Project Engineer
Work Location: Brisbane, QLD
Role Overview
The Project Engineer assists the Area Project Engineer to co-ordinate engineering activities across a plant area within a major plant area and/or scope area through defining, coordinating and reviewing the scope to be performed by the appointed design consultants to deliver engineering for the assigned facilities.

Additionally, the Project Engineer supports and provides assistance in the integration of the design consultant deliverables into the study output and project delivery.
