job description

Work as the Senior Site Manager on a challenging 5 level School

Large National Tier 2 Commercial Builder

Great supportive team and a good work life balance

My client is a leading national Tier 2 construction company successfully delivering projects across Australia. Since the company was established in 1980 they have completed over 3000 projects valued in excess of $8 billion. With annual revenues in excess of $700 million and 400 direct employees they are rated as one of Australia’s top 100 private companies.

About the Role

As the Senior Site Manager with this group, you will report to the Construction Manager and work closely with the nominated Project Manager and be supported by a 2IC Foreman and dedicated Contracts Administrator. The project you will undertake is a $45m 5 level School in South Melbourne. Once complete you will be running projects typically valued between $40m-$80m in and around Melbourne.


As Site Manager you will have full responsibility for the planning, organising and managing the overall site. As well as the following;

  • Site control trade coordination
  • Works and program planning
  • Induction and safety analysis
  • Material purchase
  • Sub contractor selection & supervision
  • Project development
  • Certification of occupancy

Skills and Experience

This is a great opportunity for an experienced Senior Site Manager who is looking to further their career with a builder that will give them the autonomy and support so you can deliver projects. It would best suit either a Site Manager coming from a Tier 1 that wants to step down to smaller projects or a Senior Site Manager from a similar Tier 2 group that has proven experience delivering similar $40m + projects.

To be successful in your application you must have the following experience;

  • Proven Site Management experience
  • with a proven track record of delivering similar projects valued over $40m


The quality of my client’s people clearly differentiates them from their competitors. They invest in their people to facilitate long term growth and development of the organisation and the technical skills they offer. Over 40% of current employees have tenure in excess of 7 years and staff turnover levels are exceptionally low. This provides continuity in relationships with clients and consistency in delivery across the business.


  • Genuine opportunity to grow and develop your career with a leading builder
  • Start with a $45m project
  • Work for a builder that fully resources projects and have the support of a team of Foreman
