  • Build equity within a well-established office

The role

Our client has a very well-established client base in Canberra. In fact, 40% of their work is ACT based and is 90% of that is repeat business. At the moment, there is a small office in Canberra, with most of the work pushed to Sydney resources.

They are now looking for an Associate, or Associate Director (Mechanical), to build and manage the mechanical team in ACT.

There would be future opportunity to manage the office as things start to develop.

This role would initially be managing projects at a high level, whilst building relationships with existing clients, managing resources, and building and offering mentorship to a growing team.

There would be support from day one from the Sydney team who regularly travel down to ACT, and although there would be hands on project involvement, you wouldn’t just be thrown into the deep end and left to your own devices.

Who this role might be suitable for?

This position would be a fantastic opportunity for an experienced mechanical engineer that is at the point in their career where they want to build something for themselves and be rewarded for their hard work.

Perhaps you are working for a Tier 1 consultancy in a similar role and have become tired of ‘red tape’ and ‘corporate hierarchy’ and have been looking for complete autonomy to work in a way you enjoy.

Or, you might be working extremely hard for a smaller, privately owned consultancy, and have been looking to get some skin in the game.

Neither of those may be relevant, and you could just be a very driven senior engineer looking to take a step up either right away, or in the near future.

Either way, our client would love to speak with you!
