Procurement Manager – Projects

Spirit of Tasmania

  • Newly created position
  • Two new vessels

Spirit of Tasmania is a private company established in 1993 by the Tasmanian government to operate passenger and freight services across Bass Strait.  Operating two ferries between Melbourne and Devonport, the company has two shore based sites with a head office in Devonport Tasmania and Port Melbourne Victoria.


Spirit of Tasmania is about to commence construction of two new vessels to replace the current fleet.  These vessels will be larger and have greater capacity for both passengers and freight than the current vessels.

As part of these builds, a commitment has been made to collaboratively pursue the use of Tasmanian materials and content in the construction of the vessels to deliver up to $100 million  in local supply to Tasmanian businesses.

The Role

To facilitate the procurement of Tasmanian materials and content, Spirit of Tasmania is seeking to appoint a Tasmanian based Procurement Manager – Projects, with strong expertise in procurement with local industry.

The role will be Tasmanian based however, whilst there is an expectation that you will spend some time at the Head Office in Devonport, there is flexibility around the permanent working location.  Interstate travel will also be required.

Vessels will be constructed at RMC Shipyard in Finland and the Procurement Manager Projects will work very closely with the shipyard representative in relation to both the procurement of local materials and content, timing, quality and logistics of the delivery of materials and content.


Spirit of Tasmania is open to the specific experience and background someone may bring, provided you possess the necessary senior procurement skills and bring a strong knowledge of Tasmanian industry.

In addition to procurement expertise, you will bring experience with supply chain/logistics and strong commercial acumen.

A background or experience in heavy industry, maritime, engineering or large hospitality is desirable but not essential.
