Job Description

Our client is rightly proud of their presence as a market leader in the field of providing turnkey solutions in the areas of design, build and construction of structures in vertical markets such as Defence, Industrial, Rail and Recreation. They will also be seeking to expand their core interests to take advantage of the reputation they have in existing markets. As a private company with strong continuous financial results, their point of difference is a complete focus on quality and safety by utilising well qualified and trusted in-house resources as opposed to sub-contracting elements of contracts out. In a highly competitive industry, they have developed a reputation for delivering on budget and on schedule in compliance with all relevant Australian Standards and therefore their customer base is loyal and diverse.

Reporting to the CEO and leading a direct team of 5 (total team of circa 30), you will take complete ownership of driving the operational side of the business. Overseeing the business units of Project Management, Fabrication, Rigging and Design it will be expected that you will take a hands on approach to ensuring that each part of the operational process is being run at its most efficient and that the CEO is kept informed on all aspects of operational performance. Areas of particular focus will be developing operational planning, production of reports including commentary, managing key client and internal relationships and driving the operational aspects of the group strategy. In addition you should have a strong reputation in your field and be a person with a marketing mindset alongside your technical engineering/building/drafting skills.

The successful candidate will be a driven individual with a background in the construction industry. You thrive in a leadership role where you drive performance but relish getting hands on in operations, all the while having a high attention to detail while consistently hitting deadlines. A tertiary qualification in construction or engineering would be well regarded as would a commercial post graduate qualification. This role is an excellent opportunity to make a difference for this private company and potentially stand in for the CEO when the opportunity arises.
