Job Description

The Project Engineer Water and Waste is a key operational role in Tablelands Regional Council's Infrastructure Services team. The position will champion the project management of Council's water, wastewater and waste infrastructure projects, as well as contribute to the strategic planning of these important assets.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Management of capital and operational projects with a focus on providing efficient service delivery at agreed service levels;
  • Review and advice of the alignment between infrastructure requirements and future capital works planning;

The role requires an engineer experienced in all phases of the project management of water and wastewater and waste assets, from concept through to completion, including managing the design, procurement and construction phase, and providing site supervision and contract administration. Your knowledge of local government operations and quality management systems will be critical for your success in this position.

Your strong experience in project management will see you succeed in a team dedicated to excellence and innovation. You will enjoy working to achieve outcomes as opposed to working to simply complete a task. Your positive attitude and willingness to contribute will ensure job satisfaction.

You must be an Australian Citizen or hold the appropriate visa to work in Australia to apply for this role.
