In January, Marion, Project Manager/ Owner at Viapost, spoke to us about her job.

What is a Project Manager/ Owner ?

"When I arrived at Viapost a year ago, my job was to create the link between IT tools and their users" says Marion.  At Viapost, a logistics and transport player, she works on two transport software used by both partner carriers and employees. The first is dedicated to freight, and the second to palletised messaging. "I didn't specialise in transportation, I discovered this area after school and I was very attracted to project management" explains Marion.


Being a Project Manager/ Owner means knowing how to define the project perimeter so that you can then assign tasks to available resources while anticipating risks.
 

"When I arrived at Viapost, the position met my expectations perfectly. I like the fact that there are a lot of opportunities. We are lucky to be able to work with different trades during our projects"
