Project Manager Zurich
a-connect offers a disruptive approach to supporting global corporations with an innovative networked consulting model: Founded over 17 years ago, we have successfully specialized in supporting leading corporations with implementing strategy, growth projects, and change management. We operate by putting together teams on a bespoke basis from a global pool of 1,900 top tier independent professionals across 60 countries and 9 offices.
We are looking for like-minded people to help us realize the full growth potential of our networked model in today’s networked world. Project Managers need to be commercially-minded self-starters with strong consulting and project management skills who can deliver high quality client work, lead project engagements, manage stakeholders and nurture relationships with clients and independent professionals while building and developing their own networks and reputations.
Our Project Managers are highly motivated self-starters who can independently prioritize and drive their own work in an entrepreneurial setting, possess enthusiasm and energy to take on new initiatives, are able to exploit new business opportunities, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, are culturally sensitive and curious, and can work effectively with global teams.
At a-connect, we believe in the power of human resourcefulness. We commit to providing our employees with an engaging, intellectually stimulating and entrepreneurial work environment.
