Business Change Project Manager (remote)

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Canada is looking to recruit a project manager to manage a significant change project. We are looking to merge the operations, finance and governance of what are currently different legal entities across Canada. The goal of the project, called “Fit to Deliver”, is to streamline our infrastructure, to ensure greater capacity for growth and sustainability.

Closing Date: January 8, 2021

We are looking for a senior manager/consultant to work on a 9 – 12 month contract to help us deliver this potentially complex project in a carefully planned, well organized and measured manner. The successful candidate will report to the National Executive Director and work closely with national Board members, the national senior management team and leaders of the 10 divisional entities. The successful candidate will also manage one or two transition team members, who will support the change process.

As directed by the National Executive Director, the Business Change Project Manager is responsible for developing and implementing the Fit to Deliver project using recognized project and change management principles in order to ensure successful delivery and optimize project benefits and outcomes. The Project Manager will have several project strands to manage and co-ordinate, with some requiring full project and change management disciplines. These workstreams will contribute to the overall Fit to Deliver project. The Project Manager will be required to build relationships with Board members and committee members, divisional entities (staff and board members) and potentially, external organizations and government departments in order to maintain knowledge and awareness of the wider policy landscape, including opportunities for further cost-saving and business improvements.

HOW TO APPLY – Potential applicants should send a cover letter explaining how they feel the role requirements along with a supporting resume to Stephen De-Wint, National Executive Director sdewint@dukeofed.org.
