Our client is a commercial fit out specialist servicing quality clients across Victoria. Their projects are usually valued between $250k and $500k but they are increasingly winning larger contracts (over $1million). Projects are primarily based in Melbourne but there are occasional jobs in regional Victoria.

Due to this growth and an increase in project pipeline, they are seeking to add to the team with a talented and professional Construction Supervisor/Project Manager to deliver these ongoing projects.
