About the opportunity

We are seeking an experienced Project Manager to join this exciting project that is already underway!  Reporting to the Service Manager - Dunedin Emergency and Medicine Service, you will need to hit the ground running and demonstrate success in the delivery of project and service delivery management and implementation.
