It?s an exciting time for CGI in Atlantic Canada; we are thrilled to have a position that has become available for a beginner project manager to join our professional consulting team within our Atlantic Business Unit (ABU).

This is an opportunity for growth and to be coached and mentored by professional and experienced project managers to ensure a rigid and disciplined foundation to build a career as a project manager.
