  • Project administration
  • Working alongside the Site Manager and Project Manager for efficient project delivery, including Contractual & Commercial Risk, Revenue, Subcontractors & Major Suppliers, General Buying, and Reporting

    Once you are firmly established in the role, you will:

  • Implement the company’s Commercial and Business Procurement procedures on projects
  • Nurture and develop the skill/culture throughout the project, with a focus on any junior QS resources assigned to assist your duties

  • Experience an outdoor mecca that offers a landscape that is accessible for all ages, budgets, and ability
  • Partake in local cuisine that includes flat whites at their finest, Gold Medal winning mince & cheese pies that people queue for round the block for, and hokey pokey ice cream that other countries can only dream of
  • Slow down and enjoy a way of life that encourages bird watching (we literally try to count our kereru), BBQs with newfound friends (or a curry if that’s more your style), and feeling free to be yourself in a society that is doing its best to celebrate diversity
