The Position

The project manager will lead ~1-8 active projects with budgets that vary from $100K up to over $200M, and will have full responsibility for managing these funds to achieve project success. The incumbent will lead and direct vendor partners to achieve project goals. The role will also coordinate and need to influence Genentech stakeholders to define the project scope, resolve conflicts and negotiate tradeoffs to meet budget and schedule targets. The role will need to present to upper management for project updates and funding requests. The projects may be complex in nature, and the role requires good judgment and strategic focus to apply the incumbent’s experience to develop the best scope, considering Genentech’s broader business needs.

The role requires a strong ability to lead and oversee project teams. The project manager is expected to resolve problems with medium complexity, but seeks guidance from manager on more challenging issues. The project manager is expected to lead projects in an independent manner, requiring feedback or direction on just a few issues per week from management.

This role is being posted as an E4 (Senior Project Manager) \ E5 (Principal Project Manager) level position. The selected candidate will be offered the position based on their qualifications and experience level at one of these two levels.

Lead Project Execution - The project manager is expected to lead between 1 and 8 active projects at the same time in an independent manner, requiring limited support from upper management (number of projects dependent on size and complexity). The projects will each be in the range of $100K to $200M in total project value. If assigned a very large project, this may be the project manager’s full time focus. If the assigned projects are smaller, it’s expected that the project manager will lead multiple such projects simultaneously. The project manager has primary responsibility for the project from the project initiation stage through project closeout. Key tasks include selecting and bidding out\hiring design and construction firms to execute the work, leading project design and construction meetings, managing and updating the project schedule, managing the project budget, obtaining purchase orders, approving invoices, and updating the project Unifier database as well as creating and presenting formal monthly reports to Design and Construction management on each project.

Present Projects to Senior Leadership - The project manager will be responsible to lead their project team to complete the activities defined in each phase of the project, and then present to senior leadership for funding. The audience ranges from the Director of Design and Construction for smaller projects, up to a committee led by the Vice President of Site Services along with several directors for mid-size \ large projects.

Process improvements – A small fraction of the project managers time will be spent supporting broad Design and Construction and Site Services process improvement projects and LEAN initiatives, to improve the processes and functioning of the overall team.
