Sitting down with the Sydney leadership, it's impressive to hear the number of projects this consultancy has bid on and been awarded through its different divisions. They have delivered major projects worldwide and have an impressive list of local and international awards. 
This current role is testament to the impressive pipeline of major projects and has come about due to the high volume of NSW bridge work being won. Currently, bridge design is serviced through offices in other states, and now the time has come for a local leader to head up this high performance division.
Due to this being such a warm opportunity it comes with a few major bonuses
  1. You have a solid stream of current work and the pressure isn't immediately on to win
  2. The transition in to the business has no time pressure, with the current team remaining most available and in the business
  3. As you build up the local team's numbers, you have an opportunity to guide the makeup and set the cultural tone.
On top of a generous remuneration package, on par with the best I’ve seen in Sydney, you’ll work on major and impressive projects. There is a full suite of employee benefits and amazing flexibility outside of the salary package to also entice the highest quality of people.
The role
You will need to retain some hands on skills, especially through the growth phase, so that whilst this is a true leadership role, your skills are still relevant enough to make a difference to those around you

  • Perform engineering analysis
  • Create technical documentation and reporting
  • Provide guidance and mentoring to others
  • Advise external clients and collaborate with these key clients, promoting organisational capability seeking new opportunities

Engineers will ideally have
  • Extensive practical experience and strong technical skills in the design of bridges in NSW
  • Experience of delivering Australian bridge projects, preferably within NSW to TfNSW (RMS) standards
  • Strong analytical and design skills
  • Established concrete structures experience for Rail and Highway Bridges
  • The ability to produce designs, reports, proposals and specifications to delight clients
