Project Manager (12-month contract)


PROJECT MANAGER - 12-month contract (Winnipeg, Manitoba)
This is not your typical project management role! Here is an opportunity to leave your mark on one of Winnipeg’s prominent manufacturing companies, joining a fast-paced but collaborative work culture.

During this year-long contract as a Project Manager, you will be responsible for the end-to-end delivery of a new cloud-based ERP solution. The Project Manager will assume control of GAP analysis and data mapping. Focus will be on replacing the oldest parts of the current system first.
