IT Project Manager - Downers Grove, IL - 3-6 Month Contract to Hire $60-70/hr W2
The first few months they will focus on process controls and apply the process controls around risks as a function. They will help automate the process controls that were defined and then redefined. The last few months of the contract will be more traditional IT project delivery for software enhancements and infrastructure delivery.
The initial focus for this effort is centered on applying strong project management controls in support of automating risk process controls. Expect that this will consume the PM for 100% of time over the first 2 – 3 months and then scale down to hand over process and structure to Risk function for BAU work. During this time we will look for opportunities to slowly incorporate the PM into other Home Office IT PMO projects specifically where Agile experience may be needed.
