Our employees take pride in making a difference in people's lives through the work that we do. We're looking for people like you to help make it happen.

Job Summary:

CSA Group has an immediate opportunity for a Project Manager, Fuels and Appliances. The successful candidate could be based in Toronto, ON or Cleveland, OH.

In this challenging and rewarding role, you will interact with industry experts, manufacturers, academia, researchers, scientists, and government to develop leading edge standards' solutions, facilitate technical discussions and promote consensus amongst these leaders. CSA Group standards are developed by volunteer members through an accredited process and are used by a broad base of stakeholders to help enhance safety and sustainability for people and business.

The Fuels and Appliances team manages a diverse portfolio of standards and guidelines that relate to the safety, performance, and installation of fueled (gaseous, liquid, and solid) equipment and systems in Canada and the United States, with a key trend on supporting decarbonization efforts focusing on energy efficiency, bioenergy, and hydrogen blends.

Responsibilities:

  • Overseeing all aspects of assigned projects within the program area primarily involving the management of multiple Canadian, US, and international standards development committees.
  • Establishing timelines for project activities, determining project resource requirements (e.g. funding, personnel support), and assembling overall project schedules.
  • Utilizing strong business acumen and planning skills to determine and manage the resources (time, budget, quality, etc.) required to complete the project.
  • Developing and maintaining key stakeholder relationships (with academia, regulators, industry etc.).
  • Promoting and improving committee efficiency, evaluating member performance and taking action as required.
  • The management of standards development activities in existing areas, as well as conducting business development initiatives to expand the portfolio into new areas of the Program.
  • Consulting with clients and other areas of CSA Group's business to support development of standards and impact of standards.
  • Liaising with clients, management, Legal and Finance to compose proposals, contracts, and financial analysis for new projects.

This dynamic role requires a sound understanding of the various processes and procedures of CSA Group, many of which are mandated under the accreditation by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). A key element of the Project Manager role is to ensure that these processes and procedures are adhered to, and that project timelines are achieved within the defined budget. The role emphasizes management, leadership and soft skills; however, requires the ability to speak to complex subjects as a credible professional.

Education:

  • An advanced degree would be an asset.
  • Certified Project Management Professional (PMP) designation or equivalent designation would be an asset.

  • Minimum 3 years of experience in the fuels and appliances industry would be an asset.
  • Knowledge of relevant standards industry, regulatory environment, government policy, industry landscape, and funding programs/models would be an asset.
  • Experience working with volunteers and/or multi-stakeholder groups would be an asset; and
  • Experience in writing and presenting business plans and project proposals.

Skills:

  • Excellent Project Management, organizational and planning skills.
  • Strong ability to network, manage relationships at all levels, identify opportunities, and win new business.
  • Ability to successfully negotiate with stakeholders in challenging and demanding situations.
