Do you want to work for an established, successful business that operates with a flatter management structure? Are you looking for a role where the directors are visible and approachable?

The business consists of just over 35 professionals across Brisbane and Gold Coast. Most people are based in Brisbane and currently work in the Cannon Hill area.

Service offerings include pre-construction, in-house building design, drafting, engineering, soil testing, as well as 3D rendering, industrial buildings, new homes, commercial & residential developments, renovations and refurbishment projects.

The business is proud of their open-door policy approach and strives to create a culture about teamwork and everyone feeling welcome.

The team enjoy the office banter, but also recognise the importance of hard work and quiet time to ensure high productivity and timely delivery of projects.
This is a personable business that has built their brand and reputation on being knowledgeable,  approachable and reliable. The people who work here, are team players with a common goal of exceeding their client’s expectations.
As a Senior Structural Drafter, your role within this business is very important. You will be the glue that cements the drafting team and will ensure delivery of all projects within allocated timeframes.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager and not only producing detailed structural engineering drawings, but you will also have the benefit of supervising and maintaining quality control of other drafters in the team, as well as coordinating with clients and key stakeholders including builders, architects, civil designers, and surveyors.
Your team in structures currently consists of four engineers and three drafters who all work on residential, industrial, and commercial developments throughout Southeast Queensland. Typically, you will focus on the luxury and low-rise - mid-rise residential sectors.
Your personality and approach is everything! You will have the skills but also the ability to connect with your colleagues and stakeholders. You don’t have to be a ‘people person’, but it’s important that you work well with others and can communicate effectively to management and external (of the business) stakeholders. 
Your skillset and experience should include:  
  • A high level of interpersonal skills, with the ability to liaise effectively in a clear and concise manner with clients and staff.
  • 6+ years of structural drafting experience and some degree of mentoring or management exposure.
  • Proficient in the use of AutoCAD and various timber and steel framing design software - Hyne, Tedds.
