  • Manage project budget for both expense and capital against the original project budget
  • Coach to clarify assignments and deliverables; mentor others in project management practices; review quality of work and manage the integration of team members work

Our practice is growing, and we're looking to add to our professional staff. The successful candidate will have:

  • 5 years experience in consulting or industry leadership position, 10 years experience preferred

  • Deep expertise across healthcare payer products, including commercial HMO, PPO, Consumer Driven Health Plans, Pharmacy, Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Part A and Part B
