Fantastic opportunity for an experienced Cost Planner to join the Melbourne team, working across a number of industry sectors on major building projects – offering genuine career opportunities.
With a national delivery capability, combined with a sector-focussed approach, Lendlease Building provides innovative and industry-leading project management, design and construction services driven by detailed sector knowledge and experience. We push boundaries to create iconic places that are innovative, sustainable and commercially viable. Our Building business is renowned for market-leading project management, design and construction services.
We love a challenge and solving problems. Our clients come to us when it's important: to handle complexity, drive diversity, offer strategic and long term value, and to create innovative solutions.
As the Cost Planner part of your responsibility will be to ensure Lendlease has direct and detailed knowledge of the supply and place costs of all our delivery capex. Other responsibilities will include contributing to the development strategy and driving the production of conceptual & detailed cost plans, estimates and value engineering on a range of varied major projects throughout Australia. Other core duties will include controlling project costs during the concept design, design development phase and actively participate as a fundamental member of the Product, Operations and Delivery team.
Working closely with senior management to develop and create an efficient cost planning function that will drive the time to market and provide the project with a deliverable platform. As an important contributor during the feasibility phase of development you will work in a collaborative approach with the project management team, the regional cost planning team and clients from design concept, through construction cost reporting to a final cost analysis.
It goes without saying that you will have extensive experience firstly as a ‘hands on' cost planner / QS and more recently in your career as a leader within a leading business. You will have lead the cost from development for a range of major building projects either within: residential, health, defence, government, commercial or mixed development sectors having seen projects grow from concept to completion. The role will require an individual who has built relationships with clients, partners and external consultants and can demonstrate natural leadership ability.
When it's important we deliver. Some projects simply demand it. A focus, a new idea, a finish date, a cost imperative, a level of safety, a way of working, a strategic partner. Or a complete re-think.
Lendlease is a diverse, flexible and inclusive employer of choice. We engage, enable and empower our people. Inclusion sets all of us up for success.
