Our ANZ Rail Centre of Excellence business is renowned for our technical consulting and project delivery expertise. We have a strong project pipeline and as we continue winning work, we are seeking to appoint a number of Project & Design Managers in our Rail team.

Based in New Zealand (Auckland / Christchurch or Wellington) and reporting to the Track & Delivery Rail Leader for ANZ, you'll provide engineering design and project management support on a variety of complex multidisciplinary projects.

You will be instrumental in delivering projects that exceed both client and Jacobs’ expectations whilst developing and implementing innovative initiatives to maintain our market leading status in the rail sector.

Here’s What You’ll Need :

A key attribute of the successful candidate will be the ability to foster inclusive behaviours to achieve industry leading and innovative business outcomes in the rail sector.

Additional remit in the role :

  • Business development : identify and evaluate pursuits, lead proposal efforts and interview teams
  • Serve as the Project Manager or Design Manager on small to medium sized rail projects
