Roles within the Finance Organization
Our mission is to model the highest standard of excellence in providing customer value through focus on people, performance and processes. Join our team and take a step toward solving complex challenges facing our country and the world.
We are looking for candidates in the following areas:
Contracts Negotiator: Lockheed Martin relies on Contracts Negotiators to understand and interpret contracts that will impact our business. The negotiation team is responsible for preparing proposal responses to solicitations, administrating contracts, and ensuring fulfillment of a contract is in accordance with our policies. We look to them to advise on contractual rights, obligations, and risks by analyzing data from historical contract information. Contracts Negotiators are the bridge between what our customer wants and what is best for our organization.
Financial Analyst: The primary focus of our Financial Analysts is managing the business’s financial performance from proposal through contract execution and closeout. During this process, analysts create long range plans for programs including orders, sales, profit, and cash. Maintaining accurate records of expenditures, directing costs projections, and submitting timely requests for additional funding is an essential component of this role.
Finance Manager: Behind every great team is an effective leader. Our financial managers not only maintain oversight of their team, but they are also required to closely coordinate with various teams and entities, including government agencies, Program Managers, Program Finance Managers, Program Planning Managers, and other support personnel. A core component of this role is ensuring compliant Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS) implementation. This project management technique influences procedures, independent business reviews, system validation, and data analytics. Experience implementing EVMS, as well as the ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment with minimal guidance, is what make these leaders exceptional.
Program Planner: An integral part of our business success, planners help to move programs forward. Using program summaries, our planners develop integrated master schedules, perform risk analysis, identify any critical path issues, and resolve network logic conflicts. They are also active participants in providing support for proposals and assessing progress when customer negotiations arise. If recommendations for corrective action are needed, we depend on our planners to suggest schedule revisions, fund allocations, and/or work requirements to get the program back on track.
Program Planner Manager: Overseeing the master planning team while acting as the point of contact for the business area and senior management requires key experience. Our Master Planning and Scheduling (MP&S) Managers guide their teams based on organizational goals and company policy. Not only are they responsible for managing personnel assignments, they are also responsible for coordinating with multiple sites and customers on deliverables. Experience in Earned Value Management, the capture/proposal management process, leading teams on DFAR programs, and Defense Contract Management Agency surveillances, are some of the qualifications necessary to be a MP&S Manager.
Property Analyst: Maintaining positive working relationships with both internal and external customers is key for our Property Analysts. They oversee, manage, and analyze activities associated with disposition, Item Unique Identification (IUID) reporting, and property loss reports. When complex problems arise, our analysts work to develop solutions through interaction with custodians, the customer, and team members. Knowledge of Principles of Property Management and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) as applied to property acquisition, use, and disposition, guide decisions in this role. In addition to using Microsoft Office programs, our analysts are also required to work in customer applications such as eTools and PCARSS in order to be successful in completing projects.
Property Analyst Manager: Developing solutions to a variety of complex problems is a typical challenge for Property Analyst Managers. Our managers oversee activities associated with property business systems, ensuring company,customer, and U.S. Government property are managed in accordance with applicable regulations and policies. Compliance is of highest importance when doing business with both domestic and international entities. These managers are expected to build strong relationships with customers internally and externally while leading represented employees in their daily tasks.
Proposal Analyst: A strong analytical orientation is what our Proposal Analysts pride themselves on to accomplish day-to-day tasks. They are responsible for pricing activities including repairs, sustainment, and production proposals. While overseeing the entire proposal process, we rely on them to coordinate divisional inputs, guide the proposal through the management review process, provide government audit support, fact-finding, negotiating and certification. Working on proposals can be a daunting process, but with keen attention to detail and a self-starter attitude, our analysts are able to support multiple contracts across a variety of programs.
