Job description

Our client is a specialist contractor who deliver complex infrastructure projects across various sectors such as Transport, Mining, Oil and Gas, Defence and Marine Sectors. They are a National business with high profile projects in QLD, NT, WA and NSW.

The role will be working in their Brisbane offices Mon-Fri but will have involvement across projects nationally so will offer a wide variety of different clients and scopes of work. There is in-frequent travel involved but it will be irregular and will mainly be for site visits or key client face to face meetings.
The role offers a construction professional an opportunity to step away from a site-based delivery position that often involves following work across the country and instead offers more stability locally and a chance to add strategic input into work winning and developing engineering solutions to approve cost and construction efficiencies.
Selection Criteria:
- 10 years post graduate experience

- Must have prior experience in working on bids, tenders and front-end engineering
- Forward thinking engineer capable of problem solving and bespoke solutions
