Project Engineers

With the Commonwealth Government’s recent announcement of a $100m investment, supported by the State Government’s $70m commitment into TI’s next five irrigation schemes and the potential for a further five schemes involving initial feasibility studies, these 10 schemes have a delivery timeline of eight to ten years.

In order to achieve these design and delivery timelines, we are searching for two (2) Project Engineers from a civil or mechanical background. You may be a Civil/Structural Engineer with experience in large dam construction and pipeline infrastructure works, a Mechanical Engineer managing large scale greenfield or brownfield projects from the oil & gas sector, a Mining Engineer with involvement in dewatering and tailings dam projects or a Marine & Offshore Systems Engineer with coastal and subsea pipeline experience.

The Project Engineer may be appointed to a specific project or support a variety of projects across the State under the direction of the Engineering Manager. They will possess a high degree of technical ability around water and pipeline hydraulics, have a history of working on design and construction projects, an ability to undertake complex investigations and understand the requirement for robust contractual documentation practices.

Working for TI provides the Project Engineer the opportunity to be involved in the full engineering project from Initiation to Completion, with the ability to influence design and construction outcomes.

Additionally, you will be a proven communicator with highly developed negotiation skills.

Whilst hosted from the northern Tasmanian office, the successful applicants will have the ability utilise their professional engineering skills, competencies and knowledge on-site in a sometimes rugged and extreme working environment. There may be the requirement for extended stays in regional areas of Tasmania throughout the design and construction phases of various projects.

If you are a “Returning Tasmanian” or have a desire to relocate and be based in Tasmania’s northern region….then this could be your next career opportunity!

A generous remuneration package is on offer commensurate with relevant qualifications and experience. Relocation assistance is available and would be discussed with the successful applicants.
