Contracts Administrator

Enviropacific provides specialist engineering and applied science solutions for the prevention and remediation of solid and liquid contamination.  Since 2001, we've made it our business to prevent, stop and reverse environmental damage to create safer, healthier communities. Working across Australia, we employ over 250 staff across 8 offices, and are a trusted provider to the property, infrastructure, industrial, defence and petroleum sectors. 

We are seeking full-time Contracts Administrators to join our rapidly expanding Melbourne team. Our ideal candidate will be confident, trustworthy, and contractually savvy with the ability to leverage from their experience and education. Above all, we are looking for someone with a great attitude and work ethic, who is prepared to support the team, learn, develop, and progress their skills and career. This is a full-time role and upon completion of the project, the successful applicant will continue to support the business.

Reporting to the Project Manager, your responsibilities will include:

  • Managing subcontractor and supplier procurement processes and documentation, including subcontracts, Purchase Orders and Post-tender interviews.
  • Providing on-site contract administration assistance, as required.
  • Resolving problems concerning the head subcontract, subcontractors, and related programs.
  • Reviewing, administering and negotiating variations.
  • Identifying contract risks (delays, EOT claims and variations) and ensuring that these are documented or managed to the Company's expectations.
  • Reviewing and providing advice on extension of time claims.
  • Compiling and reviewing practical completion notifications.
  • Maintaining a contract admin register.
  • Preparation of subcontract/supply agreements, including review of technical specifications.
  • Providing recommendations to reduce liability for the project.

Key attributes for the role are:

  • Tertiary Qualification in either Law, Construction Management, or Quantity Surveying.
  • Construction experience on projects between $1M-$30M.
  • Strong understanding of Construction Law.
  • Intermediate to advanced skills in Microsoft Office and Project.
  • Demonstrated ability to write persuasive letters and notices.
  • Excellent organisation skills and a high level of attention to detail.
  • The ability to work in a fast past, multi-tasking environment, whilst keeping a level-head and maintaining the highest levels of professionalism at all times.
  • A pro-active and creative thinker, with the ability to review, suggest and implement improvements to processes.
  • The proven ability to work unsupervised in a highly autonomous role.
  • Excellent communication skills will be your key strength, in particular the ability to adapt your approach when dealing with a wide range of people in a variety of situations.

This is a growth position. Working closely with the Project Manager and getting support from the National Commercial Manager, you will have exposure to a wide variety of matters that will test your resolve, wit, and ability to think and act quickly yet strategically. In return for your skills and experience you will be offered an exciting and diverse role with an organisation who will offer you recognition for your hard work and a supportive work environment.
