The Walsh Group Construction Assistant Project Manager in Chicago, Illinois
Walsh is currently seeking an Assistant Project Manager for the Midwest Heavy Highway Division in Chicago, IL.
Does the idea of working on large, well-known projects bring out the best in you? Do you expect high quality—and high quantity—work from yourself and others? Are you an up-and-coming Project Engineer who always wants to do more and do better? If so, we’ve got what you’re looking for.
The Walsh Group is a family of companies united by a shared dedication to deliver exceptional service, standards and safety. Our Assistant Project Managers share and collect helpful resources and share information broadly across work teams. Are you always on the hunt for better ways of doing things? Do you soak up information so you can make better decisions? Walsh Assistant Project Managers are certainly confident enough to take necessary risks, but they always approach such risks carefully and cautiously.
Are you someone who trusts your instincts and has confidence in your ability to grow as a leader? When you see potential in others, do you invest in it? The Walsh Group began as a small carpentry business and has grown over four generations of family ownership to be a multi-billion dollar contracting company. We’re looking for Assistant Project Managers that want to grow and develop themselves into continually more impactful roles.
Are you a Project Engineer that is ready to make a change for the better? Are you someone who can go with the flow of change, but also has the capacity to eventually control and lead it?
