Project Manager


Location: Sydney

Job Type: Full time


At Transurban, our Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) teams use the brightest ideas and most inspired engineering to translate into safer, more efficient roads to enhance the road-user experience.

They also create roads for the future with automated toll collections, advanced control systems that monitor and manage traffic on the road and use machine learning to detect traffic incidents and even predict when an accident is more likely to happen. They're making roads ready for driverless cars and using smart traffic flow and signalling to get us to where we're going faster. A career here makes a difference you can feel.

The Project Manager oversees all aspects of the project from planning, to execution through to implementation and transition. Expected projects will range from medium to large infrastructure or ITS projects and span time periods from six months to multiple years. Some projects will involve managing multiple streams of work concurrently, often with varying degrees of complexity and the engagement of multiple subject matter experts.

  • A natural people person with strong relationship management, communication and influencing skills, you're able to coordinate multiple people to achieve goals.
  • Analytical and incisive, you'll spot issues and use your own ingenuity - and that of your team - to solve problems collaboratively.
