You will be entrusted to bring all parties together and keep the project on track and work with all involved to keep it on budget and delivered on time. This exciting project requires an exceptional candidate with experience in similar projects, within similar environments, some experience of civil engineering, poultry equipment and layer house infrastructure is essential.
