Job description

Navartis is currently partnered with a global renewable energy firm with big plans for utility scale solar farm projects in Australia. With another project about to commence in Western Australia, they are now searching to hire an experienced Civil engineer to take ownership of both the design review and construction deliverables of their projects.

As the successful applicant, you will be able to demonstrate previous expertise working on large scale solar farm projects here in Australia. With your extensive knowledge in this field, you will be expected to manage the design review process, liaising with the engaged design consultancy and ensuring all site works being completed are to the correct standards with a focus on the civil structural aspects of solar farm projects. Your knowledge in this field will allow you to pick up on any anomalies in the design and ensure that the work is being constructed to the relevant standards for this element of the project.

Design review is not the only aspect to your role on site. As you have been through the construction life cycle of a solar farm previously, you will be expected to manage the principal contractor conducting the civil structural package of work and take ownership of this element of the project. You will do this with regular liaison with the contractors by conducting quality reviews on site, ensuring the works carried out are conforming to the relevant standards as per the design.

This position is being offered on a permanent basis with a negotiable salary package for the right applicant. Naturally solar farms are not built in metropolitan locations, and this position is approximately 3 hours from Perth. However, unlike other remote projects the expected work roster is Monday to Friday, with weekends your own to go home to Perth. Accommodation and meal allowance will be provided during the week. With the nature of the work roster it is expected that you will either already live in Perth or be prepared to relocate to Perth.

Post project completion the opportunity will be there for you to move onto their next projects around the country should you wish to do so and have performed to a high standard. The pipeline of projects for this organisation is very healthy so this should be considered as a long term career opportunity.

If this position is of interest to you please get in touch with Paul Harris on 02 8080 0112 for a confidential discussion, or apply online today.
