About TMR

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is a department of the Queensland Government, formed in April 2009 with the merger of the Queensland Transport and the Department of Main Roads. The department manages Queensland's approximately 33,000 km state-controlled road network, which includes more than 6,500 bridges and major culverts.
TMR’s vision is to create a single integrated transport system accessible to everyone. The Department moves and connects people, places, goods and services – safely, efficiently and effectively. The driving force behind all of these things are their people. They employ over 8500 dedicated employees who share a common value – to drive positive change and to make a difference.

The Opportunity

In the role of Manager (Delivery & Operations) and as a member of the District Leadership Team based in Cloncurry, you will support the Regional Director in achieving the region’s strategic outcomes by sponsoring, coordinating and accepting final accountability for the delivery of the regions’ total program of infrastructure projects.
Accountabilities include:
  • Provide project management leadership and strategic, operational advice concerning infrastructure program management.
  • Monitor and report on the progress of projects against program priorities.
  • Develop and maintain ongoing constructive relationships with various external stakeholders, including other government bodies and the general community.
  • Ensure the application of all relevant standards, policies, guidelines and legislative requirements to ensure quality outcomes across the entire infrastructure program.
  • Resolve complex technical issues on projects and prepare submissions that lead to overall performance improvement.

  • A Degree in Civil Engineering that is acceptable for corporate membership to Engineers Australia
  • Registration as a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) is required for permanent appointment, however a fixed-term contract can be offered to the preferred candidate as long as they are eligible for registration.
