Responsibilities will include:

  • Report to customers and provide internal/external reports of project outcomes,

  • Guide the development of project scope,
  • Plan and implement the project schedule,

  • Manage project resources through effective resource planning,
  • Provide training to staff and conduct reviews of their performance,
  • Oversee supply chain procurement activities to ensure quality and performance requirements are met,
  • Identify and manage the alleviation of project risks and the realisation of project opportunities

Skills needed:

  • Proven capacity to lead and mentor junior members,
  • 10+ years of experience working as a project manager with experience in successfully delivering complex electronic systems capabilities to Defence,
  • Hold an Engineering or Computer Science Bachelor Degree or equivalent,
  • Familiarity with the technical regulatory framework and governance requirements imposed by the Australian Defence Organisation will be highly beneficial.
  • Strong interpersonal and intercommunication skills for client/customer interactions would be highly desirable.

If you are bored working in a slow moving and restrictive environment, then this is for you. This role is for someone that enjoys a challenge, like to have an impact and wants more than the average PM role.
