Business Development Manager - construction - Melbourne

Full Time - Posted on February 17, 2020

3D Commercial are seeking a Business Development Manager with a background in Construction, to be able to assist an Estimating team and secure further work.

The Company

Given the nature of this role, confidentiality has been requested. What I can advise, is that this business is a National Construction Business with a very heavy focus on client delivery and repeat business. 

The Role

As a Business Development Manager, you would be responsible for catching a project BEFORE it goes live on the market. Having an existing network within Melbourne's construction industry will be highly advantageous to your success in this role. You will be liaising with existing and new clients to the business, as well as advising the Estimating Team as to upcoming projects in the market. There will be an element of marketing left to yourself, but you will be supported by a Project Administrator, Estimating Manager and an Operations Manager, who already have some relationships of their own. Networking will be a huge benefit to your success and attending relevant industry events will help cast your brand across the industry.

Impeccable organisational skills are a MUST for this role. You will have full autonomy over your day to day duties, only reporting in to weekly Executive Management meetings.


Ideally, you will have come from a Construction background in either a Contract Administrator / Project Manager role at some point in your career. Having your own network is highly advantageous in this position. Your projects must be within the commercial world, be it Child Care Centres, Healthcare projects, Office Fitouts, School Projects or even Retail Developments - These will all help your credibility and success in the role.

You must be driven, ambitious and ready for a new challenge. This won't be a regular 7am-5pm role.

  • Bonus scheme - Based on KPis and project delivery
  • Free tickets to industry events
  • Flexible working days to make up for time lost attending out of hours events
