Queensland’s racing industry makes a substantial contribution to the State’s economy and is a significant employer of tens-of-thousands of Queenslanders. The industry also plays an important role in galvanising communities, particularly in rural and regional areas, as people come together to celebrate the iconic sport of racing.
Racing Queensland (RQ) is a statutory body established under the Racing Act 2002. Its primary purpose is to promote, enhance and provide a platform to service the industry across three codes of racing: Thoroughbred, Greyhound and Harness.
RQ’s vision is to connect people through the thrill of racing, and its mission is to be Queensland’s favourite sport and Australia’s best sporting jurisdiction. The Development and Construction department bring that vision to life through the formulation and implementation of targeted strategies for commercial development, master planning and deployment of significant projects.
Reporting to the General Manager, RQ is seeking a Project Engineer with demonstrated experience in the project management of building or infrastructure works. The Project Engineer will have responsibility for the delivery of a portfolio of minor works projects of varying value and scale for race clubs throughout Queensland.
The Success Profile
The Project Engineer will be a resilient, results-focused team member, with demonstrated experience in the scoping, tendering and delivery of small scale construction projects in either building or infrastructure industry. You will be highly effective at managing internal and external stakeholder relationships at all levels including the programming and prioritising of competing delivery requirements.
With relevant tertiary qualifications in engineering (civil or structural) or construction management and a track record of managing a diverse program of works for an asset owner, you will build trust and credibility, demonstrating superior interpersonal skills aligned with RQ’s values.
You are experienced in managing financial outcomes within a politically complex and dynamic environment with demonstrable experience in achieving targets within tight timeframes.
We recruit values-aligned people into Racing Queensland who lead by example and thrive on delivering results in a fast-paced, high performance culture.
