Project Manager – $80M Arts Project

Root Partnerships is one of Australia’s leading project advisory and project management practices, defining and delivering some of the most iconic and challenging projects in our community, like Western Sydney Airport and The Sydney Opera House.


We work across a diverse portfolio including Arts, Cultural, Civil, Education, Health, Commercial and other Social Infrastructure building projects. We not only do end to end delivery of projects but we provide high level strategic advice to clients at the front end of major construction projects.

We are looking for a Project Manager to join our busy team in Sydney. The initial project, this role would be assigned to is a $80M Arts project that would be in the construction stage of its project life cycle out on site.

We are looking for someone who has worked for a head contractor or who has worked for another client side consultancy but has strong skills in the project delivery stage (i.e. construction phase) and therefore who would have the requisite skills to oversee the project and the contractor whilst this project is in construction. This would suit someone who is keen to make the transition from head contracting to a client side project management role or perhaps someone who has strong delivery skills who is currently in a client side role. We are looking for someone who has 7+ years industry experience and who has been living and working in Australia for the last 4 years.

  • Experience in managing projects within agreed budgets and project processes.
