Senior Project Manager - Corporate Systems (Fixed-term)

Waikato Regional Council, Waikato

Their work is as diverse as the region they care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. They’ve got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting.

They have a great opportunity for an experienced Project Manager to join their team and play an integral part in the successful delivery of a large, transformational project seeking to adopt new processes and ways of working across Council, alongside the implementation of a new corporate software solution. While this project is focused on delivery of new ways of working and tools for their Finance, People and Capability, and Asset Management teams, it directly impacts all managers and staff across the entire organisation who also interact with these processes and associated tools.

They are looking for an influential and resilient individual with proven experience in the successful delivery of similar transformational projects - who can hit the ground running. Your proven ability to exercise judgement and succeed in complex, sensitive environments without losing a strong focus on driving robust delivery will be essential for this role. Exposure and experience operating in a government environment is not a must but extremely desirable.

To be considered for this role, it is anticipated that you will have tertiary qualifications and proven experience of being successful in similar project or programme management roles.  PMI or Prince2 certification would be advantageous.

The role is offered as a full time, fixed term role up until 30th June 2021.

Applications close Wednesday 1 July 2019.
