Job Description

It’s been a busy 2021 so far and we are getting ready for an even busier start to the new financial year. We are looking for talented Project Managers to join our team and drive the delivery of services to our clients in Adelaide.


About the role

In consulting, no two days are the same.  We are looking for people who are equally at ease leading people and managing projects, ensuring that they are delivered on time, scope, budget and at the highest quality, as well as developing business cases and project charters. This unique opportunity is as challenging as it is rewarding and a big tick for those who thrive on change, growth, and development.

 To be successful in this role you will have proven Project Management experience within a corporate environment, using various project management methodologies and a focus on delivering high quality results for clients.

 You will have exceptional communication skills and the ability to engage and build lasting relationships with a wide range of stakeholders at all levels of an organisation. You will have demonstrated leadership experience and the ability to form and lead cohesive, successful teams.

This is an amazing opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, broaden your knowledge and capabilities and to do work that has real impact.

We do this by translating opportunities and ideas into a fit-for-purpose strategy and working in partnership through implementation.  Together, we generate more impactful and sustainable results.

 Achieving these results, we believe, is centred around an exceptional working experience for our clients—an experience created by our people.  This brilliant experience and our people are The Escient difference.

We were also named an employer of choice by The Australian Business Awards in 2020.

  • Flexible working opportunities – enjoy a life/work balance while you enjoy meaningful work and achieve impactful results for our clients
  • Annual Technology and Membership allowances – allowances that you receive year on year and not just a one off

  • Purchased Annual leave – have the option to purchase up to two weeks annual leave every year
  • A great professional development budget - that you are encouraged to use!


Our Team

Every one of our team has the top-class qualifications and skills you'd expect, but we go much deeper in our search for the best talent. We have an extensive recruitment process that ensures that we are hard-wired to be:

  • Courageous in our thinking and bold in our actions.
  • Creative and curious about how we approach solving complex challenges. We ask what if? We say, why not!
  • Selfless, focused on the WE, not ME, recognising the power of a genuinely collaborative approach.

 We have found that by encouraging, nurturing and rewarding these values, we deliver time and time again, helping our clients achieve more than they ever expected. And for us to grow at an unprecedented rate.
