Contracts Manager - Civil and Infrastructure - New Zealand

The civil and infrastructure sector in New Zealand has had a busy start to 2019 but that’s nothing compared to what is coming over the next few years and the foreseeable future. The industry is already working at capacity and before the end of the year two further projects in Auckland will be underway, with a combined value of over $4 billion. The number of senior managers required to complete those projects, as well as all the other work, is still being assessed but contractors know that the majority of those new hires will come from overseas.

As a Contracts Manager you will have a minimum of 10 years’ experience working as a contractor in the civil and infrastructure space. Projects vary and so your experience could be from any number of disciplines including water, road, tunnelling, structures, heavy civil, concrete, marine, earthworks, piling, maintenance, utilities, rail and general civils. As well is discipline, values of projects will also vary, ranging from $1 million to $1 billion plus; something to suit all levels of experience. In your role as Contracts Manager you will be comfortable managing multiple projects from a commercial and contractual perspective as well as liaising closely with all stakeholders including clients, local and national government bodies and the public. Other desirable qualities include,

  • A degree or equivalent industry based qualification
  • Site based experience with a contractor
  • Excellent man management skills
  • Great communication and IT skills
  • A good sense of humour and a drive to be successful

Whether it’s an opportunity to work overseas temporarily or the chance to make a permanent move, New Zealand has it all. Much of the work is focused on the North Island, around the large population areas, but there are also requirements in the provinces with opportunities to suit all tastes. Successful candidates will receive an excellent salary and package that includes a vehicle and relocation assistance.
