Engineering Design Opportunities
Centrally located in Sydney’s Inner West, Strathfield Council is a medium-sized, unique suburban region, boasting one of the earliest settlements in Sydney and home to the historic and magnificent ‘Golden Triangle’ residential precinct. With an area of approximately 14.1 square kilometres and an estimated population of 40,000 residents, it is well-serviced by public transport with Strathfield station being a major CityRail and CountryLink train interchange and bus terminus. There are excellent independent and public educational establishments, including Meriden School for Girls and The Catholic University, within the area.
As Strathfield Council negotiates its future with the bordering Councils of Burwood and Canada Bay, it continues to grow and forge its way forward. Two permanent engineering team management positions have become available within the Infrastructure Planning Group. These positions will be integral roles in the future of a merged Council, if the merger proceeds.
The Civil Engineering Design Manager will coordinate the day-to-day operations of the Civil Design team
The Urban Service Design Manager will coordinate the day-to-day operations of the Urban Design team
Reporting to the Manager Infrastructure Planning, the two positions will oversee and promote the efficient and effective operations of their respective teams, develop the Council’s Capital Works program and work collaboratively with the Service Delivery team. Your can-do approach, people skills, detailed design experience, knowledge of civil and/or urban design ‘best practice’, a commitment to broad community consultation on projects, and management of complex tasks are essential to these positions. Civil Engineering qualifications and a proven team approach is also essential.
Attractive remuneration packages are offered for both positions.
Candidates must address the selection criteria outlined in the Information Package, available from Blackadder Associates Pty Ltd. Contact Russell Lloyd on 0418 254 919 or send your CV to email@example.com to obtain the Package and to discuss either position in confidence.
Please note: To be considered for these positions you must be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident without visa restrictions.
