If you want to experience working with a local and well-established Construction Company; large enough to deliver excellence across multiple disciplines whilst remaining small enough to have a family feel, then this could be the role for you.

Our Blenheim Simcox Division team has a very strong name and reputation built up over its 35-year history. It has been a successful part of the Isaac Group now for two years and many of the formerly Isaac Christchurch based staff have enjoyed relocation to Blenheim and the Simcox team. The Simcox team currently has two Senior Project Managers and two very capable young Project Engineers. We are looking for another experienced Project Manager comfortable with tendering and delivering contracts up to $5M.

The Role

From time to time, we secure work in the Nelson, Tasman and Kaikoura Districts with some requirement for Project Managers to drive in/out or stay away for short to medium periods of time, whichever is the best strategy in each case. An ability to be flexible with securing and managing projects across the top of the South Island is desirable.

The main focus of this role will be to lead and manage tenders and projects across Marlborough and the surrounding regions. This will include working closely with clients, Simcox and Isaac crews/staff, subcontractors, suppliers, Councils and NZTA.

  • Day-to-day management of civil construction projects

  • Experience managing and leading staff
  • A good knowledge of modern estimating and construction management practices
