We are on the hunt to fill a few roles in our Design team and we are keen to speak with candidates who are at Design Coordinator/Design Manager level. This is to join our project team at the New Zealand International Convention Centre (NZICC), based at our Nelson Street site office. This is an iconic project being delivered by the Fletcher Construction in a design build model. 

You will be responsible for coordinating the design process and deliverables with best practice architectural, engineering and construction methods. You will also assist in the integration of planning, safety, quality, commercial, construction and design issues to manage project design risks. You will interact with the Fletcher Construction, wider Design Team and select subcontractors as required. 

To be successful in this role, you don’t need to be a Designer, an engineer, or a construction expert. But you must have a great can-do attitude and have proven interpersonal skills to build and maintain constructive relationships between different parties.  The ideal candidates for the roles include those with project management, architecture or engineering backgrounds, or those with a site management background who are keen to be a key contributor to the design process.  

Along with the above points, we are looking for the following attributes and capabilities:
Tertiary qualification in engineering, architecture or site management is desirable but not necessary
Relevant design coordination or design management experience in a large construction/multi project environment is desirable
Proven high level of interpersonal skills, with the ability to guide the project team to a coordinated and successful outcome
Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including intermediate to advanced computer skills
Great negotiation skills 
High level of attention to detail
Excellent organisation and time management skills
Solution focused – Proactive in seeking results and comfortable working in an environment where ready-made answers aren’t always available
High level of drive – Displaying a personal commitment and desire to succeed in a pressured environment
A self-starter with a can-do attitude is a must.
