Team Leader – Structural Engineer
Currently in a corporate environment, where the projects are large and the work is stable? You however dislike the rigidity of how things are done and the red tape and hurdles you must jump through are onerous. This would make getting the green light on new resources or attacking new tenders a drawn out process due to the approvals needed.
The benefit of a mid sized firm, without this red tape and rigidity, is the ability to operate with more of an entrepreneurial spirit. You make the decisions and run your team according to your ideals of how a business unit should be run.
There is also more flexibility in terms of getting that ideal balance between work and personal life, such as extra annual leave, flexibility around start and finish times, time in lieu etc.
The major carrot however, is the real and achievable bonuses for your individual performance and the fees brought in to the business. This is your chance to make some serious money on top of your base, these targets are set based on your track record to date and the capability of the existing division you are stepping into. You make the decisions about your team and the work you access to ensure this is realistic.
This prominent consultancy, whilst not one of the first tiers, has a national footprint and broad capability across the structures space. With key strengths in the high rise, retail and industrial arena, they have by no means pigeon holed their capability.
Your job will be to utilise your personal brand in the Brisbane market and monopolise on the reputation that already exists within the current clientele, to lead a team on delivering quality outputs.

Requires’ Ideally 10+years locally with a solid career history in the local Brisbane market. Engineering Degree and ideally RPEQ.
