Functioning as an internal consulting group, the team works in a fast-paced, collaborative environment with direct interaction with the company's senior executives and decision-makers.

Overview

The Manager of OSM provides critical project management and analytical support to corporate, divisional and functional leaders at Southern. Assignments will include a mix of ongoing and project-based activities in which the Manager will be working within specified timelines. Specifically, providing support and managing projects in such areas as new business acquisition and market entry, supplier and customer relations, as well as developing analyses and presentation materials needed for Southern's senior executive meetings. The Manager may also be tasked with designing and generating financial and operational models and reports, developing solid analyses and insights into the drivers of trends. Additionally, the Manager may also focus on other areas of OSM as new projects and initiatives are launched, including delivering on one or more of the company's strategies related to sales, operations, marketing, talent management and innovation. The Manager will report to the Vice President, though daily activities will require work in a highly-collaborative team environment with fellow OSM team members. Periodic performance evaluations (mid-year Individual Development Plan reviews and annual appraisals) will be provided to ensure the Manager is meeting the expectations of OSM as well as their own growth objectives. As we identify and execute business improvement opportunities, the Manager will have the unique opportunity to work with seasoned business professionals to develop analytical, problem-solving and communication skills in a dynamic and exciting industry. This position could also serve as a stepping stone to a management position within OSM or another function or division within the company.
