$140-180k + super

Have you been struggling to take a step up in your career? This is a great opportunity to build and lead your own team

  • Build + lead your own team with support
  • Be rewarded professionally and financially for your hard work
  • Work with genuinely good people

You're a senior civil engineer with ambitions to continue growing your career and take the leap into leadership. You're already managing clients and your own projects. You have your own ideas and thoughts, and you want to turn them into reality. However, your current employer is already well-established. They already have a leader, and future development pathways seem a long way away!

Perhaps you're fantastic technically, and you love dealing with people, however, because you're not a 'business development person', you've been overlooked for a promotion.

Or, you're already an experienced associate civil engineer. You're doing all the work! You're doing business development, managing projects, recruiting, and training the team, and making the business money! But you're not getting the reward for it.

If any of these apply, then we should absolutely be having a discussion.

Our client is an engineering consultancy that is making big waves in the civil and structural space. As of today, they are small-medium business, currently with a team of 40 engineers and drafters. They offer Structural Engineering, Façade Engineering and Civil Engineering services.

Their management team are group of entrepreneurial and ambitious team. They are working towards building our team to twice the current size over the next 2 years. This means there are great opportunities for career progression for people who share their values, who are ambitious and want to contribute in a meaningful way to a growing firm.

They are looking to recruit a Principal civil engineer who has been waiting for an opportunity to lead. To build something from the ground up, put their own stamp on things, and be rewarded professionally and financially for their efforts. With support of course!

The projects are mainly on significant multi-rise residential and mixed-use buildings at the moment, however do also a mix of other projects such as schools, aged care, industrial, adaptive reuse, etc. and would include the design and master planning of subdivisions, land and earthworks, minor roads and pavements, stormwater drainage and WSUD.

Culturally - these people are one of our favourites to work with. They have built their business off the back of 'just being good people', and this transcends across the business. They put their employees first, promote and encourage diversity, and offer continuous development opportunities both professionally and financially.
