Our Opportunity

OneSky is a game-changer for Australia’s airspace. The project will unify Australian skies under a new, harmonised air traffic management system. This will enable a new level of safety and efficiency, while also reducing delays for the travelling public and providing opportunities to improve environmental outcomes. It will be the catalyst for better connectivity to underpin Australia’s sustainable growth into the future. OneSky will transform Australia’ sky and we are proud to be partners in its delivery. As such, we are looking to engage a newly created position in our Melbourne office for a Project Manager which is focused on support responsibilities.

Reporting to our Chief of Staff for the OneSky program this role won’t specifically run their own project end to end but will help to support a variety of activities and work on our program management improvement plan. This role will focus on tracking program performance and ensure performance measures are identified, actioned and completed. One of the key activities will be to perform analysis of data, build and develop KPIs for the program and also support our customer deliverables at a high level.
