This role will be heavily involved with a variety of projects across the University and will be working closely with project teams, contractors and suppliers in the provision of FF&E. Also, from time to time and as required, involvement with other projects and project management duties outside the FF&E scope.

  • Management of planning and capital projects workflow and coordination of work orders
  • Managing record of department activities and inventory.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Mid level experience within project or property coordination with strong spatial awareness
  • A tertiary background in Architecture or Design will be a plus
  • Intermediate-level experience with MS Office Suite and familiarity with CAD will be an advantage, but aptitude to pick up new systems will be sufficient
