Project Management Specialist

The Challenge:

Are you searching for a position where you can use your project management and analysis skills to develop a project from concept to completion? A program requires a significant investment of limited resources. With that level of complexity, you need to keep the project on a productive path. That’s why we need you, a project management specialist who can help ensure success through careful analysis and effective communication.

On our team, you’ll provide program and project management expertise in supporting a U.S. Navy (USN) client for acquisition and sustainment management of an Acquisition Category (ACAT) program. You’ll work with program leadership to manage cost, schedule, and performance to support Navy Information Technology (IT) systems using tools like Microsoft Excel to analyze budgets and tracking information, Microsoft Project to manage schedules, Microsoft Word to develop contractual and other technical documents, and Microsoft PowerPoint to develop presentations. The real power of project management comes from communication to ensure the program achieves its goals and meets our quality standards. At Booz Allen, we recognize that we must continuously grow as a team to bring the best support to our clients, so here you’ll have all the resources to succeed. This is a chance to directly impact a meaningful mission, while growing your skills in program strategy.

Work with us and help make sure our DoD acquisition programs accomplish their project goals within budget as we improve IT capabilities for the military.
