The Opportunity

We currently have a Permanent Full-Time opportunity available for an experienced Program Manager to join the Planning and Programs team, within our Greater Sydney division.

This position forms part of a new Program Management team for the Noise Abatement Program (NAP) which provides noise mitigation treatment for residential dwellings and noise sensitive land-uses such as schools, hospitals and churches that are exposed to high levels of road traffic noise throughout NSW.

The role delivers effective and efficient scoping, scheduling, costing, stakeholder engagement, risk analysis and management, reporting, evaluation and integration, and collaborates with multidisciplinary stakeholders to deliver the programs of work to agreed milestones and business objectives.

What you will be involved in

  • Manage multiple complex, concurrent and interdependent, divisional, high-priority programs to ensure they are delivered to time, cost, quality, and scope.
