Project Coordinator – Job Description
The Project coordinator will be in charge of assisting our project managers and technical leads in organizing ongoing projects. They will help to make sure all team members and departments have what is needed to meet the deadlines and milestones set by the project manager. In order to do this, project coordinators must be familiar with all aspects of the project, including all short and long-term goals, stakeholder involvement, project schedules and budgets.
What you will be responsible for:
- Maintaining and monitoring project plans, project schedules, work hours, budgets and expenditures.
- Organizing, attending and participating in stakeholder meetings.
- Documenting and following up on important actions and decisions from meetings.
- Preparing necessary presentation materials for meetings.
- Ensuring project deadlines are met.
- Determining project changes.
- Providing administrative support as needed.
- Undertaking project tasks as required.
- Ensuring projects adhere to frameworks and all documentation is maintained appropriately for each project.
- Ensure stakeholder views are managed.
- Chair and facilitate meetings where appropriate and distribute minutes to all project team members.
What you bring to the table:
- Detail Oriented: Attention to detail is critical when you’re overseeing so many different aspects of the project, all of which are important to its well-being and success. Be sure to highlight this aspect on your project coordinator resume.
- Dependable: The project manager is going to depend on the project coordinator to handle the minutia of the project’s management, and therefore, it’s crucial that the project coordinator is dependable and can be relied on to uphold their responsibilities without having to be micromanaged.
- Good Communicator: Think of the project coordinator as the bridge connecting the project manager to various other project members, then you can see the importance of having superior communications skills. They need to understand the message and deliver it clearly to the target audience.
- Productive: The project demands productivity from its participants, and this is especially true for the project coordinator. Coordinators are often the grease the keeps the wheels of the project turning, so it’s doubly important that they’re productive.
- Get Things Done: The last thing a project manager wants is a project coordinator who is given a task and then doesn’t follow-through. The project coordinator has a great deal of autonomy, but if they can’t get things done, then its all for naught. The ability to get things done is probably the biggest requirement on a project coordinator job description.
