About Our Firm:

Granite Solutions Groupe provides financial services decision makers with people and solutions that deliver. Our clients count on us to deliver the right talent at the right time to achieve critical business results. We leverage our industry knowledge and passion for client priorities to deliver human capital solutions.

GSG was founded in 1998 as a consulting firm delivering project management and technology solutions for the financial services industry. GSG now has a global presence, with team members deployed across the U.S. at Fortune 1000 companies and high-performing Fintech firms.

High-caliber consultants are the face of GSG at our client organizations and offices. We value the deep relationships we have with our consultants that enable us to place them in roles where their skills will have an immediate impact. The GSG consulting team is comprised of diverse, experienced, driven, and dynamic contributors who excel at getting things done.

About the Opportunity:

GSG is seeking a Project Manager to join our dynamic team. We deliver expertise talent for our business partners. Our client is a global investment management firm focused on institutional, intermediary, and individual clients, and led by investment professionals whose primary responsibility is finding long-term investment opportunities, rooted in its value-oriented approach to active management. They are incredibly focused on a small number of investment strategies that they strive to execute very well. Their business has grown primarily through referrals based on our reputation for excellence, and they have never paid for advertising or had a traditional sales team.

Their Communications team is leading an initiative that aims to unify their messages and experience across their key stakeholder groups, including institutional investors, financial professionals, individual investors, international investors, and job candidates.  There are two significant projects within this initiative: 1) Formalizing their brand strategy to scale it for new markets and channels; and 2) Modernizing their digital platform to improve their ability to engage stakeholders for positive business outcomes. This will be a multi-phase program that will consist of projects with multiple deliverables that need to be overseen for a successful implementation. 

We are seeking a talented, collaborative Project Manager who understands the end-to-end activation from creative development through execution of online and offline marketing campaigns or web programs.

  • Excellent communication skills and problem resolution track record.
  • Good knowledge and handling of project and program management methodology and techniques.

  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Good knowledge of budgeting and resource allocation procedures.
  • Working knowledge of MS Office (including Visio and MS Project), and SharePoint required.
  • Experience using Tableau, Webex, and Clarizen is preferred.
  • 3-5 years program management experience.
