Junior Project Manager-Utilities

Origin Energy –Junior Project Management

Origin Energy is a top 100 ASX listed company involved in gas and oil exploration and production, energy retailing, power generation and utility network management. The BOND Program was the integration of Sun Retail (Energex – A Queensland Electricity business) into Origin Energy. This program consisted of a number of line of business projects.

The Commercial & Industrial project focused on the integration of the corporate customers from Sun Retail into Origin Energy’s business. Due to the complexity of the project, a junior position became available to provide support in a number of key areas including but not limited to monitoring budget and project costs; identification (and updating) of risks & issues; action tracking and follow up. With the majority of the migration complete, a small category of customers was identified that were not suitable for standard migration processes. The establishment of a migration strategy and the coordination of the activities to achieve migration were added to the Junior Project Manager role.

Throughout the engagement Core Consulting Group was able to meet the changing needs of the customer and deliver significant benefits to the Senior Project Manager. The ability of the Junior Project Manager to use initiative and self direction freed up considerable time for the Senior Project Manager and allowed the project to be delivered in a timely manner.
