Position Summary:

TNT and FedEx officially joined forces on 25 May 2016; we’re starting our new future together. A combined FedEx and TNT will enable us to more effectively grow and compete, to better meet the evolving needs of our customers and the global marketplace. For our future team members, as part of one of the strongest transportation and logistics companies in the world, this means more opportunities to grow, learn and succeed.  

As part of the external acquisition an opportunity has arisen within the organisation for a Project Manager, where you will join a team whose mission is to collaboratively support the Business and IT Partners, to drive the integration and add “real” value to the organisation. By delivering the IT and Technology components across multiple functional streams involved in the integration.

In addition to the skills identified below, we are looking for an individual that has a positive attitude and mind-set to how they approach their work. This will enable them to overcome the unexpected challenges that are presented throughout the life-cycle of complex and time sensitive projects. We are also looking for an individual that can not only provide the required project management skills but will jump in to provide a “hands on “approach when required to help support the organisation and their colleagues.

As a collaborative team made up of individuals that multitask, it will mean that on regular occasions you will also be asked to step outside the Project Management skill set to call upon your Business Relationship Management and analytical capabilities.  This will be required so that you can work with our internal stakeholders to understand their current and future business needs from an IT and process perspective, so that we are well placed to help collaboratively deliver those requirements.

In return a robust Personal Development Plan will be implemented to help you build a career in one of the worlds most admired companies with the opportunity on occasions for travel. This coupled with a team environment where everyone supports each other and we continually challenge “how” we do things, makes this a truly exciting opportunity, where you will have purpose and be recognised for doing great work.

Main Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Partner, support and collaborate with management in designing, implementing, evaluating and managing the safe execution of all assigned projects 
  • Effectively estimates costs, timescales and resource requirements for the successful delivery of the project(s) to an agreed scope
  • Coordinate internal and external resources to meet project requirements, as defined by the project scope 
  • Identifies, assesses and manages risk to the success of the project 
  • Ensures that realistic project and quality plans are prepared and maintained and tracks all activities against the plan, providing regular and accurate reports to key stakeholders 
  • Actively represents the project team, ensuring that effective relationships are built and maintained with the business

To be successful in this role you will have:
  • Project Management Qualification
  • Experience in managing medium to large scale IT projects
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Excellent presentation skills
  • A positive, “Can-Do” attitude
  • Excellent data analysis skills

FedEx was built on a philosophy that puts people first, one we take seriously. We are an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce in which we provide growth opportunities for all

Our Company

FedEx Express is one of the world's largest express transportation companies and has consistently been selected as one of the top 10 World’s Most Admired Companies by "Fortune" magazine. Every day FedEx delivers for its customers with transportation and business solutions, serving more than 220 countries and territories around the globe. We can serve this global network due to our outstanding team of FedEx team members, who are tasked with making every FedEx experience outstanding.

Our Philosophy

The People-Service-Profit philosophy (P-S-P) describes the principles that govern every FedEx decision, policy or activity. FedEx takes care of our people; they, in turn, deliver the impeccable service demanded by our customers, who reward us with the profitability necessary to secure our future. The essential element in making the People-Service-Profit philosophy such a positive force for the company is where we close the circle, and return these profits back into the business, and invest back in our people. Our success in the industry is attributed to our people. Through our P-S-P philosophy, we have a work environment that encourages team members to be innovative in delivering the highest possible quality of service to our customers. We care for their well-being, and value their contributions to the company.

Our Culture

Our culture is important for many reasons, and we intentionally bring it to life through our behaviors, actions and activities in every part of the world. The FedEx culture and values have been a cornerstone of our success and growth since we began in the early 1970’s. While other companies can copy our systems, infrastructure and processes, our culture makes us unique and is often a differentiating factor as we compete and grow in today’s global marketplace.
