job description

My client is one of Australia’s most successful and experienced Retail builders that have built a reputation by delivering challenge projects ahead of time and under budget. With the Retail sector booming the company has decided to set up a specialist non EBA division to focus on smaller boutique projects valued below $20m. The division has already delivered a number of hi profile projects and are looking to grow headcount. This is a unique role to join a company focused on smaller projects but with proven Tier 2 processes and systems.

About the Role

The Directors of the company are passionate, progressive and above all professional and as part of their next stage of growth they are now seeking to appoint a Junior PM / experienced Contracts Administrator to join the team and assist in the delivery of these projects. As PM you will look after 2 projects concurrently with support of a dedicated CA and great site team.


As Project Manager, you will be responsible for managing all time, budget and quality aspects of building project as well as looking after the financials. You will run the project but have the support and guidance from the director. Your core duties in this role will encompass:

  • Construction Programming
  • Client & Stakeholder Liaison
  • Managing Site Teams and Personnel
  • Ensuring best practise in QA, OH&S and IR
  • Subcontract management and Labour Resourcing

The Candidate

The right candidate will be a proven Contract Administrator with between 3-6 years experience. You will be someone that has the attributes and desire to take the next step into a PM role.

Other core skills will include:

  • Procure, package and negotiate sub-contracts through to final account
  • Administration of all claims, variations, progress payments and contract correspondence
  • Strong budget management and reporting

This is a fantastic role for someone to take the next step in their career and begin managing projects outright, or for a more experienced individual to join a professional company that is growing! A salary package in the $120k - $140k range is available, dependent upon experience.
