Project Manager Job Opening
Why this position exists in our organization:
The Project Manager position exists in our organization to concurrently keep 30+ fast-paced, very complex projects moving ahead smoothly and on time. The Project Manager also plays the role of client liaison and account manager, ensuring that clients receive prompt and constant communication about their project. Additionally, the Project Manager is expected to bring new levels of efficiency to the organization, so that additional projects and clients can be taken on without the need for additional resources.
Why this is a rewarding role:
The Project Management role is a crucial one, that if done properly, will:
Make clients feel cared for, through excellent communication
Get clients better results, via thorough attention to detail
Keep the business owner and team members organized and stress-free, by ensuring that no task “falls through the cracks”
Directly contribute to the growth of the organization, through increased efficiency and capacity to take on more projects and clients.
The right individual, who consistently contributes to these great outcomes, will not only enjoy the personal satisfaction that naturally occurs by producing such results, but will also be rewarded with increases in compensation that are reflective of the increases in client satisfaction, company revenue, and stress relief that they have brought to the organization.
Additionally, anyone with an interest in internet marketing, specifically search engine optimization and pay-per-click advertising, will learn a great deal about the industry through osmosis as they lead these projects. If desired, direct participation in this type of project work could be considered if desired.
This will start out as a part time position, 15-25 hours per week, but the right individual could easily and quickly evolve this into a full time role.
While many of these job responsibilities can be performed by telecommute, it is preferred that the individual be capable of working on site in Sparta, NJ as needed, especially when first becoming acclimated with the organization.
Compensation starts at a very fair going market rate and will increase as noted above.
