The Junior Project Manager will be in charge of assisting our project managers and technical leads in organizing ongoing projects. They will help to make sure all team members and departments have what is needed to meet the deadlines and milestones set by the project manager. In order to do this, the Junior Project Manager must be familiar with all aspects of the project, including all short and long-term goals, stakeholder involvement, project schedules and budgets.
What you will be responsible for:
Maintaining and monitoring project plans, project schedules, work hours, budgets and expenditures.
Organizing, attending and participating in stakeholder meetings.
Documenting and following up on important actions and decisions from meetings.
Preparing necessary presentation materials for meetings.
Ensuring project deadlines are met.
Determining project changes.
Providing administrative support as needed.
Undertaking project tasks as required.
Ensuring projects adhere to frameworks and all documentation is maintained appropriately for each project.
Ensure stakeholder views are managed.
Chair and facilitate meetings where appropriate and distribute minutes to all project team members.
What you bring to the table:
Detail Oriented: Attention to detail is critical when you’re overseeing so many different aspects of the project, all of which are important to its well-being and success. Be sure to highlight this aspect on your project coordinator resume.
Dependable: The project manager is going to depend on the Junior Project Manager to handle the minutia of the project’s management, and therefore, it’s crucial that you are dependable and can be relied on to uphold responsibilities without having to be micromanaged.
Good Communicator: Think of the Junior PM as the bridge connecting the project manager to various other project members, then you can see the importance of having superior communications skills. They need to understand the message and deliver it clearly to the target audience.
Productive: The project demands productivity from its participants, and this is especially true for the Junior PM role. It takes coordination as the grease that keeps the wheels of the project turning, so it’s doubly important that they’re productive.
Get Things Done: The last thing a project manager wants is a Junior PM who is given a task and then doesn’t follow-through. You will need to have a great deal of autonomy. If you can’t get things done, then its all for naught. The ability to get things done is probably the biggest requirement on a Junior Project Manager job description.
