Job Description

➡️ The Company
This is an Australian-owned, tier-two engineering design consultancy that has been established and operational across Australia for over 30 years.  The company has three high-performing offices and just over 70 people who work for them across both civil and structural disciplines.
They have previously completed several prestigious projects across Australia and are currently working on developments across medium-rise commercial and residential projects, as well as institutional – aged care, healthcare, and schools. Typically, the business work on buildings between 5 and 12 stories in height and in some circumstances rise up to 15-20.  As well as traditional reinforced concrete and steel design, this company is known for its specialist design work on post-tension slabs.
➡️ The Role
Employed full-time from the company’s Sydney office, your role will be working within the building structures team, working on a variety of projects that will encompass multilevel developments and will comprise of concrete, steel, and timber elements.
Your role as Senior Structural Drafter will report to the structural lead and will be predominately a hands-on modeling position using Revit, whilst managing the workload and output of younger, less experienced drafters in the team. Although, the main focus of your role will be the management and delivery of workload. 
As it normally is the way, the senior will typically be involved in coordinating between other stakeholders internal and external of the business, attending coordination and client meetings and inspections on-site, so expect to have this form the other responsibilities of the role.
➡️ The Candidate
Due to the nature and focus of the position, an experienced, technically orientated candidate forms a large component of the role. Also, as part of the management aspect, a personable, understanding, and positive attitude, together with an ability to communicate effectively will also be a major factor in the success of this position.
Project experience does form an important part of the hiring criteria and it is preferable if candidates are to have demonstrable experience in multilevel building structures. That last bit is an ideal rather than an essential. A competent, proficient user of Revit is high on the prerequisite agenda, however.
  • Minimum of 6 years experience working in structural drafting on building structure projects in Australia.
  • Tertiary qualification in structural engineering or structural drafting.
  • Relevant experience in the design of buildings using Revit.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills to liaise with the team, managers, and clients.
