Default Civil Engineer Jobs in Queensland/Brisbane

Hi,

I am basically a civil enginner having 3 yrs past experience as site engineer and 4 yrs present experience as Quantity Surveyor. All the experience has been gained by working in the middle east. (Dubai, Qatar and presently Bahrain). I have applied for Australian Visa (as skilled Independent,Subclass 175). My skills assessment has been completed and i have been certified as a Civil Engineer.

I would like to have guidance from people working in Australia in Civil Field as to which kind of Job is best suitable for me when I come there and what kind of preparation I need to do, if any, to be prepared to face interviews and work there.. I would appreciate if u can also give reference of any civil / company websites to look for the present requirement there and be prepared.

I would be extremely thankful for the above information.

Mohsin

Hi Mohsin

I'm an Aussie studying construction management (first year). There are loads of jobs available all over Australia for civil engineers, they are very highly in demand. The biggest demand is in civil construction projects, but there is also demand for QS's, project managers, and construction managers.

People prepared to work in remote mining areas are very well paid, this can be on a fly in fly out basis mainly from Perth or Brisbane.

I believe Ryder Levett Bucknall and Davis Langdon are the biggest QS firms in Australia. I'm sorry I can't tell you who are the big players in civil engineering.

I can tell you that in general Aussie employers want to know that you have skills in teamwork, leadership, problem solving and especially good communication skills, as well as technical knowledge.

Best of luck.

Hi,
Do you have any idea about any demand for Construction Planning Jobs for Planning Engineers apart from Mining Sector.

Hi Mohsin

I'm not quite sure what you mean by Civil Engineer requirements: do you mean jobs available? Or skills required? If you've been assessed as a civil engineer then they must have felt that you had the required skills. For jobs as Banjarawan said you should visit SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site or Find Jobs. Build a Better Career. Find Your Calling. | CareerOne.com.au. Those sites have pretty much all advertised jobs in Australia, but of course not all jobs are advertised. You might like to join up as a member of the AIQS, the AIB and Engineers Australia for some networking, information and support.

For Banjarawan there are certainly planning jobs available, but not as many as there are for civil engineers, QS, project manager, contract administrator etc.

Aussie employers like to see evidence of your non-technical skills, things like that you coach the under 12's cricket team, you're the president of your local chess club, or do volunteer work for example. They are usually not particularly interested in your qualifications except to make sure you have them.

Best of luck

Dear Dunsford,

What I actually meant by Civil Engineering jobs is that I have worked both as Site/Project Engineer for 2 years and working presently as Quantity Surveyor in Bahrain for the Past 4 years dealing with Valuations, Variations, subcontractor payments and certificate's, Claim entitlements....and soo..on...

So I would like look for Job Opportunities in both the fields as, I believe, I am confident in executing whatever job I get in any of the 2 fields.

But the only problem is that I dont have any QS related certified degree, as basically, I graduated as Civil Engineer. What do you suggest?

Also, Do you recommend joining the institutions u mentioned above like "AIQS, the AIB and Engineers Australia" ?

Mohsin
