**Job Summary**

Our civil water resources team support a variety of projects in the transport, water, urban development, and defence, markets. We are seeking experienced stormwater design engineers to help us deliver some of the most exciting projects across Sydney and Australia.

The initial focus of this role will be supporting an existing workload of high profile urban infrastructure projects in Sydney, ranging from major transport upgrades to urban renewals. The role would generally involve assessment of existing urban drainage systems, development and interpretation of flood models, design of new and upgraded drainage and flood management infrastructure and systems, and associated reporting. However, the role offers a significant opportunity to establish yourself within a diverse and growing team of water resources professionals, and to ultimately broaden your experience across the wider water resources sector.

You will be responsible for:

+ Leading civil drainage design aspects for major social infrastructure projects. Coordinate design packages and lead project drainage design teams

+ Undertaking functional and detailed design of stormwater networks including pipe systems, retarding basins and WSUD.

+ Working with project managers, clients and contractors to develop stormwater solutions

+ Documentation including written reports

+ Preparation of winning proposal documentation

**Minimum Requirements**

+ Bachelor’s degree in civil or civil/environmental engineering.

+ At least 2 years post-graduate experience, most likely in consulting engineering or a similar local/state government role.

+ Experience using industry-standard hydrologic and hydraulic modelling software packages (eg. WBNM, RAFTS, HEC-RAS, MIKE 11, TUFLOW).

+ Experience using GIS (eg. MapInfo or ArcGIS) and/or CAD software.

+ A keen interest in understanding the nature of flooding, interactions with the built environment, and development of project-specific solutions within the context of wider floodplain risk management.

We anticipate that the role best suits a level of industry experience in the range 2 to 5 years, but engineers with up to 10 years’ experience are encouraged to apply as a more senior role could also be created to suit the right mix of skills and experience.

**Preferred Qualifications**

+ Experience with 12d, DRAINS and MUSIC software, and in analysis/design of urban drainage systems.

+ Exposure to broader water resources projects, in particular relating to water quality assessment and modelling.
