This is an exciting new opportunity for a Principal Civil Engineer to join a national, employee-owned civil consultancy based in their Brisbane office.

Reporting directly to the Regional Manager, you will be working hand in hand to help build the civil arm of the business throughout Queensland.

With offices across Australia, this firm has been successful across transport, land development, civil structures and buildings.

The aim of this role is to organically build the civil discipline in either the transport or land development sectors. With each project won, local staff will be hired and excess project work can be handled by other offices. The aim is to be self sufficient in the mid to long term.

The Regional Manager has a strong background as a structural engineer in the buildings industry and has relationships with national clients. A civil engineer who has worked with council or TMR on roads / transport projects or someone with experience working with major developers would be a nice fit next to him.

Your role will include:

  • Client relationship management and business development
  • Leading and building a team of civil engineers, designers and drafters
  • Project management
  • Strategic management of the civil business
  • Mentoring staff and assisting with training and development
  • Working together with other key leaders in the business across Australia

You will need:

  • At least 12 – 20 years of experience as a Civil Engineer 
  • Consulting experience in some capacity is essential – (design experience in transport or land development will be favoured)
  • A relevant engineering degree
  • Ideally an RPEQ accreditation
  • The ability to work unrestricted in Australia

You will receive:

  • An excellent salary between $200-250k inclusive of superannuation
  • Work from home (2 days a week) and flexibility with working hours
  • The ability to be part of the equity program (by invite only)
