This support will be provided through the development, management and implementation of project specific engineering solutions and activities related to these projects. You will also be required to liaise with Veolia’s Operations teams and Sydney Water to coordinate resolution of issues arising from projects in a timely and effective manner. 

The ideal applicant will have an engineering background, previous project management experience on complex projects and the ability to liaise confidently with internal and external stakeholders.

In this role, you'll discover

Great people... and a company that cares 
From your teammates in operations, to colleagues and partners across Veolia, you’ll find people who care about doing a good job. And you’ll belong in a company that truly cares - about the customer, the community, the environment... and you.

‘Team’ works here - it’s who we are 
Reporting to the Operations Manager, you’ll work closely with the teams across the 3 sites, as well as various suppliers and contractors. And you’ll learn from them, as much as they learn from you. 

Stimulation and challenge, delivered
While ‘Operations’ is about process and rhythm, you’ll find plenty of variety in your role. In addition to managing complex projects, you’ll play a key role in measuring and reporting the facility’s output, maintaining a robust safety culture and identifying more efficient ways of working that don’t compromise safety or quality. 

Opportunity and growth, there for the taking
In this role, you will develop and build skills that will make you a key asset to the business. Many of our Supervisors have continued to progress their career with us, moving into supervisor, manager and site manager roles.
