We are Melbourne's largest roofing construction company and our leadership team is very scientifically minded, with background in physics (PHD, Unimelb) and mechanical engineering (Unimelb). Our company is seeking up to 4 intelligent and highly capable graduate engineers to join our management team for the second 2021 intake.

Two positions will begin ASAP before the end of the year and two more will begin at the start of 2021. We will most likely draw the candidates from the same pool.

Due to high demand, applications can only be lodged online, please do not try and contact us because it'll just be spam. If selected you will need:

- Construction Induction Card (white card)
- Working at Heights
- Driver's licence (a suitable work car will be provided)

One of the two selected candidates must live on the western side of Melbourne in order to service the western projects. So anyone living in the west is encouraged to apply.

Our company already has 9 engineers, 8 of which were recruited earlier in 2020. We understand how to train junior engineers and will teach you the skills that your university failed to teach you as engineers.


This is a site supervisor/engineering role, where you will utilise your engineering and leadership skills to manage tradesmen completing roofing construction on-site. You will be leading a team of 1-4 tradesmen from roof plumbing, roof tiling and general construction backgrounds. You will be required to design work flow, manage logistics and meet project deadlines. You will be required to be on the tools with the tradesmen, as required, to fully understand the processes, critically analyse them, and teach these skills to new members of the workforce.

Future Opportunities:

After achieving competency in this role, you will have an opportunity to progress to become Engineer lead, where you will be overseeing junior engineers stepping into these roles.


·        Intelligence and active problem-solving skills.

·        Excellent verbal and written communication.

·        Proactive and positive attitude

·        Leadership and management abilities

·        Relevant engineering degree (University of Melbourne preferred)


As a junior engineer, you will oversee experienced tradesmen and must not be afraid step up and lead. All the senior management of Obsidian Roofing are members of the Australian Army (past and present), you will receive training on leading a team.

Much of the learning will be on the job and the leadership team will provide guidance and technical support for you to achieve the job objectives.

The application form will include these questions:
  • Which of the following statements best describes your right to work in Australia?
  • Have you completed a qualification in engineering?
  • Do you have a current Australian driver's licence?
