Job Description

This opportunity is with a well established principal contractor who is a leader within a specific market niche to whom they been providing genuine design and construct services for well over fifteen years now.
 It's this niche market sector that has allowed it to operate as a reliable and steady contractor through the ups and downs of the construction market sector. Well, known, financially solid, they are a reputable mid-tier contractor who provides a stable workplace for a small team where long term staff retention is a key aspect of their culture.

We currently have a Contract Administrator role available for experienced and stable Contracts Administrator with an initial focus on a $10M "greenfield"  project that requires immediate sub-contractor procurement activity focus.
 Your experience to date will clearly demonstrate your capacity to successfully apply the three pillars of Contract Administration - Financial Management, Contracts Management & Commercial Management, ideally within an environment where you are a Doer, not just a delegator.
Delivering projects from $500K to $15M, candidates ideal for this role will embrace the "all hands on deck" approach needed from time to time to ensure all contracting objectives are met.
Typically applicants will have tertiary qualifications in Quantity Surveying, Construction Management or Building; it is also ideal that you have experience working in a CHEOPS led environment. You will possess appx five years of experience in a similar role.

Success to date for this contractor has been off the back of long term "repeat business" via solid client/contractor relationships. They are very "client-centric" and work in a very consultative manner with their clients.  To be successful in this role you will need to be comfortable embracing a similar culture, those with a bombastic and combative approach to contract management will not suit this culture.

Initial six months fixed term contract providing an opportunity to impress with a significant possibility of progressing to a full-time opportunity subject to performance and project demand.
This is not a role for a candidate seeking to move up the ranks of construction management ladder, more so it's ideal for a contracts management specialist who is content at Senior C.A level and seeks a challenging yet stable environment.
Please respond with your updated resume in the first instance and we will respond accordingly.
