We are looking for an experienced, energetic and self-motivated project manager, who has extensive project management and community engagement experience. You will have previously managed projects of a similar value which include complex stakeholder and community engagement and stakeholder coordination across a variety of different groups including but not limited to businesses, residents and community groups.
