Just imagine your future with us…

At Aurecon we see the future through a very different lens. Do you?

Innovation, eminence and digital are at the heart of everything we do. Are you excited about the future?

Are you driven by the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging and complex projects around the world and to learn from the best? We are.

Diversity is at the core of everything we do. We work together to create a culture based on respect, trust and inclusiveness. Our differences are what fuel our creativity.

We embrace flexible working and are always open to discussing your individual needs so that you get to create your own experience with us.

What will you do?

This role presents a unique opportunity to join our Melbourne Transport team, which spans a broad range of capability in operations from operational planning, operational safety, strategic operational advisory, service planning through to readiness and integration. We know the work we do is vital in assisting our world’s economic development and, it’s the technical expertise and the depth of knowledge of our people that really sets us apart. Here are the key things you will do to ‘bring ideas to life’.
  • Work on complex and major rail projects
  • Lead other technical personnel in delivering key tasks for clients
  • Provide strategic rail operational advice, guidance and strategies in effectively providing the necessary operational elements to significant rail network changes
  • Deliver relevant areas of projects within proposed deadlines and budgets
  • Develop operational concepts and strategic plans in engagement with a multitude of stakeholders
We know today’s complex challenges can only be solved through bringing together diverse teams of people from across our business, so there will be opportunities for you to apply your skills and creativity to projects in other geographies and markets.

What can you bring to the team?

Firstly, you will share our genuine passion for being at the forefront of rail operations advisory and be someone that actively pursues collaborating and engaging with others to help shape future rail networks. You will need extensive applied knowledge and experience in rail operations and exposure within rail operators. It is also highly desirable for you to have the following skills:
  • In depth and broad operational railway knowledge, across multiple areas of railway operations
  • A working understanding of typical railway operational practices and preferably rail operational safety
  • Experience in developing strategic operational railway documentation such as a Concept of Operations
  • General working knowledge of railway maintenance practices
  • Ability to support and engage with multiple stakeholders across the varied disciplines of assurance, engineering and design
Our Aurecon Attributes describe the types of people we bring together for clients. We don’t expect you to have all eight of the attributes, but one that is unique to you.

Finally, we value that each of our team members brings something different to Aurecon. We look for people who have had a broad range of experiences throughout their career and can demonstrate how they have worked as part of a team to bring ideas to life. Does that sound like you?
