When you’re passionate about what you do and where you work, the rest comes easy. That’s the culture at Central 1 Credit Union, and that’s precisely what we’re looking for from you. Supporting nearly 200 member credit unions across British Columbia and Ontario, we’re the backbone of the credit union system in both provinces – taking care of everything from online services and product development, to payment processing, trade association services and more.
Our team of nearly 600 employees represent some of the most innovative, passionate individuals you’ll ever meet; people who honestly care about the organization, its members and each other. In other words, people who love what they do.
The Portfolio Manager will supervise a group of project managers providing mentorship, coaching, performance management and other people management responsibilities. You are also responsible for managing portfolio of projects and programs of significant size, complexity, longevity and impact, involving numerous components, a diverse range of stakeholders, and extensive risk. In addition, you will support the Project Management Office.
As the successful candidate, you need a combination of strong people management, subject-matter expertise and project, program, and portfolio management skills. You must possess an excellent track record of team leadership, communication, and interpersonal, as well as the capacity to work with cross-functional teams to accomplish overall portfolio goals. A bachelor’s degree (a master’s is preferred) in computer science, management or an IT leadership related discipline; specific consulting subject-matter expertise; and at least 10 years of experience managing portfolio of projects from inception to completion are required. A project management certification is strongly preferred, and experience in the financial services industry is an asset.
As much as we believe in working hard, we also believe in personal growth and taking time for ourselves. Accordingly, our total rewards philosophy amounts to one of the best compensation and benefits packages in the industry – from performance-based incentives and extended benefits, to training and education reimbursements, ample vacation time and staff mortgage discounts.
