Electrical Engineers - HV Power Systems & Networks


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? 

Our Energy team is going from strength to strength and as such we are searching for a range of professionals who are experienced in, or are motivated to develop expertise in planning, designing, operating and maintaining high voltage (HV) transmission and distribution networks. 

You will apply this expertise in collaboration with network owners and investors to build the HV power systems of the future – where the past model of centralised generation and one way power flow is replaced by interconnected systems operated dynamically to integrate large renewable generators and distributed energy resources.  You will be instrumental in delivering these networks in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. 

In Aurecon’s Energy team, we believe it’s the technical expertise and the depth of knowledge of our people that really sets us apart - our clients come to us to deliver challenging projects at the forefront of the energy transition. 

Here are the key offerings where we are looking for motivated people to help us grow and ‘bring ideas to life’ –  

  • Development of strategic advice and plans backed by experience with network planning, enabling investment in the expansion of Australia’s power transmission and distribution networks 
  • Power system studies supporting the planning, design and connection of new generation and loads to transmission and distribution networks, as well as privately owned networks and microgrids  
  • Specification and design of the fundamental components of HV power systems – substations and lines 
  • Design and commissioning of HV protection and control systems 
  • Telecommunications design specific to HV networks 
  • Development of policies and systems for asset management and maintenance of HV systems 

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, such as Transport, Resources, Health, Defence and Aviation. 

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 need a relevant technical qualification and chartered status would be preferable. ? 

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. 

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?
