Hendry is looking to expand our national Safety Measures team, and we need someone to take the reins as the primary source of expertise when it comes to knowledge of technical regulations and standards.

Stepping into this role, the Technical Manager will be based in our Melbourne office, presiding over team capability, client & project management and the application of technical regulations.

Whilst your main focus will be on overseeing the technical quality of team output and client deliverables, from time to time you will be required to perform on-the-ground inspection & consulting services.

In terms of day-to-day responsibilities, you’ll find yourself working closely with the National Operations Manager to strengthen key accounts and ensure large portfolio projects are delivered without a hitch.

Where client projects are concerned, the right candidate for this role is someone who treats the job like a well-oiled car, ensuring all the parts keep moving, are technically up to scratch, and that the client doesn’t feel any bumps in the road.
