Working for a big consultancy firm can be great - we get it. You get to work on major projects out of a flashy office, and the company can look great on your CV.

But sometimes, it can be hard to pick up responsibility quickly. You can regularly be kept back of the house, whilst your seniors and associates liaise with the clients. Your manager is likely managing a team of 10+ engineers, and they don't have time to give you hands-on, one-on-one training. It can be hard to stand out in a crowd!

Our client can offer something different.

They've been in the industry for over 20 years, and their ethos of 'just being good people', has led to them building a repeat client base across New South Wales.

Whilst they are small (around 25), they compete on the big end of town (think, the Ribbon big), delivering projects across aged care, commercial, education, residential and healthcare sectors.

They give their staff responsibility when they are ready, not when they hit a certain year of experience or grade. If you want to be more technical, they will give you hands-on, one-to-one training, if you want to be more commercial, they'll get you involved in client meetings, if you want to manage people, they will give you the opportunity to do so.

Culturally - these guys 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.

They work hard, but they have fun whilst they are doing it. They prefer their staff to be in the office at least 4 days a week, as they feel this is the best way to learn, but they try to make their environment as fun as possible…. So, work doesn't always feel like work.

They are now looking to hire a senior fire protection engineer that is looking to take a step up into a team leader or associate position. You will be able to hold your own on small and medium size projects and have FPAS accreditation and NER/CPEng chartership. You won't be micro-managed and will be given the freedom to manage projects and the team in a way that you see fit. They want you to focus on good, innovative engineering, and building good relationships with clients. There is a clear opportunity to grow from day one.
