The Company:

Our client is a fast-moving established player in multi-disciplinary commercial / corporate projects. They specialise in creating, designing and delivering full turnkey projects throughout the country and further afield, with offices in Australia as well as New Zealand.

Existing clients are some of the best known national and international companies from telecommunications to advertising / media companies. Others include government departments, requiring your specialised appreciation. This is a bigger world than most - very interesting, challenging and satisfying.  Here we have on offer a rare and highly sought after role, with an exciting future and the opportunity to belong to a successful and smart company.

The Situation:

Expansion of the project management team means that, with bigger projects and more people, this firm needs a solid, cool, calm and collected person to make sure the t's are crossed and the i's dotted, take ownership of the project administration and enjoy seeing the results.

The Role:

This role sits alongside Project Managers and involves taking ownership of the project administration across a few key projects. This means you get to action monitor and manage the processes driving the projects - the contracts, schedules, workflows, meetings approvals and confirmations.

This is a "design and project management" environment and this role covers the processes from client acquisition through proposals, concepts, tenders, contracts and into the delivery side - RFI's CI's stage payments and consent documentation will be under your watchful eye.

You will support the team and maintain order and accuracy throughout.


You will be an accomplished Project Administrator with experience in a construction or professional design consultancy work environment. You will very likely have familiarity with:

  • Construction tenders and contracts
  • Construction documentation (CI's RFQ's, RFIs etc. variations etc.)
  • Design drawings and documentation
  • Project control meetings and procedures
  • Quality aassurance processes
  • Financial monitoring and forecasting reports

As you may guess, this is a busy, buzzing place to work with plenty going on to light up your week. There is pace, pressure and of course rewards for the right person.

You will need to be an exceptionally well organised person, able to hit the proverbial running on contracts and project administration.  Any experience you have in a New Zealand or Australian engineering or architectural design environment will give you extra brownie points and likely make this a great fit.

On offer is a huge opportunity to move to a role which is so much more then "admin"  - see project born, take flight and delivered right to opening day, see you skills and understanding of a very dynamic sector increase and bring you more of the good things.

Are you ready to take ownership of this role? - then take a bit of action today!

Apply below, with your CV and a cover letter telling us a little bit about you. We will ask you a few questions, and get the ball rolling. What to have a chat?  Call Lachlan McNeill on 021 1130175 to find out more.
