My client is a leading and award-winning Civil contractor who have plenty of work on the books and a positive future workload. Due to this they are expanding and are looking for an experienced Commercial Manager to join the team.

This role can either be based in Tauranga OR Hamilton.

These regions are both seeing significant growth, the revenue currently sitting at >$50M and expected to increase by >40% over the next 5 years.

This is a dynamic role, and a great opportunity for the right person to take the lead and initiative on developing and implementing strategies and governance for commercial reporting, delivery and risk awareness. As such, you will have a key part to play in the commercial aspects around securing and setting up projects, then working with the delivery teams and stakeholders to maximise the long term return to their business.

About you:

  • You offer a strong and proven commercial track record within the infrastructure industry
  • You will demonstrate an ability to meet financial reporting deadlines and work at pace to deliver outstanding results
  • You will be adept at realising their contractual entitlements and pursue them with vigour, whilst maintaining proactive and collaborative relationships with Clients
  • You have a QS background (or similar), and will be someone who has developed significant construction based experience, with an interest in risk and opportunity
  • Able to take full commercial responsibility for all aspects of project performance, delivery and reporting
  • Have a concise communication style, with the ability to negotiate with and influence stakeholders
  • A mind for numbers – interpreting and analysing data, understanding and relaying commercial risk factors, devising robust and astute recommendations
  • Similarly you will be able to offer advice and support to other project functions, in order for them to better identify and manage project cost and commercial risks
  • You offer excellent leadership capability and provide support, coaching and guidance to the commercial/QS team that you will need to grow

My client’s preference is for someone who has worked in a Commercial Manager position previously within the NZ construction sector, with a bigger picture view allowing you to positively interact with and influence others. You will understand the linkages between different delivery aspects and you will be someone who offers a very real ‘roll your sleeves’ up approach in relation to getting involved with the procurement and delivery teams. This will see you developing a strong rapport with the people and teams that contribute towards the successful award of a project. 

If you meet this criteria and are keen to hear more about this role and my client, please either apply to this advert or contact me, Hannah Carroll on – OR (07) 574 2712
