They will remain on the forefront of emerging industry practices and technology and the potential application of these practices and technologies to client engagements. As TruNorthe focuses on technological solutions, the PM will quickly learn TruNorthe’s capabilities and gain proficiency with internal software applications and tools.

Teamwork and Personnel Development
A PM takes full-ownership and leads a team of people and will be responsible for their productive operation and professional development as a company resource. As such, the PM will serve as a role model and mentor to team members in order to challenge and foster their professional development; inspire team members to attain personal and company goals in the pursuit of excellence; use each team member to their full potential; establish a teamwork-based environment; encourage open communication; acknowledge each team member’s contributions; minimize and mitigate team conflicts; and track and review lessons learned with the team. Each PM and team member will be willing to step in and assist where/when needed, cross training throughout the organization and working long hours or weekends as necessary to achieve goals and expectations.

Office & Organizational Skills
A PM will possess solid computer and internet skills, (including proficiency in MS Office applications) and have the ability to quickly learn new internal and client applications. Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail and the ability to multi-task are also required.

Project Management
  • Pre-Construction

Review and ensure a complete and inclusive Notice To Proceed (NTP) is issued to the selected GC. Schedule and hold organized and productive Pre-Construction meetings on-site with all project participants.
  • In-Construction
    Effectively apply our positive, solutions-oriented methodology and enforce project standards in day-to-day management.

Ensure all documents are uploaded in TruBase and that all tasks and milestones are completed and invoiced timely and accurately.


Project Control
Evaluate all key project deliverables, as well as final product, to ensure traceability of requirements, high quality, delivery timelines, budget performance, achievement of expectations, and overall client acceptance. Identify, track, manage and mitigate risk on specific client engagements. Escalate these issues when necessary to ensure minimal impact to quality, budget and timeline. Manage scope creep through change orders, phased delivery or other methods to ensure projects are delivered on time, in scope, on budget and as expected.
