As we approach spring the new civil season is almost underway and with new projects due to start a demand for experienced personnel is growing. This lead contractor is heavily involved with work around the Christchurch region and with a number of heavier civil projects in the immediate future there is an urgent need for two Project Managers with heavy civil experience.

Your experience will be in heavy civil and structural work and could include bridges, piling, water treatment plants, marine, pipelines, retaining walls and other concrete works up to a value of $10million. You will have a minimum of 10 years’ experience of site based project work under your belt and be looking to advance your career. This is clearly specialist work so experience with a recognised heavy civil contractor is a must.

As a Project Manager you will be comfortable leading a project both contractually and commercially and negotiating your team through the rough and smooth of the construction process. You will have good man management, both employees and subcontractors and have an excellent track record of developing a competitive but safe environment. You will be comfortable working closely with clients and stakeholders and be happy to get your hands dirty when the need arises.

Other desirable qualities include;

  • A degree or equivalent industry related qualification
  • Good communication skills and a professional attitude
  • A desire to develop your career with a main contractor
  • A can do, winning attitude

This is an immediate need so applications need to be made quickly. This opportunity is definitely open to overseas candidates so don’t hesitate to put your CV forward if this is of interest. If this position is for you then send an up to date and detailed CV to Phil at and or contact me on +6421 489 367.
