How to Enter
Due to the crucial nature of a Project Director’s role, many New Zealand employers will be looking for candidates with extensive experience in Civil, Commercial or Residential Construction, and in some cases, a relevant degree in Construction or Business Management.
The typical responsibilities of a Project Director can include any of the following:
Meeting with clients and customers to determine requirements and report project progress
Engaging with government officials, building professionals and architects to plan work
Concluding volume of workers, materials, and machinery needed for construction projects
Managing risks to avoid delays
Consulting with Quantity Surveyors to make sure projects are kept within budget
Tracking and reporting construction costs
Liaising with contractors and suppliers
Hiring workers and apprentices
Ensuring Health and Safety standards are adhered to
Implement traffic management and environmental protection plans
Project Directors who gain significant experience can often progress to more executive-level positions, such as Construction Manager, or even start their own construction companies and become self-employed contractors and consultants.
