Civil Construction Project Manager

Updated: Apr 6

Apex Earthworks is on the hunt for our next construction project manager superstar!

Passionate and focused on high quality project delivery, we strongly support our team to continuously evolve, learn and love what they do.


We are currently seeking an experienced Civil Construction Project Manager as we expand on our well-established reputation throughout regional Victoria.

Our approach to Project Management requires a practical, attention to detail approach - we immerse ourselves in our projects, get our hands dirty and understand the intricacies of detailed construction activities. This is not a purely office based role - you will be out with your team, getting stuck in and really making projects come to life.

Apex Earthworks delivers a wide variety of civil and bulk earthworks projects throughout the Goulburn Valley including bulk earthworks, pipelines, water storage facilities, landfills, road and intersection construction and sub-divisions to some of the region’s largest clients.

We pride ourselves on high quality work and innovative construction solutions.

This role will be based out of Shepparton, VIC but may also require some travel around regional Victoria to support projects delivered through our Woodend office.
