The mission: To drive a project from conception to completion under the guidance of senior level PM, on time, within the scope, and budget.

You will be developing project budgets, outlining a project schedule and managing small projects independently and large projects under supervision.

You will be evaluating projects based on an understanding of regulatory and/or technical requirements, financial metrics, and constraints, so experience with forecasting and delivery of financial reports of budgets is expected. Although supported by our regulatory team, we expect you to have a fair amount of expertise in regulatory areas relevant to project development.
