We have an immediate job opening for a Senior Project Manager to certify and oversee the operations and maintenance of private and municipal wastewater treatment systems that Astbury operates under contract in Central Indiana. Responsibilities include directing personnel and subcontractors performing operational functions while also serving as the Operator of Record and client representative.
