    Job Description

    Kforce's client in Baton Rouge, LA is searching for a Project Manager for the REOCIT Portfolio.

    The REOCIT (Real Estate Office Change IT) Portfolio is a joint IT/RE initiative to improve overall delivery management of IT Infrastructure for RE office change ventures globally (new builds, moves, restacking, decommissioning, etc.). The portfolio operates as a CoE for office changes, and through driving standardization, using common processes/tools, leveraging experienced resources, and application of lessons learned, it delivers repeatable high-quality IT across all projects.

    REOCIT effectively operates as the IT delivery arm of Real Estate's Commercial Deals & Projects (CD&P) organization, where REOCIT strategically provides overall technology design and project delivery services for CDP-managed office change projects.

    The REOCIT Project Manager leads single large-scale projects, or multiple smaller projects, and is expected to understand and execute project methodology (predominantly Waterfall for REOCIT projects, but with an agile mindset) to successfully manage expectations for all project stakeholders in a fast-paced, unpredictable environment. This involves collaboration with many interdepartmental teams and senior IT/RE leadership and requires a nimble approach to multiple initiatives with simultaneous delivery expectations.

    The REOCIT Project Manager is responsible for the IT design and build portion of RE Office projects. The REOCIT Project Manager needs to coordinate and integrate delivery from subcontracted teams of multiple vendors to complete specific work tasks.
