  Job Description

  • Demonstrated experience leading global project teams and operating in a geographically-separated team environment. 
  • The person needs to be culturally-aware of the different work styles in each of these regions.
  • Possesses strong business acumen and professionalism when interacting with staff and senior leadership.  While a contract role, a successful candidate will need to operate with a sense of ownership that balance the completion of tasks with an understanding of the bigger picture and how their efforts will contribute to the objectives.  In short, the contractor needs to think and act like a full-time member of the organization and not simply a hired hand.
  • Understands and recognizes project management best practices and operates under the framework for managing projects but is not purely project management-minded.  A successful candidate should have a program-oriented mindset as they will likely be working on a series of different-types of projects.  values project management but is still maturing its model and a rigid task-master project manager is unlikely to be successful here.  A candidate who knows how to right-size the project management while keeping teams focused on the big picture will achieve success.
  • The role in is business-oriented and not technology-focused.  The role will interact with the technology organization but will not be responsible for managing technology projects.  A successful candidate will have demonstrated experience delivering business-oriented global projects.
  • Written and verbal communications skills are critical in this role.  A successful candidate must be able to communicate clearly when writing and speaking and have a strong ability to think on their feet.  The latter is especially important when engaging with the global regions and colleagues in other departments both in New Brunswick and worldwide.
  • A successful candidate must demonstrate an ability to work autonomously in what is often an ambiguous work environment.  In short, candidates that want/need a lot of structure will not be successful here.  The structure is evolving but for now, ambiguity is a daily reality which will require candidates who are confident and comfortable operating in such an environment.
