Job Description

  • Locally owned property developer
  • Projects include child care centres, service stations, and fast food outlets
  • A senior role in a small business - opportunity to make your mark

It's not often that an opportunity arises to work with a small, local property developer who have a confirmed pipeline of work that will take them through until mid-2021 and beyond.

Our client currently have more than 20,000 sqm of commercial space under construction. They predominantly build childcare centres, and to-date have created more than 1,800 childcare spaces across Melbourne. They also build service stations and fast food outlets, all for national tenants.

With an innovative and focused Managing Director leading the way, this company have more than 20 projects confirmed to start in the next 18 months, and are currently looking to bring on board a Senior Project Manager to help with delivery.

In your new role you will be working on a variety of jobs, managing multiple projects across metro Melbourne. These projects may have different builders, so you will need to be confident managing multiple builder relationships.

Due to the nature of the jobs, there are critical timeframes to meet, and penalties / black-out periods if you don't deliver on time. You must be able to manage builders to meet set timeframes. You will also need to manage quality, safety, and environmental strategies across different builders.

In order to be considered for this role you will have a proven track record in delivering similar project types to a high standard, either from a builder, developer, or client-side.

You will:

  • Have strong communication and stakeholder management skills
  • Be able to understand and interpret contracts and other legal documents
  • Have technical expertise through design and construction
  • Be able to establish quality standards

We are seeking someone who is able to strategically link back with what our client are trying to do as a business. You will be able to cost out issues effectively, and establish systems that will link back to the company's commercial and other objectives.

For the right person, this is an opportunity to really elevate your career and make a difference both with project delivery and company direction.

There is a very generous salary on offer (in line with experience).
