What we’re looking for?

Kmart is currently on an aggressive journey to convert a number of Target stores into Kmart Hubs and large format Stores in a short space of time and are looking to add an IT Infrastructure Senior Project Manager with experience on large Retail IT Infrastructure projects, to the team to ensure these stores are converted in a seamless manner.  You will be working with a highly experienced team, who for the past 6 years have been busy converting stores or opening new stores and ensuring all the IT infrastructure is in place ready for the grand openings.  You will be responsible for planning the infrastructure model for both Hubs and Large Format stores, ordering and coordinating the equipment. Budget, timelines, stakeholder engagement and providing frequent status updates as this is a critical role and project for both Kmart and Target.  This role is a 12 month fixed term contract and will suit an experienced Senior Project Manager who has worked on similar projects in the past. 

About You

To meet the challenges of this role, you will ideally possess the following skills and experience;

  • This isn’t your average project.  Most of the conversions of stores will happen outside normal business hours and as the Project manager, you will be required to answer queries and solve those curly problems in the dead of night – and therefore will be on an ON CALL roster;

  • Demonstrable experience leading and managing teams and influencing stakeholders to get the job done;

  • Given the timeline of this project, your calm demeanour and ability to problem solve on the fly (as each conversion is unique), will hold you in good stead for this role.

  • Prior experience on a similar project;

  • Successfully managed similar projects - meeting deadlines, budgets and ensuring stakeholders are continually engaged and up to date;

  • Previous experience managing external vendors.

 You will be afforded autonomy and accountability in your role and have access to development opportunities across both Kmart and the Wesfarmers Group, excellent remuneration, inclusion in company bonus scheme & access to Wesfarmers share plan (both for eligible team members), free parking and benefits program including a discount card for Kmart, Coles, Target and Officeworks.

At Kmart we aim to ensure our teams reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate.

Candidates interested in this position should apply directly to this advertisement as we are not accepting applications from recruitment agencies.
