Full Time

Macquarie University seeks a strategic end-to-end program designer and leader with deep understanding of managing infrastructure projects with community-wide impact. Aligned with one of Australia’s strongest education brands, this is an intellectually challenging, hands-on and pivotal role, in which you will:

  • Develop and implement the project plan incorporating the closure and re-opening of Macquarie University’s train station from late 2018.
  • Identify, analyse and co-ordinate solutions to mitigate risks and issues associated with the Station’s closure and re-opening.
  • Build and manage new and existing internal and external stakeholder relationships.

With the Station’s closure impacting more than 14,000 commuters daily, you will bring considerable experience managing and delivering large scale complex projects, and demonstrate knowledge of public sector policy, integrated transport and infrastructure development. With commercial acumen and a measurable track record of analysing data and delivering project plans against commercial objectives, you will design and implement metrics that support and inform decision making and governance throughout the life of this project.

You will bring with you a wealth of successful project leadership experience with outstanding skills for building and managing relationships and communicating at all levels in the organisation. You will also be prepared to work alongside multiple stakeholders to support them through this transition.

In designing and overseeing the program outcomes for each stage, you will collaborate with the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor and the Chief Operating Officer. This is a unique and high-impact role and is an outstanding opportunity.

The University has engaged Derwent Executive to assist in the recruitment process. For further information and to apply, visit and search Ref 22963
