Mechanical Engineers - Asset Support

Support World-Leading Technology

Attractive Remuneration & Conditions

Global Industry Leader & Lifestyle Location


This is an exciting opportunity to work with a global industry leader and play a key role in the continued development of its world-leading technology, while enjoying the lifestyle benefits that only South East Queensland can offer. You will also be working within a culture that ensures competitive advantage through the delivery of unequalled value to customers and employees alike.


Established for thirty-seven years and admitted into the Australian Export Awards Hall of Fame our Toowoomba-based 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 organisation's core business, the opportunity now exists for a Mechanical Engineer to work closely with RME’s Regional Service Centres to quote, design and deliver equipment updates, and to provide support for major machine overhauls and RME’s in-field Technicians.


Reporting to an Asset Support Engineering Team Leader, and working closely with other members of the Engineering Team and broader RME cohort, in this role you will produce documentation that supports the sustainment and upgrade of RME’s in-service equipment. Such documentation may include commercial offers, finite element analysis (FEA) reports, detailed calculation sheets and engineering reports. You will also design and produce detailed drawings required to progress any given part or assembly from concept to ready for manufacture. Often the first point of contact, you will also be required to respond urgently to situations that affect RME’s Customers’ maintenance shutdowns. Working with legacy designs and data, you must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, often with limited information, to deliver quality outcomes for Customers’ assets.


A degree qualification in Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering and experience in a professional engineering environment (ideally manufacturing related), demonstrated proficiency with a 3D modelling application (preferably SolidWorks) and basic knowledge of material sciences is required.


Sound knowledge of hydraulic principles and design, demonstrated experience with creating price estimates and quotes for the supply of mechanical equipment/parts and/or engineering services, and experience with ERP (ideally MS Dynamics/365) and PLM (ideally PTC Windchill) software would be a distinct advantage; as will progress towards, or interest in attaining, CPEng/RPEQ accreditation.


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.
