UMS Group is looking for people with operations, planning and technical experience in the utility industry (4 to 10 years). UMS Group is well known for our access to utilities, and our ability to develop and transfer insights and industry best practices from around the world. We need people who are good problem solvers, self-starters, innovative, excellent communicators and writers and who have ambition to get beyond a single company, to understand the big picture, rapidly assimilate information, knowledge and experience and build their marketability and value within the utility industry on an accelerated basis. In the course of executing their functions, will:
• Evaluate utility performance, identify performance gaps and provide support to implement gap-closing performance improvement plans,
• Assess the effectiveness of processes and performance against industry standard metrics, identifying and quantifying improvement opportunities,
• Facilitate process redesign and strategy development efforts, and
• Develop decision-support tools and models. Drafts reports, proposals, technical position papers and presentations.
Consulting can be a short-cut to the executive suite as it teaches you strategic perspective, the big picture and innovative new ways to look at current and future problems. Advanced degrees are a plus, but not necessary. Undergraduate in engineering -- electrical, mechanical, or industrial – strongly preferred.
Senior Consulting Project Managers
UMS Group is looking for people that understand the utility industry, and have substantial prior experience in managing consulting projects with a track record of delivering on time, on budget, with delighted customers and substantial innovation and new IP development on each project. The successful candidate should be able to cultivate and sustain client relationships at the executive level and have a demonstrated history of being able to identify, propose and close on follow-up opportunities within the project client organization. It is also critically important to be able to manage less tangible factors such as strategic intent, political sensitivities, inter-personal alignment and motivation issues and able to quickly identify intrinsic opportunities to extrapolate client projects into products and templates that can be used on other client engagements.
