job description

Randstad is looking for switched on and eager systems engineers looking to take their next career step in an amazing company. On offer are various full time permanent opportunities for mid to senior engineers experienced within defence and/or the space sector.

Projects are mainly all based in defence at the moment, however they also undertake projects associated with spacecraft re-entry and this will be a strong focus in the foreseeable future. They also have an exciting new division to the business which is currently in the R&D stage and engineers will have the possibility to gain exposure to these areas.

At present, the Canberra based engineers are all working on Defence projects, primarily in the early stage conceptual design phase. Good stakeholder relationship skills are absolutely essential, as these projects will require you to run workshops with the client and work very closely with client stakeholders.

Our client has been voted one of the best places to work by its own employees and fosters an excellent working culture on all levels.

To qualify for these roles you must be a Systems Engineer with the following:

  • Several years experience in systems engineering in defence sector
  • Excellent stakeholder relationship skills
  • Active Security Clearance (NV1 or higher preferred)
  • Bachelor’s degree with relevance to Systems Engineering
  • Exposure to all aspects of the engineering lifecycle, not just early stage conceptual design
  • Project management and technical engineering experience on complex projects
  • Excellent written and verbal communication

Remuneration on offer will depend on the skillset, experience and experitise which you can bring to their team. Your salary expectations and the salary on offer will be discussed with myself in a confidential discussion.

This company has serious growth plans for Canberra, aiming to double the size of this organisation over the coming years with top talent and their recruitment commences now.

There is a very strong pipeline of work for the broader business, including the defence and transport sectors and also their R&D arm, to ensure they remain ahead of the curve.

If you are interested in applying for a job with this company, please apply to this advertisement, or, alternatively reach out to me with your resume via email.

At Randstad, we are passionate about providing equal employment opportunities and embracing diversity to the benefit of all. We actively encourage applications from any background.
