We’re responding to the challenges presented by a changing climate and leading the transition to a low carbon, renewable energy future. 

We’re privileged to work with, live alongside and respect the culture of First Nations peoples who first understood the energy of this land.

  • Identifying and effectively manage project risks and issues throughout the project or program lifecycle.
  • Managing the delivery of multiple projects within agreed quality, time, and cost objectives.
  • Safety leadership and management throughout all project stages in alignment with HP’s SHMS.
  • Project design, structuring, financing, and concept support from various stakeholders.
  • Land options analysis and assembly, including identification of relevant sites, engagement with relevant parties, environmental, heritage and negotiation of legal arrangements for land use.

You will have: 

  • Mandatory formal Project Management Certification or equivalent experience. 
  • WA Drivers Licence Class “C” or “C-A”.
  • Awareness and respect of the diversity of First Nations cultures across WA.
  • Significant experience in the successful delivery of programs/projects. 
  • Experience developing and delivering submissions to the Executive Management Team and Board.
  • Demonstrated experience delivering to approved scope, budget, and schedule.

  • Helping to create a connected and thriving WA.
  • An extensive rewards and recognition program.

  • Flexible working arrangements.

Our workplace culture is created through every interaction, every experience and everything we do. 

Across our organisation, we recognise and reward people and offer work that works with you.
