About the job
What this job involves:
Directing projects every step of the way
You’ll develop big ideas that will spark the effective management and successful execution of all phases of a project—from initiating to final handover to the client. You’ll need to carefully identify and take note of our clients’ needs, and figure out what exactly needs to be done in a way that meets JLL’s commercial objectives. This involves defining the scope of the work and expected outcome, at the same time detailing all the necessary objectives to get there. While you do all of these, you’ll need to keep tabs on company resources and allocate them effectively to finish projects within budget. From onset to completion of the project, you’ll represent our clients, helping them organise and analyse tender and procurement for all contractors and suppliers.
Building strong teams and business reputation
One of your main concerns will be to produce high-performing teams that drive successful project execution. You’ll need to collaborate effectively with a range of stakeholders, leading from the front while also taking the time to understand their point of view. You’ll also represent and promote the company throughout projects, and seize additional opportunities along the road.
Core to our reputation is our strong focus on health & safety and on sustainability, and you’ll be expected to keep these front-of-mind at all times.

Our successful Project Managers …
Client-centric problem solver
We employ talent from a wide range of backgrounds, though typically you should have a degree in a relevant field, and/or around five years’ experience in design, construction, project management in interior fit-out projects for multinational clients. It would be excellent if you have a strong background in all aspects of interior fit-out management—including management on schedule, quality, cost and risk management, and negotiation, to name a few. Your expertise in surveying a client’s basic needs, completing commercial assessments, and preparing PM proposals will also be put to the test. Your quickness in understanding and dealing with a situation will be indispensable especially in carrying out value engineering, build ability analysis, critical reviews of design and documentation.
Business savvy and action-oriented
To excel in this role, you should have a high level of understanding and technical expertise in business. We deliver projects that help our clients succeed as well as help JLL achieve our business and financial goals.
Are you well versed in project products, systems, processes, tools and best practices? Can you handle the site operations no matter how complex it may be?
Likewise, you should have a great sense of urgency when it comes to solving problems, improving products or services, finding new markets, and implementing new strategies. You are resilient and can deal effectively with competing priorities and tight deadlines. You should know how to negotiate to generate risk-assessed solutions, and how to handle ambiguities.
A great communicator with superb organisational skills
Do you have what it takes to lead and motivate your project team members? Are you capable of leading by example and fostering a creative environment? We achieve our biggest success when working together, so clear communication is key, as is collaboration and team work.
A structured and organised approach with an eye for detail is also crucial, as is being tech-savvy. As the digital leader in project management, we use a range of technology platforms to deliver our projects.
