Commercial Manager

Permanent / Full TimeLocation: Perth Posted on July 25, 2022

PLEASE NOTE: this is not a senior, team management-focused Commercial Manager role. It will suit if you are on the upswing of a career within the contracts/commercial space. If you are seeking a people Manager role, please consider another position. 

  • While having some overlap with a contracts administration role, this brings a broader commercial remit – spanning project support, response to claims and risk management
  • A key part will be the commercial support for the Project Management team, ensuring that financial aspects are in line with expectations
  • You will handle initial responses to claims and provide practical contractual and quasi-legal support across a range of higher risk profile projects
  • Given their client base are many of the premium engineering and mining companies who have large, sophisticated contracts and commercial offerings, they are expanding their internal capabilities
  • As such, it will be necessary for you to be able to build and maintain working relationships with stakeholders across levels, while also being able to hold your own in negotiation processes
  • There will be a strong level of support though, with the General Manager holding this role in the past so knows it back to front
  • Best suiting a qualified lawyer, accountant or engineer, this highly commercial role will see you take a key role on some globally significant engineering projects
  • This will suit best if you have an interest in leveraging your existing foundation to do something different, and an enthusiasm to learn while getting stuck in across a range of projects simultaneously
  • The company is a multinational, engineering consultancy who are genuinely at the forefront of what they do
  • You will have involvement with large resources projects for blue-chips while also having involvement in some of the biggest stadium, infrastructure, commercial and industrial builds through Australia, Asia and the US
  • Highly advanced technologically, their newly fitted out office in the CBD reflects and supports this
  • The internal culture is one of continual personal development, with encouragement for staff at all levels to ask questions and continually seek knowledge
  • PLEASE NOTE: this is not a senior, team management focused Commercial Manager role.
  • It will suit if you are on the upswing of a career (2-5 yrs’ experience) within the contracts management space or a Legal or Accounting Practitioner (including Graduates) who is looking to pivot
  • You will demonstrate high numerical and literacy competencies and a high level of attention to detail
