Ideally based in Christchurch, with travel as required, we have a permanent vacancy for a dynamic, self-starting and self-sufficient Project Manager who will be responsible for delivering complex, multi-disciplined projects across Aotearoa.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll play a key role in leading project teams through the design, construction and commissioning phases of projects within our Substations – whether that be Primary Asset replacements, Protection or Substation Management Systems upgrades.
Safety during delivery activities is an imperative and you’ll partner with our service providers to ensure robust systems and practices are in place. You’ll also contribute to improving asset quality and maximising system reliability
Using your street smarts to seek to understand the drivers of cost and quality in constructing our assets, you’ll pursue efficiencies and sustainable cost reductions while ensuring outcomes meet our high asset performance expectations.
With the customer at the heart of everything we do, you will drive customer value with an eye on the overriding value to New Zealand.
What we’re looking for
Naturally you are someone who takes an enterprise-wide view and has the curiosity to question and look beyond the obvious to seek alternatives. You’ll understand the rules, acknowledge the limits of your delegated authority but be able to work the grey areas where needed!
Calm and composed under pressure, you’re a go-getter that uses every ounce of your knowledge and experience to get things done. You can work with, and motivate, a broad range of people and personalities to deliver an outcome.
You thrive working from a mobile office in a role that’s not your typical 9-5.
