Construction Project Manager Jobs

How to Enter

There are no strict education requirements to be a Construction Project Manager because most people enter Project Management from other areas of the Residential or Commercial Construction industry. However, for Project Management jobs, many New Zealand employers prefer candidates with tertiary qualifications in a specific area of expertise, such as Construction or Project Management (PMI or PRINCE2).

Typical Responsibilities

The day-to-day responsibilities of a Construction Project Manager can include any of the following:

  • Communicating with project team, clients and internal/external stakeholders

  • Planning project deliverables

  • Managing project delivery timeline

  • Managing and reporting project budgets and resources

  • Producing and updating all project documentation to company/client standards

  • Managing project and administration team

  • Managing external vendors and that their services meet agreed specifications


As Construction Project Managers gain more experience, they can often expect to move to larger, more complex projects or projects with a higher risk or level of stakeholder. In many cases, Construction Project Managers can often progress to more senior Project Management, Programme Management or into operational management positions. Alternatively, some may also work as self-employed contractors.
