The Role

Working in a collaborative and influential position, you will work with a multi-disciplinary team of internal and external stakeholders to develop brown and greenfield sites. With a full-scope level of responsibility for strategic and feasibility analysis, you will also direct contractual negotiations, the management of risk and budget, construction delivery, handover and ongoing asset governance.
Key responsibilities include:
  • Overseeing the complete development process from concept design to completion and handover
  • Coordination of multi-functional teams delivering projects on time, to budget and quality standards
  • Overseeing the development of feasibility analysis and investment proposals for Board presentation
  • Negotiation of necessary approvals and permits

  • Ongoing reviews and forecasting of cashflow and funding requirements
The Ideal Candidate
You will demonstrate the proven ability to deliver complex brown and greenfield housing and community precinct developments in excess of $50M in value. The ability to lead and influence teams on major projects is critical, and you must also have advanced project management expertise. You should be a proven leader with a track record of presenting business cases at Board level, plus strong contract negotiation skills.
