We are looking for professionals who have a university degree in Engineering, or other relevant discipline combined with a minimum of 5 years of progressive hands-on experience managing major complex ICI, civil, or transit projects in an owner representative or a high-level construction supervisory roles. Strong business acumen, solid experience dealing with project budget, schedule, and technical requirements as well as financial and legal matters, contract management, and commercial considerations pertaining to project planning and implementation are required.
