Civil Engineer Design Principal

Newcastle - Residential

I have been engaged by a business I really like working with; they have this homegrown collegiate nature and the collaborative management are heavily invested in seeing team members excel.

Regarded as one of the best-networked and connected people consultancies in Australia, Highgrade Professional brings together trusted, collaborative and responsive recruitment and industry experts to deliver outstanding outcomes in Mining, Metro, Rail, Light Rail and Road transport infrastructure, technical niches, renewables infrastructure, civil, rail, mining and construction engineering, and construction operations.

Their goal is to create a nice place to work, with lots of flexibility, trust and a focus on exceeding client's expectations. They have bases in a number of key Australian locations & service civil engineering, structural engineering and another service across transport infrastructure, energy, mining & construction.

I've known a number of the warm, inclusive and empathetic executive for years and have seen several 10, 15 and even 25 year tenure celebrations in that time; so they're doing something right!

I'm looking for quite an experienced Civil Engineer working on design review, project management and overseeing a team. A civil engineer who knows their technical niche(s) quite well, and loves mentoring others, with just under 10 people in the team they will oversee. There's work across disciplines though there is a need for direct business development too. Currently, the client list includes councils, mines, TfNSW & rail / ARTC to name a few.

Growth has been a factor of late and they are closing on 100 employees working across Australian. The strategic growth plan over the next 5 years includes an aim for that figure to at least double, so a desire to grow a team would be a fantastic attribute too.

There's a very trusting oversight style in place, so this role wouldn't suit someone who enjoys a heavily structured environment. It's more for someone who focuses on delivery and guides a team that way too. I know some of the employees are doing some of their 40 hours per week in the evenings, so that can be more involved in their kid's lives. It's all about enjoying your work, delivery and client satisfaction here.

I am available for a trustworthy discussion on 0478 644 655 or simply send me your CV by clicking apply.
