Good day, we are a US based furniture retail/wholesale company, that produces and imports various furniture products to the US.  Our company is currently working with a new factory based out of India (Gujarat), to manufacture and produce OEM furniture for our company.  We are currently in search of a new project manager/consultant that can oversee and handle our India project operations.

This job will consist of a lot of various duties in which the right individual will need to be skilled in, but not limited to:

*Project strategizing, planning, coordination, and management
*Process start-up assistance in India
*Working directly with the factory coordinating production, product quality and assurance,
  visiting the factory when needed.
*Work directly with designers
*Sourcing and “wholesale” negotiating with raw materials suppliers locally and possibly
  abroad.
*Shipping coordination and management
*Oversees all task
*Administration
*Single point of contact
*And etc.. (whatever is needed to be successful)

We prefer an individual or source that is experienced and skilled in the luxury furniture market, so they already have the knowledge and skill set of knowing what to look for in furniture details, and build quality (but it’s not a requirement), along with having very impressive project management skills and experience.  This is a new factory and territory we will be working in, until we are fully set up and established in India and have a normal production schedule in place, project manager must be budget friendly to work with, and we will only need to utilize project manager on an as needed part-time basis in the beginning, but it will quickly grow into full-time management opportunity with a lot of growth potential.  So if interested and would like to discuss more please advise with more detailed information.

Thanks,
