Project Coordinator - ERP

Company Confidential
Work Remotely

About the Position 

The Project Coordinator will work primarily in support of the executive sponsor & project team who are implementing a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system within a small, well established governmental agency in Southern California.  This work will fall into two categories of work;  a) the ongoing tracking and reporting related to the ERP project’s active workstreams & tasks and b) separately, under the direction of a program manager, support the status tracking of a portfolio of additional projects that are integral to the success of the ERP project.    

We are looking for someone who has a proven track record of succeeding in different types of organizational cultural environments, is already well versed in standard project management practices (e.g. PMBOK) and is highly organized, detail oriented, and able to adapt to an evolving environment.  Although experience in implementing an ERP project is highly desirable, at a minimum, candidates need experience on a cross-organizational software implementation project.   An ideal candidate will also have a proven track record of having extremely strong verbal and writing skills and ability to manage their time and tasks well; thriving in situations where significant change is necessary – and having the emotional intelligence to assist others through that change.   The individual in this role will need to have the skills to work independently, under pressure, and to handle multiple priorities, activities, and confidential matters with discretion.

Location:  US citizen, western US resident is preferred due to client being in the Pacific time zone.
