Our client is a top contractor and is currently positioned for further growth. The business has continued to become more commercial, more responsive and has the objective of growth, efficiency and quality.

Our client’s broad multidisciplinary capability is demonstrated in the delivery of both small and large scale projects, across the infrastructure, oil and gas, mining and building sectors.

This is a unique opportunity to be a key person in the re-invigorated Perth office and to capitalise on upcoming project opportunities in the market. Our client is looking to employ a Senior Bridge Project Engineer with more than eight years of experience in civil engineering projects with strong bridge construction experience.
