Starting as a graduate engineer with a mid-tier consultancy based in Sydney, Jim developed skills in structural design, remedial investigation / reporting and rope access inspections on a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial projects. Following this role, Jim accepted a role as a design engineer in the Local Government sector where he developed skills in project management, civil design and traffic engineering whilst working on a variety of municipal projects.
