Established in 1980, Zimmerman Consulting Engineers has been providing structural consulting services to architects, builders and private clients. During this time, we have completed 1000's of projects all over Sydney and greater NSW, ranging from small renovations to large multi-storey residences.

In recent years, we have become known for our work in high-end residential projects. We pride ourselves in finding elegant solutions to complex architectural designs. We have always been a small firm with a passion for solution-driven engineering and we are now looking to expand our team by taking on a graduate engineer.

About the role:


We are currently seeking a Graduate Structural Engineer to join our team. This is an ideal opportunity for a recent graduate or someone with 1 – 2 years experience. The successful applicant will become a part of a core team of structural engineers, and will receive on the job training directly from our senior engineers.

  • Ensure projects are designed with constructability and cost efficiency in mind.


This is a unique opportunity to join a hard working, small team of highly experienced engineers. You will gain the benefit of hands-on training, with direct supervision and guidance from the principle engineer, providing you with an educational benefit that may not be available within larger firms.
