Wiser Projects - PROJECT MANAGER and DEVELOPMENT PLANNER

WHO WE ARE
Wiser Projects is a growing community planning and development firm based in Victoria, B.C, with resources across Vancouver Island. We strive to bring our value- based practice of planning and development to each of our projects and clients. Our goal is to support the capacity of our partners so they can manage projects more efficiently, effectively, and independently the next time around. We aim to be transparent, inclusive, and flexible in our work. This can be translated as us supporting our client partners in whatever it takes to realize the vision of the project, while meeting client and community goals along the way. Most of our clients and projects are non-profit, Indigenous governments, and community-oriented private sector clients who are completing planning and development projects. Many of our projects are housing related, whether it be building seniors, ‘missing middle,’ family-oriented, or fully accessible projects. We frequently work on unique public projects that excite our team and invigorate neighbourhoods and cities; these include Art Galleries, Cathedrals, and policy work such as age-friendly assessments.

WHO YOU ARE
You understand what it means to be ‘competent, creative and committed.’ Someone seeking a collaborative, positive, innovative work environment in Victoria, B.C.; someone seeking to work with partners and projects that truly build community through planning, policies, socio-economic opportunities, and housing; someone that understands the sensitivities and opportunities of non-profit, public, and private sector needs; and someone who is seeking challenge, growth, and opportunity.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES
Project Managers play a leading role in all areas of the planning and development process including client facing communications, acquisitions, feasibility studies, financial analysis and forecasts, conceptual site planning and design, municipal permitting and approvals, and project management from acquisition through occupancy for projects. Project Managers facilitate strong relationships with municipal staff and elected officials, both Indigenous and non, as well as representatives of Community Associations, and members of the general public.
