Project Manager – Melbourne

About the opportunity

Hickory is Australia’s most innovative construction company, at the forefront of new technology and driving Australia’s multi-unit, high-rise residential evolution.  Established in 1991, we’ve grown from a small family business into a nationwide group, with over 600 employees including construction, structures, facades, manufacturing, fit out and crane logistics specialists.

Hickory will be delivering a large pipeline of work in 2018 and is seeking an experienced Project Manager to lead construction project delivery.

About You

Hickory employees have direct access to company directors, who are personally involved in the professional development of each member of the team
