No two days will be the same with this role.

We are looking for a Project Coordinator who can work across the Council, assisting our Project Managers with projects such as drinking water or recycling services one day, and technology projects the next. The team’s focus is on building project management capability throughout the organisation, helping to shape, guide and deliver projects of all kinds. Join a team with a passion for helping the Council to do what it does in a more structured and focused way, while maintaining a strong emphasis on pragmatic delivery and innovative solutions.

The Project Coordinator role is a great fit for natural planners, organisers and problem solvers who enjoy helping in a range of areas, and for those with a project background who are keen to grow their skills in project management or business analysis.
