Job Description


Australian building services and sustainability consultancy providing ESD, mechanical, electrical, fire, vertical transportation and associated engineering services.

Excellent Reputation in the industry for first class projects, innovative technology & systems, workplace flexibility and employee satisfaction - with 60+ employees across Sydney, Brisbane & Gold Coast, they have over 20% celebrating long service anniversaries above 10+ years.

Even during this time of COVID-19, they are looking to employ due to an extensive list of large  ongoing projects across Australia’s East Coast and are looking for senior level engineers.

As a whole business they complete between 300 - 400 projects per annum across interesting & varied work. This is made up of some small projects such as occasional ESD Design work but also includes large projects involving all disciplines. Example project sectors include: Casino’s, Hospitals, Commercial & Residential High-Rise, Government, Hotels & Institutional.

A lot of their business is from repeat clients who continue to use them because of their attentiveness and quality. They are an extremely high performing team and expect a lot of each and every individual whilst providing plenty of structure and support to be successful.


Each office has a discipline leader and currently, there is a vacancy for a Senior Lead Electrical Engineer in the Sydney team.

This role will see you mentoring the electrical team, seeing and managing clients, overseeing designs, managing projects, and providing leadership and insights internally across the business.

You will report to the Sydney Director and work collaboratively with other discipline leads and other engineers as required on varied projects and clients.
This is an opportunity to essentially have your own business within a business - to grow and manage your own clients, projects, and your own team.

This is extremely autonomous and flexible, allowing you to operate how you please, whilst being backed and supported by a highly successful organisation.
This role would suit someone coming from a tier 1 consultancy with no room to go up higher.


This is a role they want to fill without having to hand hold and want them to hit the ground running with active projects, aside from getting up to speed with company policies and systems.

Looking for someone with the complete package - well-rounded, motivated, personable, enthusiastic and can think individually who doesn’t have one set way of doing things.
