Australian Naval Infrastructure

In 2017, the Federal Government established Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI), to design, construct and operate the shipyard infrastructure needed to support the Commonwealth’s Naval Shipbuilding Plan.  ANI has commenced a major expansion and upgrade of the Osborne Naval Shipbuilding facilities to enable the build of major surface combatant warships, and is working collaboratively with Naval Group and Defence to progress planning for the future submarine yard.  This is the largest ever infrastructure investment of its type in Australia’s history.

Reporting to the Chief Commercial and Financial Officer, the primary purpose of this role is to lead both Procurement and Contract Management functions. Specifically, the Contracts Manager will be responsible for the development of procurement strategies, implementation of procurement processes, and governance of ANI’s procurement functions in support of ANI’s operations and project teams.  This position will also be responsible for the management and administration of ANI’s contractual arrangements with shipyard and commercial tenants, suppliers and other relevant counterparties.

This position will form part of a relatively small, but agile corporate team of highly experienced and respected professionals.  This is a hands on role, working at all levels.  Applications are invited from experienced contract management professionals with appropriate tertiary qualifications and extensive experience in commercial contract management in a complex industry environment.  The successful candidate will have strong commercial acumen, considerable experience in the preparation of tendering and procurement documentation, and the ability to build and maintain positive working relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders. High levels of drive, initiative, flexibility and enthusiasm to assist with the achievement of business outcomes, are all essential.
