About the role

The Senior Capital Program Manager is responsible for delivering the project from end to end, including scoping, design, construction, engineering and qualification through to supporting regulatory approvals and the operations start up phase. You will develop, establish and manage a large project structure of engineers, who with the support of external suppliers and consultants will execute the packages of work to the agreed design. Critically, you will maintain a high degree of focus on ongoing alignment with the steering committee, with cross-functional stakeholder groups, progress reporting, and the achievement of agreed schedule, commercial and business outcomes.

  • Highly organised, clear and concise communicator
  • Ability to distil complex objectives into clear and manageable plans
  • Ability to establish and lead an engineering project team to a shared outcome

Why should you apply?

If the above sounds like it is a description of you, then this is your chance to take ownership of what is clearly one of the most significant capital projects ever delivered in the Australian pharmaceutical industry.
