About the program

This program is a unique opportunity for a self-starting engineer to join our professionals' program in the planning and scheduling space for rapid development as a highly skilled practitioner in this field.

Planning and scheduling is a crucial function at RPV, and robust programs that have the project team's buy-in are fundamental for the successful delivery of all RPV projects. 

Planning and scheduling extends well beyond the ability to develop and update programs. Successful Planners are expert communicators and facilitators, have strong project management skills and seek to develop a detailed and comprehensive overview of the status of projects. For these reasons they often adopt the role of ‘trusted advisor' to Senior Management.

Over a 2-year period involving in depth training within carefully structured learning modules you will be introduced to best practice planning and scheduling methods and techniques from a high performing team of Senior Planners within RPV, many with more than 15 to 20 years' industry experience.

Embedded within RPV's project delivery teams and working closely with RPV's Planners you will be able to apply existing and developing skills and techniques into practice as you assist with the development, management and reporting of programs and strategic plans for RPV's portfolio of major infrastructure projects.

As well as receiving advanced training for Primavera P6 and other software applications the program will also enable you to develop your professional communication and collaboration, reporting, negotiation and project management skills.

About you

You will be a highly focused and driven person who is passionate about contributing to the delivery of public infrastructure, working within a high-performing project team to drive exceptional outcomes. You will be a qualified Engineer or similar discipline with experience working within large projects. You will enjoy a fast paced, performance focused workplace where you will have the opportunity to work autonomously and develop your career.

If you are looking to step up in your career, this might be just the right opportunity for you!
