The projects being managed are mostly capital and are intended to update the electric grid over the next several years and in multiple states where the utility serves electric customers. The volume of projects will eventually ramp up to hundreds of millions of dollars per year. We are seeking an individual who has project estimating and or budgeting experience and can assist the project managers in sufficiently driving out details around their scope of work from one year to the next so sound estimates can be budgeted and tracked by cost analysts who are assigned to the various workstreams.
Strong analytics are required so actuals from one year can be incorporated into budgets for the following year, resulting in continuous improvement in accuracy from one year to the next. This position will be responsible for evaluating and assessing the variances, identifying trends and burn rates for project leadership. A critical element of this work will be the ability to work successfully in a matrix organization and technically complex working environment. This position must have a proven track record working with contingency budgets, direct and indirect labor charges, accruals, overheads, allocations, earned value calculations, and monetized risks. Prior experience in a similar role on large I/T or construction project is needed.

Must have very strong interpersonal skills, organizational skills, computer skills, writing and communication skills, strong problem-solving skills.
