Project Manager - Property Services

Full Time - 40 hours per week

Closing Date: 31/7/2019

Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they’ll tell you that there’s something indescribably special about our city. It’s small enough to feel like you’re part of a community, but big enough to ensure that there’s always something going on. From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, Dunedin has so much to offer, so why not come and feel just how special it is?

We are seeking an enthusiastic and professional individual to join our skilled Property Services team.

Reporting to the Programme Manager, you will be responsible for the delivery of numerous and diverse projects, from organising new flooring in a city museum, to the construction of new housing for older people.

You will:

  • have a fantastic attitude
  • have great attention to detail
  • have extensive project management experience
  • possess well developed communication skills
  • be a great team player.

Ideally you will possess experience delivering projects in the public sector. You will have exceptional planning and organisational skills, the ability to motivate and lead a team of contractors on a project, and the ability to plan and deliver effectively in a complex and sometimes pressured environment.

If this exciting opportunity sounds like you, and you are a team player who can add value to the Property Services team, we look forward to hearing from you.

Applications close Wednesday 31st July 2019.
