Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI) facilitates interdisciplinary research partnerships that provide solutions to sustainable development challenges globally, providing a platform to share expertise in partnership with industry, government and the community. One of the current programs of work is the Urban Slum Revitalisation project funded by the UK-based Wellcome Trust. The project involves researchers from MSDI and five faculties across Monash as well as Stanford and Emory Universities and the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities. It is designed to undertake a water sensitive revitalisation of 24 urban slums across Indonesia and Fiji, building local capabilities in new water technologies and improving human and environmental health within these communities.
The Project Manager is a key position within this program, leading and managing the end-to-end scope of this multifaceted project, including researching and planning, stakeholder engagement, developing documentation and presentations, milestone reporting as well as post-implementation reviews. In addition, you will lead a highly trained and motivated team, including staff based in-country, to underpin and deliver on the goals of the project, ensuring key project deliverables are met, project requirements resourced effectively, and budget considerations are managed. Risk identification and mitigation, legislative and process compliance, and change management responsibilities will add further diversity to this focus.
This is an ideal opportunity to drive real, substantial change and make a significant positive impact to these local communities. If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply
