We're seeking two Project Managers (PMs) to bolster our Integration Management Office (IMO). Here's a breakdown of the roles and expectations:

1. Profile 1: Supply Chain & Merchandising PM

  • Focus: Supply Chain (Warehousing, Hubs, Operations & Expeditions), Forecasting & Replenishment, Buying (Negotiation Planning & Execution), and Merchandising.
  • Possible Expansion: This role might expand to cover a second PM in the future.

2. Profile 2: Business PM

  • Focus: Non-Financial Requirements (NFR) Analysis & Negotiation Planning, Store Operations (Maintenance, excluding Permitting), Marketing (NFR focus: cost consolidation for media buying & content distribution channels), and General PM follow-up for all streams. (Ideally with a finance business partnering background).


  • Retail Understanding: Basic understanding of retail operations is needed to:
    • Recognize how decisions impact other areas.
    • Provide constructive challenges (with good intentions).
  • Solid Project Management: Proven experience with a focus on achieving results and deliverables. This includes being:
    • Proactive
    • Business-savvy and credible with stakeholders.
    • Able to stop meetings, make decisions, and prioritize efficiency for the project's benefit.
  • Organization & Detail-Oriented: This is a large project. Every step, decision, outcome, and follow-up needs documentation within the established framework.
  • Tech Skills: Proficient in Microsoft 365, including:
    • Standard tools like Excel and PowerPoint (presentation skills needed).
    • Advanced features like Teams collaboration, Microsoft Lists, and SharePoint.
  • Hybrid Work Schedule: Two days in the office with flexibility for a possible third day in certain weeks.
  • Positive Traits: Ethical and possess a sense of humor.

Important Notes:

  • PMs are not responsible for creating content or making final decisions. Their role is to drive, organize, report, and follow up on the overall Integration Project.
  • This is not a typical professional services role. Coordination and management support from an Engagement Manager is not required. However, quality escalations need to be reported to a designated point-of-contact.
