Systems Project Manager - Defe...


Broadspectrum is an operations, maintenance and construction services organisation, operating globally in the resources, energy, industrial, infrastructure, rail, property and defence sectors. This is a diverse and growing business offering the training, opportunities and support you need to begin and build a successful career.

About the Role

Due to continued growth on our Defence Base Services (DBS) contract, Broadspectrum are seeking to appoint a Systems Project Manager to project manage and coordinate contract activity relating to system enhancements, change management, process documentation, and the ADF’s new Garrison Estate Management System (GEMS).

GEMS is a SAP based management system and will require Broadspectrum’s DBS contract to transition to operating in an integrated environment with the Defence system, with significant impact on current operations and procedural arrangements.

Reporting to the Systems Transition Manager, the Systems Project Manager will be responsible for overseeing many aspects of Broadspectum’s evolution into a GEMS environment and will offer the successful candidate ongoing, permanent tenure.  This is not a purely information technology role, but rather a change management and coordination role.


  • Acting as a DBS point of contact for Defence GEMS and the DBS Business on aspects of system implementation

  • Planning, developing, coordinating and implementing Project Plans

  • Organising and overseeing all aspects of transitions, including the integration of Information Technology effort, development and implementation of new practices and procedures, stepped transition, changes to operational organisations, training development and procedural development and documentation

  • Supporting major organisation changes, particularly with the Base Services Support Centre (BSSC) and the OBJECTIVE team

  • Providing advice to senior stakeholders on project portfolio issues

  • Controlling transition program budgets, including management of claims for Contract non-core expenditure

  • Preparing proposals relating to system integration especially around the GEMS implementation

  • Supporting the DBS Commercial Support Team in preparation of GEMS related contract change documentation, including estimating and documentation development

  • Preparing internal reports for the senior management team

  • Fostering strong collegiate relationships with estimating and commercial peers in other portfolios.

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Experience of services delivery in a Defence environment 

  • Experience in change management projects, particularly those with a systems / IT focus

  • Exposure to operating in a SAP environment and/or an understanding of back end Facility Maintenance solutions is essential

  • An ability to interact effectively with key internal and external stakeholders, including Defence clients

  • Advanced Excel and data management skills

  • Analytical, planning and scheduling capability

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.

  • Formal qualifications in project management methodologies are highly desirable

The systems transition is likely to progress over a period of up to 18 months, following which there will be a requirement to oversee ongoing GEMS change management and operations.
