The Company 

Northrop Consulting Engineers is an employee owned, multidiscipline consultancy that has been established for 40 years. We have an open management structure and employ over 300 staff across eight offices in NSW, ACT, QLD, and VIC. 

We are essentially a people business that grows by creating opportunities for our people to help build the business and their career. When you join Northrop, you join a company that will support you to excel both professionally and personally. 

The Role 

Due to continued, managed growth, our busy Sydney Civil Section requires experienced Civil Drafters with urban / land development experience to join our team, based in our CBD office.

  • Open-minded and approachable?
  • Passionate about the Civil Engineering industry? 

You will have the opportunity to contribute to the successful delivery of wide-ranging, challenging projects within an environment that will support your career growth and development.

This position will also offer you the opportunity to play the role of mentor to less experienced colleagues and assist with workload allocation for the drafting team.

The Candidate 

Our business and culture is unique, and is not for everyone. We are looking for people who want to take control of their career, are able to work with agility, and successfully operate in a highly autonomous environment. 

As the successful candidate you will possess:
