Toronto,

SENIOR PROJECT SCHEDULER / PM with Primavera P6

SENIOR PROJECT SCHEDULER / PM
Sector: Pharmaceutical / Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
Location: Toronto, ON
Long term multi year project

MUST HAVE: Primavera P6

Project Focus – Construction of a New Pharma (Biopharmaceutical) Manufacturing Facility (multi-year project) – Construction Experience is an ASSET

The scheduler will be scheduling commissioning, qualification and validation activities for our client.

Must have experience very senior scheduling experience, managing complex schedules where changes in master schedule effect numerous other schedules and stakeholders – must have excellent communication skills.

DUTIES:

  • Manage and maintain a schedule following currently defined Commissioning & Qualification strategy.
  • Update reports, and communicate actions with project team in a timely manner.
  • Work proactively to ensure all data is received when required and all reporting is submitted within specified deadlines – KPI reports within Excel which may require additional analysis. They should have experience with this.
 
SKILLS:
  1. Someone highly experienced in Project Scheduling (10+ years is ideal) – This person will be the scheduling lead for the project
  2. Who is a good communicator and will be able to understand the cascade of consequences of a change or delay on the schedule of the project and be able to explain it to the different stakeholders! Some with a good understanding of the global picture, as so many schedules integrate into CQV activites, it is quite complex…
  3. Primavera P6 is a must
  4. Pharma experience is an asset – but open to other industries.
  5. Experience working in complex environments with only one scheduler (i.e. not multiple schedulers where work is very segregated and only part of the schedule is managed) – and has a vertical approach in previous scheduling experience – this is a Must – (this vertical approach is seen more in aerospace, food & beverage, and real estate/construction and so we would welcome this experience if the consultant did not have Pharma expercience. This vertical approach is seen less often common in Oil & Gas and Nuclear sectors where there are numerous schedulers managing only portions of schedules and focused experience in these sectors may not be as favourable)
  6. Because it’s a new building project, construction has a big impact on the schedule so construction experience becomes an asset.
  7. Experience in a regulated industry would help too.
The ideal candidate would be someone with construction & Industrial experience, who has very good comm skills.
 
Potential candidates will be tested for their ability in using Primavera P6 software and reporting as part of the selection process – this is done via laptop on the spot during the interview to display that they know how to use the software.
  • Well-developed communication skills, both verbal and written. Ability to interface with cross-functional teams. Detail oriented.
  • Proficient with Microsoft Office products (Excel (vlookups, hlookups, pivot tables, graphs, tables general, in general, anything to data), Word, PowerPoint, etc.)
  • Can manage and produce relevant KPI reports and schedule performance metrics and clearly communicate back to the project team – this will be touched upon in the interview.
  • Construction experience is desirable – scheduling and planning in this space – but this is a nice to have.
EDUCATION:
  • Bachelors degree in engineering, or related degree supplemented with relevant experience.
