Mechanical Design Draftspersons

Contribute to the Design of World-Leading Technology

Multiple Roles - Attractive Remuneration & Conditions

Global Industry Leader & Lifestyle Location


This is an exciting opportunity to work with a global industry leader and play a role in the continued development of its world-leading technology, while enjoying the lifestyle benefits that only South East Queensland can offer.


Established for thirty-seven years our client, Russell Mineral Equipment (RME), is the acknowledged world leader in grinding Mill Relining Systems. 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. Via a network of wholly-owned international subsidiaries, the organisation supports customers in more than 65 countries.


Integral to the ongoing development of the organisation's technology suite, the opportunity now exists for a number of experienced Mechanical Design Draftspersons to join the team and be responsible for the creation of detailed drawings suitable for the production of high-quality mining-related equipment.


Reporting to the Engineering Team Leader, and working closely with other members of the Engineering Department, in one of these roles you will (under supervision) carry out preliminary layout and design of various aspects of RME equipment and produce any detailed drawings required to progress any given part or assembly from 3D models to completed drawings, within defined time periods. In doing so, you may also be required to assist in the supervision, training and mentoring of Junior Draftspersons.


Experience in a quality design engineering (ideally manufacturing) environment and demonstrated proficiency with a 3D modelling application (preferably SolidWorks) is required. Experience with detailed drafting of fabrication drawings, a basic knowledge of materials science and hydraulic principles and design, and/or trade experience in a related industry would be a distinct advantage.


A qualification in Mechanical Engineering or other related discipline will be well regarded and degree graduates are encouraged to apply.


Applicants must currently reside, and be permitted to work permanently, in Australia and while all relevant applications are appreciated, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.


Our client is an equal opportunity employer.


Situated on the edge of the picturesque Great Dividing Range, less than 1.5 hours west of Brisbane and only two hours from both the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, and with regular flights direct to Sydney and Melbourne, the 'garden city' of Toowoomba is one of South East Queensland’s best kept secrets. This thriving regional community, Australia’s largest inland provincial city with 160,000 residents, offers affordable housing, world-class health, education, recreation and cultural facilities.
