Position Title: Project Manager

Reports To: Field Operations Manager

The role of site project management is to manage the entire crane project, within the established budget, scope and timeframe and with responsibility over results and customer satisfaction. The project manager acts as primary interface to customer during project execution.

Project Managers must be continually engaged in the discipline of Project Management. Project Managers must take full responsibility for the projects they are charged to manage, and must invest the time and energy to fully understand the scope and requirements of each project, and to facilitate execution to meet the project expectation. Project Management must understand the impact of successful execution on all internal and external stakeholders (suppliers, customers, finance, sales, and management) and to plan and execute with consideration of all stakeholder interests.

The discipline of Project Management demands a desire to learn and improve, both technically (related to our industry) and functionally (related to the field of project management). Project Managers must take an active role in their own development by engaging internal and external experts, to strive to constantly and continually expand their knowledge.

Project Management is the single point of contact for all customer and stakeholder interactions. Project Management must be accessible, knowledgeable, helpful, and valuable to the customer interaction. Project Managers must be readily available to stakeholders, immediately responsive to stakeholder requests for information, and sufficiently knowledgeable to provide requested information immediately and efficiently.

  • Organize Site Wiring and Crane Commissioning
  • Managing Customer Change Orders
  • Support SAT (Site Acceptance Testing)
  • Prepare Project Post Mortem Reporting and Lessons Learned
  • Responsible for SAP Data Entry and Management as related to the Position

Project Management has a continuous responsibility to communicate project status to management. Our ability to create satisfied customers is dependent on our behavior throughout the entire customer purchasing experience, the majority of which is through the communication of the Site Project managers. The purchasing experience of our customers can set us apart (either positively or negatively).

Education: Post secondary degree or diploma from a college, or PMP certification is preferred. Previous Project Management experience is required.

Applicant must be familiar with transportation of heavy machinery, installation and installation practices (including basic rigging requirements), installation equipment (mobile cranes, personnel lifts, fork lifts, etc.), jobsite scheduling of multiple trades, and jobsite safety. Must have demonstrated leadership experience and well developed "people" skills. Applicant will interface with all levels of supplier and customer management and must be able to communicate effectively to all. Prior experience with overhead (EOT) crane manufacturing is a plus.

Other Requirements: Exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal.Ability to efficiently handle and administer multiple tasks on concurrently running projects, and experience in problem solving and conflict resolution.
