About the Opportunity

CPB Contractors has been selected to deliver the Screening and Baggage Upgrade at Melbourne Airport Terminal 1 and we are looking for an experienced Project Engineer (day & night shift) with either an electrical, mechanical or building services background.

This project has multiple workstreams that will need to be upgraded including the customer and staff screening locations, self-service baggage drop, baggage handling screening machines, access control upgrades and CCTV upgrades.   These upgrades will be throughout the entire Qantas terminal and will have a direct impact on improving baggage handling and customer experience throughout the terminal.   The upgrades will be carried out in the live environment of the Qantas terminal and as such we are looking for people that have a particular eye for planning and are very detailed focus.

The role accountabilities are to:

  • Enforce and promote safety culture and requirements on site.
  • Review the construction documentation and assist in the development of the “scope of works” for sub-contractors
  • Assist the Senior Project Engineer and commercial team in the procurement of the Sub Contractor packages
  • Work with the sub-contractors in;
    • Creating 6 week look ahead programmes and create a day-by-day programme
    • Develop daily work task lists
    • Using the above feed into the approval to work and outage process
    • Develop detailed planning information to customer relations team in order to arrange access and outages.
  • Assist in monitoring of sub-contractor performance on site

  • Provide regular reporting internally on progress, quality etc.

Minimum requirements for this role are:

  • Bachelor’s degree in either electrical or mechanical engineering
  • Building Services or trade equivalent with project management experience (a must)
  • Construction site experience
  • Strong project management and communications skills
  • Experience in working in live environments
  • Willingness to work night shift work when required

This role will be most appealing to a person that values very high detailed planning above all else.  As this is in a live environment and there is very small windows of opportunity to carry out the works it is imperative that the planning is completed not just well but well above average.  

The engineering team on this project will be quite niche and will work close together, the successful applicant will have access to senior managers on the project as well as subject matter experts where needed so will also provide a great career opportunity and advancement if performance is high. 

If you are interested in this role and meet the above requirements, please apply today.

We support diversity in the workplace. Women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and people with a multicultural background are strongly encouraged to apply.
