Hands on involvement with major projects contracts has developed your insight to the end-to-end processes in support of multi-million dollar projects. Years of experience have sharpened your skills for identifying project needs, developing appropriate strategies, identifying resource requirements, and demonstrated knowledge of contracts execution from early stages through completion. For our  infrastructure projects, we need someone like you to join us as a Project Manager, Contracts where you can apply your knowledge, and share your insight across multiple project teams.
