Are you looking to get away from the city COVID lockdowns?  Are you looking for a relaxed lifestyle, whilst still growing your skills and career experience working on a wide variety of projects?  Are you looking for an employer that recognises your efforts as an individual – not just a number?

Brandon and Associates are a medium sized engineering firm, specialising in civil and structural design and project management. Due to continued growth, we are seeking a Senior Civil Designer with 5-10 years relevant industry experience to be based in our Toowoomba office.

This role is integral to the success of our civil design team, as you will be responsible for the design and presentation of quality civil plans.

To be considered for this role, you are expected to have demonstrated experience in most, if not all, of the following:

  • Earthworks and siteworks
  • Intersections, Carparks, hardstands, detention basins, cycleways

Key criteria for the role will also include:

  • Proficient in computer aided design and drafting programs (e.g. AutoCAD, 12D, Civil 3D, AutoTurn and PC Drain)
  • Strong communication (written and verbal) skills
  • Associate Degree in Civil Engineering or relevant equivalent industry experience

You will also need to demonstrate sound knowledge in

  • Main Roads and Austroads design standards
  • QUDM & AR&R
  • Pavement and surfacing design
  • Erosion and sediment control practices
  • Development application processes

Whilst this position is based in our Toowoomba office, some travel will be required from time to time to job sites and to our other offices (pool vehicle supplied), so a current unrestricted Driver’s Licence is essential.

Salary is negotiable based on qualifications, relevant experience, potential, and attitude.

In addition to a competitive salary, when working for us you will also benefit from:

  • Flexible working hours
  • A professional and relaxed working environment
  • Free on-site parking
  • Access to the latest software
  • Working on a wide variety of interesting and challenging projects
  • Ongoing training, development and mentoring
  • A true work-life balance environment

Applications are open to all Australian and New Zealand Citizens and permanent residents of Australia with a minimum of 5 years local experience.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Phil Lattimore on (07) 4636 4100 or email

As the role is available for immediate start, shortlisting and interviews will commence upon receipt of applications,

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.


Based in Toowoomba, this role provides an ideal opportunity to escape the long commutes and the hustle & bustle of big city life. With affordable quality housing, the average commute to work is only 15 minutes. The local community is an ideal place to live as you enjoy the benefits of a true work-life balance environment. Toowoomba’s reputation as the “Garden City” speaks for itself with parklands, walking trails, and great coffee and breakfasts from a large selection of cafes.

As the second largest inland city in Australia (second to Canberra), you still have access to all mod-cons of city life with a large choice quality private and state education facilities, a university, three major hospitals, a major Airport with direct flights Townsville, Sydney and Melbourne (well usually-unless COVID stops us) and a large choice of sporting, recreational, and cultural facilities.  And if you still have the need to hit the big city, Brisbane is only 1.5 hours away. Or you can drive to the Gold or Sunshine Coasts in only 2 hours for a weekend getaway.
