Be a part of national commercial construction projects! Looking for a Project Manager to work in the Steel Metal Manufacturing Division.
Do these words describe you?
Here is a typical Metal Fabrication Project Manager day snapshot:
This role acts more like a construction project manager, as Midwest Stairs & Iron manages Ironworker installation, and so navigates with other construction subcontractors to get the job done. Predominantly, the Project Manager role will manage metal fabrication for large commercial projects within Wisconsin (e.g. think projects like the stairs at the new Northwestern Mutual building). You are the central person responsible and concerned about keeping projects moving and clients happy. Spreadsheets and email are your favorite tools. You love the extreme pace of planning and organizing and re-planning, re-organizing. Sometimes you wonder if you should seek help for being addicted to chaos. You can go toe-to-toe with meeting client demands and managing client expectations and aren’t afraid of challenging clients to get on the same page. You balance client demands with internal resources to keep both the client and internal team happy. You enjoy being a part of a growing company and helping to make a difference in continuous improvement initiatives.
Project Manager checklist for your day:
Plan, plan, plan, then re-plan, plan, plan based on changes
Analyze actual budget against an estimated budget
Key Project Manager Abilities:
Customer Relationship Management
Critical thinking and problem-solving skills
Planning and organizing
Influencing and leading
An educational background in project management is helpful if you do not have project management experience in the construction industry. The ability to type fast and above-average knowledge of spreadsheets is desirable.
