About us

With a strong focus on people, culture, and services we have earned a reputation as a premier contractor, attracting high-calibre employees, clients, and projects.

Plus, when you work away on projects you will also get generous project allowances and additional leave.

About the roles

Due to multiple new awards, we are looking for a number of Site Engineers for projects across Qld and northern NSW.


Reporting to the Project Manager, you will be given the opportunity to work alongside a supportive and collaborative delivery team, contributing to the successful growth of a business with a strong pipeline of works on the books.


Typical duties include:


  • Implementing or creating innovative, cost-efficient construction methodologies and techniques;
  • Working actively with Supervisors and the workforce to eliminate the requirement to repeat activities;
  • Assisting the Superintendent and Supervisor with tasks delegated by the Project Engineer/Manager;
  • The continuous monitoring of the program throughout the life of the project ensuring milestones are completed on time;
  • In conjunction with Superintendents and Supervisors, assisting with planning the resources required to achieve the construction program (plant, labour, and subcontractors) and sourcing;
  • Assisting with planning and implementing the procurement of materials and subcontractors to achieve construction programs;
  • Working with Supervisors to recognise variations, quantity increases or decreases, and any additional scope of works for the production of appropriate variation correspondence;
  • Monitoring day costs for activities with Supervisors and making adjustments if unit costs are excessive;
  • Providing information for the end-of-month project costs report with the Project Engineer/Manager;
  • Implementing environmental controls where the risk to the environment is serious enough to require monitoring.


About you

To join our talented team you will need the following:


  • A Civil Engineering degree;
  • Min 2 years experience in cost engineering/productivity on DTMR and/or TfNSW projects;
  • Sound technical knowledge;
  • Proven ability to work as part of a team that is driven by success;
  • Excellent analytical, communication, and interpersonal skills;
  • Be self-motivated and adaptable with a can-do attitude;
  • Be willing to travel and work away from home when required.
