About us

At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for New Zealand. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years' time.

The role

As Senior Project Manager (Complex), you will lead and deliver the forward work plan for projects and contribute to the Transport Agency's vision of efficiently delivering an integrated, safe, responsive and sustainable transport system, to create great journeys to keep New Zealand moving.

This is where your strong relationship skills will come to the fore.

As a Senior Project Manager (Complex) you will think and work strategically,  drawing on your extensive project management and leadership experience to ensure that the forward work plan for the projects you are involved in contribute to the Transport Agency's vision of creating safer journeys for New Zealanders. The work we do will truly make a difference to New Zealanders.

To be successful in this role you will offer:

  • At least 10 years' experience in project management, including programme, financial and risk management
  • The ability to develop projects applying strong understanding of legislation and the business case approach
  • Experience in managing contracts within the civil engineering industry and a sound understanding of NZS3910
  • A collaborative and team focussed approach to project development
