About the Organisation
With a national footprint and offices across Australia, our client are leaders in the field of piling and ground engineering, with projects across Australia which include technically challenging and complex projects in the infrastructure, mining, industrial, building and marine engineering sectors.  With South Australia always providing a solid stream of revenue, they are now seeking to establish a local management team through a new Adelaide-based office.

About the Opportunity
Being part of a national business, they have strong systems, processes, support networks, and subject-matter experts for you to bounce off. Whilst you will be one of the first to arrive in this local Adelaide-based team, you will have an outstanding platform for you to develop an intimate understanding of all things design and construction management, mentored and managed by one of the most senior and respected figures in the business.

You will be working very closely with the State Manager, involved in tenders, basic design work, and field-based project management/ site supervision within ground engineering, piling, and foundation work in the infrastructure and construction sectors. The role comes with outstanding career development opportunities which could see you becoming the next SA Construction Manager!

  • Engineering Qualified (Civil/ Structural/ Geotechnical)
  • Minimum of 3+ years industry experience
  • Preferable experience in piling, foundations or geotechnical work.
  • Well-developed commercial and contractual acumen (you will receive plenty of support in this area).
  • Be detailed-orientated, methodical and receptive to new ideas and guidance
  • Possess outstanding written and verbal communication and the ability to build rapport with peers, clients and suppliers.
  • Have a genuine desire to make a difference, challenge the status quo and contribute towards continuous improvement in an organisation that prides itself on being different.
  • Must be comfortable in working across all aspects of the project lifecycle, whether tendering, doing design work, or being on-site and ensuring projects are delivered to cost and schedule.
  • This is an Adelaide based role, with some travel required 
  • My client is open to discussing relocation packages to interstate applicants.
With this long-term role, this is a career development opportunity not to be missed and an employer that values your well-being and contribution regardless of your position within the business.

With project work across different sectors including transport, marine, industrial, and mining, you will be exposed to an exciting variety of projects in different locations which will require you to have the versatility to work in both urban and regional locations at times.

Whilst contracting experience is preferable, this role is also open to those who are currently in a consulting/design-based role but dream of getting out onto site to watch designs become reality!
