Project Scheduler, Senior
The Challenge:

You know the secret to a successful project is tracking the balance between resources and performance. You can evaluate contractors' schedules for realism, quality, and performance and risks and perform cost and schedule risk analyses to determine a probabilistic cost and schedule at project completion. What if you could use those project scheduling skills to make a difference? We have an opportunity for a project scheduler to join our team as we build a better future for our clients.

On our team, you'll work with project leadership to monitor cost, schedule, and performance using tools like Microsoft Project and regular interactions with project managers, other schedulers, and the client. The real power of project scheduling comes from communication, so you'll create and present briefings on schedule status and program health and make recommendations for improvement to project leadership. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you'll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. This is a chance to use your scheduling skills while gaining project management experience. Join us and help make sure our mission critical projects stay on-time and within budget. Relocation is not provided for this position.
