We are currently looking for a Senior Draftsperson (6 years+ experience) to join our Structural team.
You’ll ideally have experience in drafting domestic structures, with a working and demonstrated knowledge of timber framing and connections, as well as strong detailing skills with concrete and reinforcement. Full proficiency with AutoCAD is essential; experience with Revit is desirable, but not critical. You’ll have the experience and the skillset to take a set of architectural drawings and to prepare working engineering overlays and framing layouts, without merely tracing or replicating engineers’ hand sketches.
You’ll be joining a close-knit team of draftees and engineers that strive for excellence with documentation. The accurate representation of details and connections forms a pivotal part of Partridge’s service and deliverables to our Clients, and the successful candidate will demonstrate a full understanding of framing, connections, and structural detailing. 90% of Partridge’s projects are documented using AutoCAD; Revit is used for only a handful of our jobs. The role will require you to have direct liaison and contact with architects and clients to establish framing layouts and to co-ordinate and develop details The opportunity to mentor and train junior draftees and apprentices is available for candidates with appropriate experience and teaching skills.

We are currently looking for a Senior Engineer (8 years+) to join our Structural team.
You’ll have achieved strong academic results at uni, and you’ve hopefully already attained your CPEng status, or you’ve almost completed the process and your submission.
You’ll be experienced and proficient in designing complex (not necessarily big!) structures in concrete, steel, timber and masonry, and you’ll have demonstrated experience in carrying out investigative inspections and writing reports. Ideally, you might already have started to work on preparing fee proposals for your projects and you’ll be comfortable with client liaison and attending consultants’ meeting by yourself. Upon joining Partridge, you’ll be mentored and developed towards running projects autonomously and handling projects from start to finish. You’ll ideally have obtained your degree at an Australian university and you’ve spent the last 3-6 years working for similarly-minded consulting firms in Sydney.
The position requires a confident engineer with “first principles” design knowledge; someone with strong writing and communication skills; good team-player skills to work collaboratively at the coal face with both architects and builders; and a burning desire to deliver excellence on every job. You’ll undertake and oversee the designs and documentation on your projects, working with our drafting team, and delivering the drawings to the client on time. The position has scope for growth and development, with every opportunity for the right candidate to progress through the company to Associate and beyond.
Working with us:
If you believe near enough is good enough, then this is not the role for you. If you design your structures by simply reading off a chart or a table, then this is not the role for you. First principles engineering is a must, as is the ability to explore more than just the first or easiest solution. Partridge believes in delivering a full and excellent service to our clients, built on trust and long-term relationships. A role with Partridge requires that we, as engineers, go the extra mile in providing the best solution, the best guidance, the best instruction, the best advice, the best documentation, the best drawings, the best reports, and – above all else – the best service to architects, builders, clients, home-owners, project managers, schools, commercial operators, and government departments.
We’re a fun office with a great culture, and Partridge is a business where you can start your career as a work experience student and finish as a Director! To submit your application, please use the below form and upload both your letter and your CV.
