Feel like a complete change, and a desire to work in Australia?

Our client has a number of excellent opportunities for Senior Traffic Engineers / Transport Planners to join their large transport planning teams based in Eastern Australia, who work on a range of challenging and innovative projects throughout the country and elsewhere overseas.

With at least 5 years relevant experience, some or all of which will be within a consultancy, you will be degree qualified, and have the ability to manage small to medium sized projects, including taking financial responsibility, and responsibility for delivery.

Broad experience in the field of traffic engineering / transport planning is required. The role entails experience in traffic engineering, survey design, data analysis, problem solving, the use of operational transport modelling packages and, potentially, road safety and traffic signal design.

Experience in microsimulation and/or corridor traffic/transport modelling packages for the simulation, analysis and assessment of major urban infrastructure projects, and/or a high degree of aptitude in traffic engineering (design, safety etc.) is needed.

In respect of microsimulation, experience on VISSIM would be ideal (PARAMICS considered), and proficiency in Junctions 8/9 (ARCADY and PICADY) and LinSig would be very welcome. The package most used by our client is SIDRA (intersection and network capacity software), but training will be given on this if needed providing you have good Junctions 8/9 experience.

The position will involve working with small teams of engineers, modellers and planners, to assist them in developing technical solutions to clients’ problems through high quality project delivery.

Excellent levels of written and oral communication skills are required for this position, as is the ability to work autonomously and take responsibility for the quality of deliverables and meeting project deadlines. The position will also entail the help and support of the more junior members in the teams.

This role presents an excellent opening for an ambitious individual looking for a complete change of working environment. Our client will offer a competitive salary remuneration package, depending on experience, together with an additional package of benefits including relocation assistance and visa sponsorship.

Interested, and want to find out more? Then please telephone Peter Wills for a confidential chat, or email him your CV and he'll contact you by return. All contact / discussions are in complete confidence.
