Senior Project Manager Complex | Northland
Senior Project Manager Complex
- Project variety in a committed, friendly and professional team
- Lead best practice project management
- Whangarei location
At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for New Zealand. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years' time.
Northland in particular is one of New Zealand's rapidly developing regions - in terms of population and economic growth. We're now facing our largest programme of work in the transport sector over the next five years.
As Senior Project Manager (Complex), you will think and work strategically, drawing on your extensive project management and leadership experience to contribute to the Transport Agency's vision of efficiently delivering an integrated, safe, responsive and sustainable transport system. It's all about creating great journeys to keep New Zealand moving and the work we do will truly make a difference to New Zealanders.
This is a unique opportunity to use your first rate engineering and management skills to contribute to the planning and development of transport networks in New Zealand. The role is multi-facetted, requiring strong leadership qualities to manage our suppliers' project teams. This will involve close collaboration and engagement with other teams in the Transport Agency, local authorities, and a variety of stakeholders and partners. This is where your strong relationship skills will be key.
Under the Northland Delivery Framework – NZTA's pilot model for Provincial Growth - you'll be part of an innovative procurement environment, working in partnership with our suppliers to deliver amazing outcomes. You'll be working with a team based in Whangarei but covering an area from the Cape to Puhoi. From Kaeo Bridge in Doubtless Bay to safety projects in Bream Bay, and you'll have heaps of variety as well as beautiful scenery.
The team at NZTA is growing and we're looking for someone who has exceptional project management skills and the drive and ambition to succeed, if this sounds like you apply today.
What you will bring
To be successful in this role you will offer:
- Significant experience in project management, including programme, financial and risk management
- The ability to develop projects applying strong understanding of legislation and the business case approach
- Experience in managing contracts within the civil engineering industry and a sound understanding of NZS3910
- A collaborative and team focussed approach to project development
- Proven leadership skills
- Exceptional stakeholder management skills
An engineering qualification and project management experience within the transport/engineering sector is desirable, as is a Chartered Professional Engineering qualification (CPEng or equivalent) and a professional membership of Engineering New Zealand.
