Operations Manager


We’re seeking a motivated Operations Manager to join the Settlement City retail management team, and deliver the operational functions for the centre. This is a permanent full-time role, based on site at the shopping centre in Port Macquarie.

Settlement City is a community-focussed centre that welcomes over 3 million visitors per year, and is proud to provide major stores including Woolworths, Big W, The Reject Shop and Best & Less, as well as an additional 55 stores to the community.

Port Macquarie is a truly beautiful area situated on the mid north coast with plenty of ‘after work’ activities to keep you entertained. With direct flights to Sydney and Brisbane daily, Port Macquarie offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy a sea change without the hustle and bustle of city living.

Reporting to the Centre Manager, you’ll take responsibility for the management of day to day operational issues, contractor management and safety and compliance relating to all essential services, in line with operational budgets. This is an exciting opportunity to enhance your operations experience and progress your career within retail property management!

To be successful, you’ll be able to demonstrate operations management experience, ideally gained within retail/facilities management, or a similar environment. You’ll have attention to detail, with the ability to juggle multiple tasks and coordinate multiple activities. We’re looking for someone who has exceptional relationship and stakeholder management skills with the ability to question contractors and suppliers to ensure sound decision making. Experience in risk and compliance will also be highly regarded.

No matter where your office is, you will be a part of a company that cares about the same things you care about. We’ve always understood that employee welfare is integral to company performance, which is why we’ve had frameworks around employee and community wellbeing since 1983. At Lendlease, we invest in you professionally and personally because we want to ensure you perform to your full potential to leave behind positive legacies in years to come.


Lendlease is a diverse, flexible and inclusive employer of choice. We engage, enable and empower our people. Inclusion sets all of us up for success.
