Project Control Specialist, Senior

The Challenge:

The right mixture of great ideas and funding can create powerful change. In a complex organization, allocating funding to where it can be most effective can be a challenge. That’s why we need you, a financial analyst who can navigate the requirements, policies, and regulations that govern funding, to make sure the DoD’s resources can make the most impact.

As a financial analyst on our team, you’ll work on a financial management strategy to help your client’s project succeed. You’ll work with your team to build an actionable plan for your client to secure the funding needed to achieve their goals. This is an opportunity for you to learn the laws, regulations, and policies that will help your client develop well-formed requirements. Once the funding is in place, you’ll make sure the funding is used efficiently through consistent tracking and communication with senior management. This is your chance to use your skills in compiling and analyzing financial information while furthering your financial and business analysis experience. You’ll develop innovative solutions to complex problems and apply advanced consulting technical expertise and full industry knowledge. You’ll work without considerable direction and mentor junior team members.
