McCormick Stevenson is known for delivering efficient and effective solutions in product development for the defense and aerospace industries. Our success is largely dependent on the expertise of our Program Management team. We are looking for an experienced Program Manager to join our organization to continue our tradition of success.
The focus of this job is making connections with people, motivating and inspiring them to achieve results. Poise and an engaging, empathetic communication style based on natural warmth and enthusiasm is the key to achieving the goals of this job. The work involves driving toward results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of others. While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction, results are only achieved with and through people. A sincere appreciation for people and how they are each uniquely motivated is the foundation for designing and implementing interactive communication and decision-making processes.
Knowledge and skill in how to successfully influence and persuade others by understanding how their individual needs and motivations link to goals is essential. The job requires a high degree of “selling”, whether of ideas and policies within the organization, or products or services in the marketplace. The job environment is fast paced and results oriented. While there is urgency to goal achievement, responsibility for the achievement of results needs to be shared and effectively delegated when necessary.
Initiating projects and processes beyond established organization practices will often require training and developing others and enlisting their support by using a “selling” rather “telling” communication style. A self-confident, extroverted style that can enliven, engage and positively impact individuals and groups is essential. The job has variety of tasks and is dynamic and changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the job requires regularly meeting and pro-actively establishing relationships with new groups. The ability to understand, quickly react and motivate others to adapt to the changing organization environment is a critical key to success. In general, the core of this position requires a motivated and motivating team builder and organization developer.
You must be a US citizen or permanent resident, have a minimum of 10 years program management experience in a DoD environment and be able to pass a criminal background check.
We offer excellent pay, benefits and outstanding opportunities that can develop into larger roles. We hire based on your successful experiences, talent and fit. We hire top performers! Apply only if you meet our qualifications and experience guidelines outlined above.
