Senior Project Manager

  • A cultural and architectural landmark in our nation's cultural capital
  • Affect and lead change during transformation of the precinct
  • Client-side Senior Project Manager

The Organisation:

Arts Centre Melbourne is Australia’s largest and busiest performing arts centre and the gateway to the thriving Melbourne Arts Precinct, home to one of the largest concentrations of cultural and creative organisations, practitioners and institutions in the world. As a national cultural and architectural landmark, Arts Centre Melbourne has showcased the best of Australian and international performing arts for over 30 years.

Its commitment is to bring people together to share in remarkable experiences through its core purpose to enrich the lives of Victorians- culturally, educationally, socially and economically. Each year it stages and presents more than 4,000 performances and events and welcomes over 3 million people through its doors. Home to Australia's leading performing arts companies, Arts Centre Melbourne presents exemplary international works alongside the best of Australian performing arts across genres including dance, theatre, music and opera, alongside an award-winning program of participation and learning.

Comprising over 45,000m2 (11+ acres) Arts Centre Melbourne venues feature Australia’s best theatres (State, Playhouse and Fairfax Studio), concert hall (Hamer Hall) and the iconic outdoor amphitheatre, the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. The visionary masterplan for the Reimagining of Arts Centre Melbourne was further cemented by the Victorian Government’s 2018 announcement of a once in a generation transformation for Melbourne Arts Precinct, with a refurbished Arts Centre Melbourne Theatres Building and Hamer Hall sitting at its gateway, alongside a new Arts Centre Melbourne fourth campus, all seamlessly linked by a new 18,000m2 public realm.

The Opportunity:

The Senior Project Manager will provide exceptional leadership and act as 2IC to the Director, Major Business Projects, as required.  This role will play an integral role in the design outcomes for Arts Centre Melbourne as it relates to a new Public Realm, a new performing arts facility at 1 City Road as well as the reimagining of Arts Centre Melbourne.


You will be responsible for:

  • Managing a team of project managers
  • High focus on stakeholder management, internally and externally.  Communication is a key part of this role.  
  • Working with internal and external groups on the design, with a focus on innovation and excellence.
  • Managing and delivering project outcomes including design and construction management
  • Participate in defining project outcomes and deliverables
  • Manage financial budget deliveries

Your Skills and Experience:

You would have demonstrated 5+ years’, as a minimum, experience in a project management role across any asset classes.   We are willing to consider someone with a sound Project Management background who has transitioned into a Development Manager role given the nature of where the projects are at.
Experience working in a live operating environment would be highly considered.  It would be ideal for someone who has worked client side and/or also from a consultancy background who understands how to get the best from their consultants to achieve the highest quality results.
Due to the unique projects, there will be a high number of internal and external stakeholders who will be involved, hence it is essential you would present strong communication skills and a sound understanding of working across various divisions.
In return, you will be involved in landmark projects that will be long standing in the Melbourne iconic landscape, which would be career defining and well regarded in the industry. An exciting opportunity to be part of something unique, at the forefront of innovation.
Flexible working hours, professional development opportunities, onsite discounts, and great entertainment benefits.
