The Company
Over the last 18 months, a long term connection of mine has re-invigorated the NSW operations of an international consultancy. He is a very well regarded civil leader who has been successful in a number of geographies throughout this state. 
His mandate for growth has led to internal promotion and the need to bolster the team with solid principal civil engineers here in Sydney.

The Role

Our client is looking for a Principal Civil Engineer or Senior Civil Engineer looking to step up. You will work on the civil works on rail or city road projects in Sydney and the suburbs. The role will be a mixture of design work and team management.

There is a solid pipeline of work and client delivery and team leadership are higher up the role's priority list, significantly more than business development. The work is being generated from other divisions and the strong relationships the executive nurture.

This position is a newly created role due to a mixture of growth and internal promotion and is an exciting opportunity for someone looking to take the next step in their career. 

The Candidate

You must be degree qualified in Civil Engineering with experience working in the Australian civil infrastructure space, ideally rail. The rail experience we'd most love to focus on would be rail track and earthworks, though we're open to other civil transport infrastructure streams too. 


The package is circa $200,000.

Please note our client is looking for someone who has experience working in Australia currently and has a visa to work here.
