Project Manager

Management Partners

Management Partners is seeking talented project managers to oversee projects ranging from specific operational reviews (e.g., community development, public works, parks and recreation, administrative services), to organizational assessments of large and small governmental departments; innovative governmental reorganizations and special projects; and top to bottom fiscal and budget troubleshooting.
