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?

In this position you will join our Energy business, where you will play an integral part in a team of highly skilled specialists that ‘bring ideas to life’ for our clients across all types of energy infrastructure - from developing new power projects such as large-scale renewable power generation and battery storage projects to optimising the operation of transmission and distribution systems for a variety of industries.

  • Be a recognised expert in power systems analysis and provide subject matter expertise to our internal stakeholders and clients
  • Lead and execute projects, provide technical support and help mentor a team of engineers who will perform power system studies to support planning studies, grid connection projects and most importantly analyse the results from these assessments and explain the system behaviours observed
  • Advise our clients on the development and implementation of power generation projects, energy storage projects, and power networks operation
  • Interface with external clients, network service providers and AEMO
  • Join one of the largest Australian community of specialists in power systems analysis and planning, to work collaboratively across the business and with clients bringing diverse skillsets together and innovation to complex problems
  • Be responsive to client’s needs and have a reputation for quality and timely advice, providing planning advice to our clients on their power systems operation and development
  • Lead the industry with the deployment of innovative projects in the energy storage and inverters-based generation markets in an increasingly challenging technical environment

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.

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 need to have in order to ‘bring ideas to life’.

What can you bring to the team?

Firstly, you will share our genuine passion for re-imagining engineering and be someone that actively pursues continuous learning to help shape the future. You will also be degree qualified and have at least 10-15 years’ post-graduation experience in a power industry role as a consultant or power project developer/owner/operator.

A strong understanding of electrical engineering and of power systems theory will be required for this role. Years of experience with power system modelling software such as PSSE, PSCAD and DIgSILENT PowerFactory are preferred and will support your success in this role. Site and practical experience with power systems behaviour are also a plus for this role and experience with protection and primary systems design will be highly valued.

A sound knowledge of the National Electricity Rules and the grid connection process across the NEM would be required.

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?
