Project Director Jobs
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.
