Senior Project Manager

Engineering and Construction
Christchurch, Canterbury
September 16, 2020
  • Well established contracting business 
  • Excellent pipeline of work
  • Great scope to advance your career

Our client is a highly successful and well established Christchurch based civil construction business. Having stood the test of time due to their focus on customer service, delivering a quality product and trustworthiness, they have gained a strong reputation for quality workmanship, reliability, and service. With a healthy pipeline of forward works, they now have an opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic Senior Project Manager on the path to Senior Management.

The Senior Project Manager role is one with a clear and defined career pathway so if you are wanting to lead a team and move into management, this will provide you that opportunity. With responsibility for project delivery you will be part of a motivated wider team of Project Managers, Estimators and Quantity Surveyors. Along with the onsite construction staff, you will gain exposure to tendering/negotiating the new project opportunities right through to the successful delivery of new subdivision developments and other infrastructure, drainage and road construction projects. These projects are delivered with a combination of direct labour and subcontracted resources and so skills in managing people along with the proven ability in planning and programming are critical selection criteria.

In seeking applications we are looking for experienced Senior Project/Contracts Managers who can offer a solid range of technical and project management skills working predominantly in other civil construction based industries, with good systems knowledge and strong attention to detail. Qualifications in engineering disciplines are preferred, but not absolutely essential and where you happen to have proven management experience in other water, drainage and road construction project delivery that will be highly advantageous. We are then looking to identify those candidates that are self-confident, who are aspirational about leading staff and working closely with clients while also being highly motivated in further developing their careers.

The remuneration package for this role is attractive and as indicated, the scope for development is excellent.

If this is the next opportunity you have been looking for to advance your career with a strong and growing business, then apply now!
