatives will require extensive knowledge of your field.

You will be responsible for strategic projects with a very high degree of operational and conceptual complexity, requiring analysis and a comprehensive, in-depth understanding of the business and the organization. Coordination will be critical, and you will be required to interact with a large number of stakeholders who are experts in a variety of fields. Interpersonal savvy is therefore essential.

You will serve as an expert and play a leadership and influencer role when interacting with senior management, decision-making bodies and work teams.
