  • working with and communicating regularly to key stakeholders, internally and externally;
  • managing commercially astute procurement processes and contracts;
  • managing risk, WHS and project budgets; and,
  • proactively managing consultants and contractors performing work on behalf of Council.

 With appropriate tertiary qualifications, you will have a proven track record in managing and delivering civil, building and infrastructure projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.  You will have demonstrated experience in contemporary design and construction methodologies and in managing budgetary constraints.  A sound understanding of legislative and regulatory frameworks is essential.  Strong communication and negotiation skills will be critical to success in this role.
