On behalf of our clients, Matchbox Consulting is seeking a Project Manager with commercial and industrial Construction project management experience.

You will have the opportunity to showcase and refine your abilities across the spectrum of commercial and industrial construction project management: strip malls and pad buildings, grocery stores, restaurants, retail, offices, food production and processing, refrigerated storage facilities. 

Education/Training

· 1-3 years of industry experience in a similar role is essential

· Microsoft Office software is your best friend: you cuddle up with Excel, Word, and Outlook on a slow Friday night, and you don’t have to google what Microsoft Project is

· You must also be comfortable with learning new programs and new methods for doing things and you can’t be shy about sharing your ideas either

· A recognized Project Management certificate is desirable

Skills/Aptitudes

· You must be fluent in and able to read and write in English (bonus points for a 2nd language)

· A fast-paced, fluid, and evolving environment doesn’t scare you; it invigorates you

· Your friends make fun of you for your staunch attention to detail, but your fastidious nature empowers you to influence others’ decision making

· You are flexible and want to grow with a company that is in a serious growth mode – if you’ve got bigger aspirations, you can reach them with us!

· You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty when you see an opportunity – when someone asks for a volunteer, you don’t look around the room or at your toes; you are the one

· You are exceptional at communicating your thoughts clearly in formal documents, emails, texts, and most importantly, in good old-fashioned face to face discussions

· The ability and interest in working outside of your ‘job description’ from time to time

Duties/Responsibilities

· Full responsibility for the successful delivery of each project, which means you get the glory or the goat

· Ensure that all of our clients’ expectations are not only met but exceeded

· Maintain strong, productive relationships with our clients, based on mutual-respect and strong communication

· Ensure that project quality, schedule, and budget are established and maintained through each project

· Lead the project team and subcontractors through the entire lifecycle of the project

· No one loves paperwork, but it’s a vital and essential evil of the role. RFI’s, submittals, change orders, progress billings, etc., may annoy you, but you are comfortable administering them and believe in their significance

· Provide backup to other departments, including assisting Estimators with projects, liaising with Site Superintendents, etc.
