    The ADMs are responsible for developing effective relationships and trust with schools and other internal and external stakeholders, and ensuring that consultants are working effectively and efficiently to deliver school infrastructure projects on time, to budget and to scope as set out in the project brief.

    Key skills :

  • Stakeholder relationship management with a diverse group of stakeholders
  • Problem solving and collaboration to deliver great results with maximum impact
  • About you

    You are a junior level Project Manager with relevant construction knowledge, and a strong track record of using project management methodologies and organisational processes to achieve efficient outcomes, manage risks and implement lessons learnt.

    You will be familiar with the lifecycle of a construction project (project inception to handover / commissioning).

    You relish the opportunity to shape how we work to help us provide the best learning environments for New Zealand’s future generations and can hit the ground running in this critical role.

    If you’d like to bring your skills to a rewarding role within an organisation that’s continuously reaching goals and striving for a better future for New Zealand, we’d love to hear from you.
