Be a part of a revolutionary change Times are changing at PMI. We’ve chosen to do something big. The world expects us to act responsibly. And we are doing just that by transforming our business and building our future on one clear purpose – to deliver a smoke-free future. This transformation will revolutionise every area of our business. The products we sell. Where we sell them. How they’re manufactured and delivered. The way we talk to our customers and engage with society. It’s the perfect setting place to start your career. As you take your first steps, you’ll have the backing of a multinational business combined with the freedom of a start-up. You’ll bring a positive mindset and fresh perspective to projects that can make a huge difference to so many. About the TEAM We are the Governance and Project Excellence team, under the Life Sciences Portfolio and Program Delivery discipline. Our mission is to develop and implement a data-driven governance in the Life Sciences function, with focus on the digitalization of the project portfolio, agile intake, budget and cost management processes, and value-added project management principles. Several highly skilled professionals are supporting this mission: the Governance and Business Coordinator, the Manager of Portfolio and Project Intelligence and her team, the Manager Delivery Excellence & Business Planning and his team, as well as the Managers of Innovation Programs & Projects. Who we’re looking for • Strong analytical skills • Theoretical and practical knowledge of AI and deep learning and ability to create dedicated AI algorithms, exception reports and trend reports • Big picture mindset and still focus to details • Understanding/Experience of Project Management would be a plus Roles & Objectives In connection with our transformation, we started to use a new “Portfolio and Project Management” tool, allowing us to manage the schedule, people allocation and financials for each project in our portfolio. This generates valuable data, which now can provide historic knowledge about our initiatives, as well as trends and forecasts. The idea of the internship is to use at maximum the data available, for example: - Ensure data cleaning and check them through automation (data quality) - Use these data for forecasting and scenario making We are looking for practical application of a few use cases we have prepared, as well as the identification and implementation of further opportunities for supervised learning to enhance automation and scenario creation, using these areas as a starting point: • Validate data quality according to evolutive criteria set by each central function; • Identify and remediate gaps in project maturity; • Collect historic performance data and establish portfolio forecasting; • Perform what-if scenarios to allow prioritization based on cost, resources and benefits. What we offer Our success depends on our talented employees who come to work here every single day with a sense of purpose and an appetite for progress. Join PMI and you too can: • Seize the freedom to shape your future and ours. We’ll empower you to take risks, experiment and explore. • Be part of an inclusive, diverse culture, where everyone’s contribution is respected; collaborate with some of the world’s best people and feel like you belong. • Pursue your ambitions and develop your skills with a global business –our staggering size and scale provides endless opportunities to progress. • Take pride in delivering our promise to society: to deliver a smoke-free future.
