Joined on the promise of quick promotion? Maybe you were told there would be an opportunity for Directorship within a few years whilst you grow the structural division. But the company has decided to change direction and employ someone above you, eliminating the career progression you joined for.
As the division is growing, it’s likely that the projects they’re getting in are on the smaller side. The projects aren’t exciting. The draw card was the progression.
- Director actively implementing his succession plan, there is so much room to grow in your standing.
- He’s not rushing out the door so no need for additional hire above you to speed up his exit
- Don’t like to cap potential and are happy to sit down and discuss career aspirations from the outset to make it clear which direction you want to take and put the right measures in place to get you there.
Expectation and Reward
- Bonuses and ownership based on realistic and achievable KPI’s, no expectation to develop new business in your first year.
- Instead you will focus on taking over existing relationships and networks from the Director who is scaling back.
- Consultancy with an already established employee share scheme
- Continuing to expand their multidisciplinary offering and building on industry reputation to do so.
- Make a point of being fairly selective in the Engineers they employ.
- Don’t like their quality to be dragged down, so the Engineers you have to work with will be the best of the best in the market.
- Variety of major development projects already on the books.
- They don’t rely on just the average builds of medium apartment buildings kicking around at the moment.
10+ years of Structural experience within New Zealand is expected, along with CPEng qualification.
