As Australia’s sole manufacturer and leading supplier of world class polyethylene and polymers, we have an unrivaled reputation for excellence and innovation in the chemical sector.

Qenos is growing beyond its manufacturing footprint, entering new markets with new products and services.

About the Opportunity

Qenos is now seeking a Senior Electrical and Instrumentation Engineer to join our team in Botany, NSW. 

Your primary responsibility will be to lead, maintain and develop the capability of the Qenos Olefines Plant, as well as the Port Botany Plant, from an electrical and instrumentation systems/engineering perspective. You will be tasked with ensuring this occurs in accordance with statutory and company standards such that the plant operates safely, reliably and efficiently, now and in the long term.

Based at the Botany Qenos Olefines plant, key responsibilities of this role include:

  • Providing engineering expertise to the Olefines and Port Botany plant with particular support to the E/I Reliability groups around ethylene technology and engineering know-how;
  • Maintaining the process control, electrical utility and protective systems capabilities;
  • Representing Olefines as an Engineering Project Manager and on company Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering committees;
  • Ensuring compliance with, and improvement in, safety, health and environmental performance;
  • Maintaining, developing and implementing Qenos Electrical, Instrumentation, SH&E, Engineering standards, Engineering design, procedures and systems across Olefines and the Port Botany plants;
  • Leading plant personnel in developing Electrical and Instrumentation workscopes for planned shutdowns;
  • Participating in Risk Assessment Studies as an E/I specialist for Olefines; and
  • Formulating medium to long term strategies and training requirements for E&I maintenance and reliability, to meet legislative requirements.

Please Note: This is a standard full-time, Monday to Friday position. However, as the plants operate 24/7 there will be occasional instances of being called upon outside of normal working hours.

About You

The successful candidate will possess well-rounded Electrical and Instrumentation experience in a leading plant operations role, within a petrochemical or related environment. A Bachelor of Electrical Engineering Degree is required, as is experience in HAZOP, Inherent Safety Design, and Incident Investigation: root-cause analysis. As the Qenos plants operate as Major Hazard Facilities, there is a heavy emphasis on hazardous area certified electrical equipment in gas environments. A working knowledge of explosion protection techniques for electrical equipment will be highly regarded.

In addition to the above, the successful candidate will possess the following:

  • Initiative and a results-first mentality to drive continuous improvement across a number of different areas; 
  • A passion for taking a hands on approach with plant operations;
  • High-level communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to credibly engage with stakeholders of all levels (from floor staff to senior management);
  • A collaborative approach to your work, with a team-player mindset;
  • A can-do attitude, a deep sense of ownership and an unflinching desire to see tasks and projects through to completion;
  • A comprehensive understanding of, and commitment to, safety; and
  • Proficiency in MS Office applications (particularly Excel).

About the Benefits

This is a rare opportunity to join a vibrant company with a structured and proven focus on achieving outstanding safety and environmental results. 

If you're looking for a position that will allow you to utilise your existing capabilities and experience, look no further - you will work on a wide variety of equipment and enjoy the unique challenges that come from such a diverse role. Not to mention, you'll be collaborating with a team of long-term, highly competent employees who are experts in their fields. It's no wonder Qenos has such a low rate of turn over!

In return for your hard work and dedication, you will receive a competitive salary package together with attractive working conditions. Additionally, you'll have access to onsite parking and a detailed induction, onboarding, and development program.

If you are looking for a flexible and rewarding environment where diversity is valued and encouraged, please apply today!
