We are currently working various FEMA and State projects.
We are looking for an experienced Project/Contracts Manager to manage these projects and guide overall direction.
The Project/Contracts Manager must communicate with the workers in the project, as well as higher-level employees such as senior leaders and management. The Project/Contracts Manager should be organized and able to meet deadlines on the project. The manager has to know how to develop reports on the project and find a way to keep the project in the expected budgetary range. A Project/Contracts Manager should be able to attend regular meetings and give progress reports. In addition, a Project/Contracts Manager must work well with clients.
This work is primarily mental, and people skills are an essential to succeed. The Project/Contracts Manager typically works in an office setting, but he or she could also visit or work on the project site.
Accounting, engineering or construction background is useful.
An advanced working knowledge of Microsoft Excel is required.
