JOB DESCRIPTION

  • Join ARRB - Your National Transport Research Organisation
  • Work within our innovative and forward-thinking team; create the future
  • Make ARRB your next career move and become a respected expert in your field!

About Us
We’ve been doing it since 1960! The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is the source of independent expert transport knowledge, with 60 years of experience focused on delivering a connected and adaptable future for Australia and New Zealand. In that time, we have developed a track record of using applied research, practical experience, and a deep understanding of global best practice to write the rule books for many aspects of Australasian transportation.
 
 In this way we serve both the community and Australian and New Zealand state road agencies, to deliver the transportation systems we need. We are a not-for-profit organisation, which ensures that we focus on benefiting the community and common-good outcomes of sustainability, resilience, public safety, and value for money for taxpayer dollars.
 
Why join ARRB:
ARRB is a dynamic and vibrant organisation providing exciting opportunities for people to do great things, to tackle the big infrastructure questions, and to see these solutions being practically applied. Our teams are made up of world-leading roads, transport and infrastructure professionals who analyse and interpret global research and apply it to the Australian and New Zealand context.
 
If our values of Collaboration, Transformation, Integrity and Energy & Passion strike a chord with you, then join us and make you mark! This role offers passionate, proactive, talented and energetic professionals the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the sustainability of Australia’s future mobility system!
 
Our Port Melbourne facility is a state-of-the-art working campus encompassing basketball courts, table tennis and pool tables, café, end of trip facilities, and hosts the largest pavement materials laboratory within the southern hemisphere! 
 
About the role and you:
 
ARRB is seeking a Mid to Senior level engineer with knowledge of sustainability principles, of sustainability management, of using recycled materials in road construction/ transport infrastructure and of waste management to join our Melbourne based team. What other skills sets have you to set you apart? Tell us your story – amaze us!
 
You are keen to be a part of ARRB’s future and keen to become a recognised expert by contributing to the delivery of local, State and National projects and initiatives and thereby setting the standard for our transportation system.
 
In our dynamic national team, you will find kindred spirits who are instrumental in delivering outcomes-focussed transport solutions which offer greater sustainability, greater safety and greater value for money than those we currently have.
 
Our vacancies:
 
Our ideal Transport Sustainability Practitioner/ Engineer candidate:

  • has 7+ years relevant road infrastructure experience with a good understanding of infrastructure sustainability, resilience and materials performance specifications and standards
  • has a Bachelors’ or higher qualification in Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering or related engineering and science areas
  • is passionate in developing and contributing to projects related to sustainable and recycled pavement materials, waste management and environment management
  • has exceptional analytical skills and problem-solving capabilities, including designing laboratory studies and field trials and interpreting their results accurately and concisely
  • has a good understanding of government sustainability polices, environmental regulations and technical, and safety risks associated with the use of recycled materials.
  • has a strong track record of leading the delivery of projects to agreed scope, budget, quality and timetable requirements
  • has highly developed interpersonal skills that allow constructive conversations with a range of public and private sector stakeholders, clients, partners, and colleagues.
  • has a growing track record of writing compelling, successful proposals and business cases and maintaining ongoing relationships with those customers


Have an edge with:

  • skills or qualification we haven’t mentioned but which has helped you be successful to date


What we offer:
An exciting, dynamic and collaborative workplace with challenging roles, where your skills, knowledge and experience will be recognised and respected, including:

  • opportunities to contribute to high-profile and interesting projects, on a very broad range of topics and which make a lasting difference to the community
  • opportunities to work collaboratively with - and learn from - a network of global experts and colleagues around the country, of whom just under 40% are women (and growing)
  • a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on public good and which re-invests operating surpluses into our people, our equipment, and our facilities
  • healthy work-life balance, with flexible arrangements for accruing time off, shifted work hours, access to paid parental leave
  • strong support for career development and further study, including an explicit step-by-step guide for progressing in the organisation and a range of professional development options
  • a competitive salary, above-CPI annual increases & staff benefits, including options for salary packaging – boosted by our not-for-profit status - to make your salary dollar go even further
  • additional company-funded leave days over end-of-year holiday period, to ensure that you have a good break to recharge mentally and connect with family at this important time
  • a well-established social club, with regular socialising events, competitions, cook/bake-offs and tournaments
  • free on-site parking, including a number of free electric vehicle chargers for those who have made the shift away from the internal combustion engine
  • end-of-trip facilities for those staff who have gone a step further and cycle, run or walk to work - as many of our Port Melbourne staff do
