Your Impact:

As our global supply and ask for water grows, solving the world’s most complex water challenges requires different thinking – and that’s where we come in. We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated Senior Construction Manager to join our growing Water team in Michigan.

Jacobs is ranked top 3 in the world by ENR for water infrastructure engineering design, construction, and program management. We provide a full-service offering to our clients from planning and design through construction. Join us and enjoy our deep resources to support your success and career working on our large water/wastewater infrastructure projects.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to play a vital role on our team as Senior Construction Manager on a wide range of large, multi-year water, wastewater, conveyance, and storage projects for major municipal clients in Michigan.

As Senior Construction Manager, you will provide full‐time RPR management services to monitor and document the progress and quality of the construction, ensuring that projects are accomplished in conformance with the contract documents. You will often be called on to be an ambassador with multiple project stakeholders, with the ability to utilize “soft” skills and an in‐depth understanding of potential construction impacts on the public to: 1) develop contract language to ensure such impacts and changes to the contract are minimized, and 2) carry out positive interactions with the general public during pre‐construction and construction activities.

If you are not currently residing in southeast Michigan, then relocation assistance will be provided to support your move to the region.
