Calling all Retail Project Managers!
If you are a tech-savvy, dot your i's and cross your t's, outgoing people-person who can use most Google and Microsoft Office products, we are looking for you!
Atlantic Coast Merchandising, founded in 2005, is one of the fastest growing national leaders in retail merchandising services. Each year, ACM matches thousands of contract retail merchandisers with client opportunities across the US. During these projects, our highly skilled crew work at national chain and independent stores performing various skills such as store resets, remodels, new store openings, product demonstrations, general merchandising, creating displays and new product introductions.
Business is growing, and we're seeking talented individuals to join our talent pool for potential management openings. This is an exciting time. We're creating our future here; anything is possible! We're looking for smart, ambitious, inquisitive people who thrive on the pace and intensity of our work, and who want to grow with the team.
The Project Manager's primary role is to manage Client/ACM relationships to ensure all expectations and requirements are successfully achieved. You will identify and schedule contracted crew for specific client projects and monitor crew performance and deliverables. This includes working with our extensive database of verified merchandisers as well as other grassroots methods for crew recruitment. This process of recruiting, verifying, selecting, and confirming merchandisers requires precise planning, careful execution, and clear communication.
What's unique about this job
This is a full-time salaried position, depending on experience, and 7-day per week availability may be needed depending on business requirements. This is a virtual, home office based position with a flexible schedule, working off hours and weekends as necessary. Although we may enjoy a flexible work schedule, that does not change our Client deadlines and your commitment to work during scheduled business hours.
As a Project Manager, you will contribute to ACM's success by developing, managing and implementing medium to large cross-divisional projects and programs for clients nationwide, delivered on a blitz or an ongoing basis. You will find productive solutions to our clients' retail service needs by effectively planning, scheduling, coordinating, allocating and deploying ACM resources to maximize client satisfaction and ACM profitability. If you are looking for an exciting and rewarding career, this is the role for you.
