Open Positions:

Business Administrative Assistant

Position Description:

This position provides broad company support for business development, service delivery, and company operations.   The primary role of the Administrative Assistant is to centralize management of day-to-day operational tasks in support of the various business units in the company.  

Administrative Duties:

  • Support the company’s Business Development process with tracking of leads and proposal pipeline, and assist with the coordination of proposal delivery schedules.

The primary role of a Project Manager (PM) is to direct and organize people and manage deliverables in order to reach a specific outcome. At Lorax, how a project is defined can vary, and may include supporting or managing specific internal company goals. However, in most instances a project will be a finite scope of work on behalf of a customer.   It is the PM’s primary role to effectively manage the delivery of all elements of contractual scope to the client’s satisfaction, while completing billable deliverables on time and in an efficient manner.

An effective PM must focus on managing people, and should possess a broad view and understanding of each team member’s role in order for project goals to be reached.  Much of a PM’s job involves developing and maintaining an action plan and an aggregable schedule, ensuring the appropriate resources are in place, roles are understood, and all activities are thoroughly managed through completion.
