Elliott Gray work hard to partner with employers who truly make a difference to our corner of the world, and this one is a cracker!
 
We have partnered with the incredible team at ANU Enterprise again - this time to find them you! A hands-on Project Manager, you will join the team and take on the responsibility for the coordination, management, and delivery of a portfolio of projects, predominantly in the sciences sector!

This isn't your ordinary PM role. This isn’t just based purely on your technical PM experience, instead we also want those natural project managers who instinctively understand how to align moving pieces, engage complex stakeholder groups, and do it all to budget with the right resources.

As Project Manager in this initial 12-month contract, you will work predominately to one large scale project with a focus on the science sector. You will lead the project delivery phase, ensuring projects are delivered on time, to budget and to high quality standard compliant with contracted obligations.

I know what you are thinking - this sounds great, but do I have the background they need? The answer is yes if you have managed projects, with multiple stakeholders, and excel at gaining credibility and managing for outcomes.

Your role will include all aspects of project management including personnel, subcontracting, risk management, financial, planning, deliverables and reporting. You are also a skilled contract manager, comfortable in the effective management of striking the balance between client needs and contract requirements.

Your background can be varied, and from a variety of sectors. Prior experience managing complex projects is your huge advantage! Personally you are a real do-er, this is what will set you aside from others. Your desire to roll up your sleeves and jump in to work alongside your project team will ensure your success. Adaptable in nature, you easily transition from hands-on work to high-level stakeholder management, able to effectively identify opportunities that ensure you have a seat at the table in key stakeholder meetings.

Qualifications/Certifications? As mentioned earlier - we are looking for work experience and natural skill predominately. BUT, your formal PM qual will be your advantage.
 
Whilst this position is offered initially on a 12-month contract basis, there is scope for extension dependent on the outcomes produced for this client!
