We’re on the hunt for a Senior Engineer who is passionate and thrives on constantly interesting work … to help design and inspect structures.

Are you the Maths in the Middle? Do you like to help create, expand, upgrade and remediate structures of all types?

Are you looking to consolidate all your experience into an excellent career move with long term prospects?

Why work at MPC?

“We are a team of 17 that like what we do. We know we are the Maths in the Middle… the piece between aesthetic design and practical construction that does the maths … on the loads, the forces, the transfers… to make sure each element and the structure as a whole WORKS!

From stunning upgrades of residential alterations and additions to many of the region’s schools with their COLA’s and amazing Multi Purpose Sports Facilities and hospitals, aged care centres and medical centres.

For high end homes for expansive water or mountain views and open plan living in harsh environmental conditions also prone to earthquakes or even a bit of mine subsidence!  As well as medium density mixed use and multi-rise residential developments in Newcastle’s growth and expansion.

There are also the many recreational facilities and structural assessments for local Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens Councils, School Infrastructure NSW, Catholic Schools Office, St Philips Christian Colleges or the Newcastle Jockey Club.

They rely on us and we are trustable. We deliver safe, strong, stable structures that are practical and last.

So – yes – you will have a terrific variety of work.

You will also be working for a company that has a 88% repeat/referral rate.  That means that 80% of our projects each year come from repeat clients and 8% come from referrals – we are reliable, we are trustable, we are quality.

We work hard for this and we are proud of this.

Who are MPC?

“We are a team of 17 who like to perform well. You will need to take great pride in your work to deliver high quality engineering design.

You will also believe in a service attitude- to one another and our clients.

Our directors are our project managers – so our clients have an owner taking responsibility and our team get to work with excellent seniors who guide and teach them accountability and strive for excellence thus providing for an inspiring, stimulating and rewarding work environment.
