Full Time Location : Southport, Gold Coast
Start Date: Available Now
Salary: Negotiable depending on skill and experience (preferably certified or approaching RPEQ, and a minimum of 5 years of experience which includes stormwater management and flood modelling and ideally LGA experience)).

With expertise in Structural, Civil, and Environmental Engineering, Westera has an enviable reputation for delivering superior quality service and caring for our staff. Our diverse and talented team carries a wealth of experience across our broad scope of Civil Engineering projects, which include:
• Land Subdivisions
• Local Government Infrastructure Planning & Design

• Flood Modelling
• Stormwater Management
• Water Sensitive Urban Design

We are offering a strong career path for a Civil Design Engineer with a minimum of five years of post-graduate experience that includes stormwater management and flood modelling. The role offers exposure to the variety of challenging and stimulating projects we work on. Your application should highlight any relevant experience applying various aspects of Civil Engineering to Australian Standards (e.g., stormwater drainage, sewer reticulation, water reticulation, earthworks, road design, construction phase of stormwater management) and working with local government authorities (LGAs) in SEQld. Please include your software experience and capability utilised to deliver this.

All engineers are supported to obtain their registration as this is essential for career progression from mid to senior-level engineering. You will ideally be certified, however, if you are actively pursuing your professional registration please don’t be discouraged from applying to this vacancy in our Brisbane office. Existing RPEQ/CPEng/NER applicants are eligible for higher starting salaries, as indicated above.

The environment is as relaxed and fun as it is fast-paced, professional, and quality driven. All team members must comply with the company’s ISO Accredited Integrated Management System (Quality, Safety and Environment) and contribute to the continuous improvement of the business.

The successful applicant will love finding excellent, innovative solutions for clients and seeing their work come to fruition, with the support of senior technical leads or other mentors in the business as required. We adopt a collaborative working style across multi-disciplinary teams, proven to enhance project success for our clients. Hence, there is an expectation to develop productive internal working relationships. Those inclined will also have the opportunity to develop strong external relationships with our key Clients as you develop your capability and seniority managing the engineering project lifecycle.

Please note Westera is an engineering consultancy firm where even our Managing Partners are on the tools, performing complex design and design reviews as a key component of their leadership roles. As such, the focus in your application should be on experience analysing, designing, and advising across our variety of projects and/or works, rather than site-based engineering roles (although site inspections at various stages of construction will comprise part of the engineering role, as per requirements of the profession for building certifications).

You must have unrestricted Australian work rights and hold a current, unencumbered Australian Driver’s licence to perform this role.

Finally, this is a full-time, permanent role for a Civil Engineering enthusiast who is serious about their professional development and looking to share in the long-term success of our business. Westera values the targeted professional growth of all employees. You will be offered mentoring and development opportunities to ensure you are supported in your chosen career path. All employees participate in the annual Professional Development Planning cycle with encouragement to self-direct personal career development goals that align individual aspirations with organisational objectives. Preferred supports to progress these can include on-the-job learning with exposure to particular projects, bespoke mentoring from others, and external professional training as required.

We also offer an aspirational Associate Program for outstanding emerging leaders, an Employee Referral Program where you could be rewarded for referring your friend to their next job, service recognition awards, and an active social calendar within teams, across regional offices, and company-wide events.

Formal applications should reference PE-1C_GC and include:
• Your current Resume;
• Evidence of your degree qualification or professional registration; and
• A Cover Letter highlighting your alignment with our company and specific career aspirations aligned to our civil engineering works as outlined above.
