Project Manager

Consignor is a leading provider of Delivery Management software, combining its extensive knowledge of transport and logistics with excellent software architecture and design. Consignor has the world's largest carrier library, giving customers access to the carriers that best meet their needs.The ...
As Consignor continues to grow, so does the size of our customers and the complexity of the projects we undertake to implement and serve them. Until now, customer projects have been delivered locally by our technical consultant staff with guidance and supervision from the local Operations Manager. This model works well with smaller customers, but does not work equally well towards larger, cross border enterprise customers. The local model lends little potential for pooling resources across markets or adopting best practices across business units. We have therefore decided to create a new department called Professional Services to strengthen our capabilities in this area.

Project Manager
Project Manager is an exciting new role, created to address the need for combining our best project resources under a group-wide umbrella, and strengthening our abilities in scoping and running successful customer projects. The purpose of the Project Manager is to utilize the standard tool kit and continue to build a strong project culture among our customer facing consultant staff.

Reporting to the Head of Professional Services, the Project Manager is responsible for project success, budget adherence and time adherence. Strong IT discipline is emphasized, with knowledge of Consignor’s products gained from previously or currently having a technical role. The Project Manager will serve as Consignor's point of contact throughout the project lifecycle ensuring all projects are in compliance with Consignor's project management framework.
