As an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), RME’s core competencies include quality design and manufacture as well as global distribution, after-sales service and mill relining and consulting services.

-    ensuring technical control and compliance of Engineering activities;

-    maintaining alignment between capacity and demand to ensure on-time delivery of profitable solutions; &

Your ability to effectively lead and develop a multi-disciplinary technical cohort, while maintaining the day-to-day efficiency and effectiveness of the Asset Support Engineering function, coupled with your demonstrated interpersonal, analytical and organisational skills, strong relationship management skills and customer service ethic, commercial acumen and pragmatic approach, will underpin your success in this rewarding role.


Significant experience in the leadership and management of technical and/or engineering personnel is essential. Relevant tertiary qualifications (e.g. Engineering, Business, Project Management), experience managing a multi-disciplinary team, working in a structured Engineering Management System environment and with Product Lifecycle Management software will be a distinct advantage.
