AECOM Quality Engineer - Defence in Darwin, Australia
Australia - , Darwin
AECOM’s Construction Services business is expanding! We have an exciting contracting opportunity for an experienced Quality Control (QC) Engineer to assist in the delivery of our key Defence base in Darwin.
As a QC Engineer with a world leader in engineering and construction services across some of the biggest civil engineering projects throughout the globe, you will be exposed to a major project and a variety of stakeholders across complex project phases.
Our current opportunity will allow a suitable QC Engineer to start immediately for a period of 6 months with a view for extension. This role will include both night shift and day shift rosters in relation to project demands at the time, depending on project stages and delivery requirements.
A suitable QC Engineer will be keen to work in a fast-paced and autonomous work environment and has major contractor experience in order to thrive across our complex projects and have a strong understanding of the managing contractor model, as well and interfacing with a variety of stakeholders.
The successful QC Engineer will work across a key package of works throughout the outlined QC program and due to the nature and site (Defence) of construction, suitable applicants will requite Australian Citizenship.
The QC Engineer will therefore cover on-site and off-site work and must be keyed to the work sequence. No construction work or testing will be performed unless the QC Engineer or Manager is on the work site and will report to the Project Superintendent, therefore the role will require an independent and solutions-drive QC Engineer.
The QC Engineer, Project Superintendent and Project Manager will work together effectively as a team to ensure all buildings systems and assets perform to requirements of the contract to our client.
