Job Description

The company
You will be working with a leading contractor with both a national and international presence. The business has seen strong growth over the past couple of years, with a solid workbook in place and a strong pipeline, you will be joining this business at an exciting time. This company has a diverse range of projects across the Transport, Mining, Marine, Water, Industrial and Oil & Gas sectors, and a strong reputation for delivering challenging projects well. 
The role
With freshly awarded contracts and an already busy workbook, a new opportunity has been created for a Senior Project Manager to join the business in delivering these projects. Your initial assignment will be in Victoria's booming rail sector, working within one of the Level Crossing Removal Alliances across Melbourne. With the Victorian government having expanded the Level Crossing Removal Program from 50 to 75 crossings, the work is stable and ongoing over the coming years.
You will be working with an experienced and highly regarded team on the alliance, and have the opportunity to continue to develop your skillset under mentorship from strong leaders in the field. With a strong focus on innovation and a reputation for delivering complex projects, you will find the role both challenging and rewarding.
You will need
To be successful you will be a degree qualified civil engineer (or similar), with at least 15 years’ experience industry experience, predominantly within the transport infrastructure environment (road and/or rail). Ideally, you will have experience working on major projects within the rail environment. To be successful in this role, you will have had at least 5 years' experience in a project leadership role, and have had experience managing projects both inwardly (your team) and outwardly (clients & stakeholders).
You will have, and be given, full accountability and responsibility for 2 or 3 projects within the alliance. This is a fantastic opportunity to continue to build a strong reputation for yourself as a Senior Project Manager on major projects and position yourself for future opportunities within the business.
You will have the support of a construction Manager below you, to assist with the day to day running of the site, and an experienced and supportive structure above if/when required. The role is client-facing, giving you the opportunity to build your name and reputation both internally and externally within the industry.
As important as the qualifications and experience (if not more so) is your attitude. You will have strong leadership skills & emotional intelligence and enjoy working within a high performing team.
As you will be working with a progressive company, you will need the ability to think laterally and you will have a desire to strive for continuous improvement, both in construction methodology and in team dynamics. You will have strong communication skills and the ability to build and foster strong relationships both externally (with clients, subcontractors and stakeholders) and internally (with your project team and broader business).
What's in it for you?
In return for your efforts, of course, you will be rewarded with a strong salary package, but what you'll really love are the career opportunities within a leading and innovative company, working with highly regarded & experienced leaders and the strong team-oriented environment. 
You will be joining a contractor with a strong focus on moving forward and being at the forefront of the industry, not only in design and construction methodology, but also in how they look after their people.
