The Victorian School Building Authority is seeking a Senior Project Manager to join their Property and Land team on a 2.5 year fixed term contract. 

VSBA's Land Acquisition Program is a fast-paced, responsive environment made up of three teams, Forward Planning, Site & Infrastructure and Delivery where team members collaborate to deal responsively with a range of high-volume, high-impact projects.

 

Reporting to the Manager, the Senior Project Manager is responsible for delivering land acquisition projects for educational facilities throughout Victoria in close collaboration with the Land Acquisition teams, whilst managing site-related issues in accordance with the specified timeframes for delivering the Government's scheduled dates for opening new schools.


The role of Senior Project Manager includes site-suitability investigations, developing strategies to mitigate risks to the program, understanding of relevant planning schemes, stakeholder management with various landholders (including developers, private individuals, other government agencies and local government authorities), ensuring compliance with relevant policies and guidelines, land acquisition, and negotiating contracts of sale or other relevant legal agreements. The job-holder will also be required to contribute to new strategic land acquisition initiatives led by the Department of Education.


An important element of the role is the provision of timely advice and specialist support to other areas within the VSBA and the Department in relation to the VSBA's Land Acquisition Program. Given the high profile nature of the projects, the role requires exceptional stakeholder management skills to ensure that the projects are delivered on time and on budget, and communication and reporting are delivered to the highest standard.


Key stakeholders include the Office of the Minister for Education, the Chief Executive Officer and the Executive team of the VSBA, local government authorities, other government Departments and Government agencies such as the Valuer-General Victoria and the Victorian Government Land Monitor.
The role would suit someone with well-developed interpersonal skills, knowledge of land development and strong experience in working collaboratively as part of a team.

All VSBA staff have a shared responsibility to meet the same service standards outlined in the VSBA Customer Service Charter. Our goal is to make every interaction with the VSBA a positive one for our customers, colleagues and key partners regardless of our individual role or team.

  •Wellbeing - Increase the contribution education, development and child health services make to good health and quality of life for all Victorians, particularly children and young people
