Engineering at TransGrid is divided into three core specialties:
Planning, Design and Projects.
No matter which area you join, you can
look forward to getting your hands on the latest technology, quality
equipment and large-scale projects, while making a significant impact on
one of the best high voltage networks in the world.
If you’re an experienced Electrical or Civil Engineer, you could
apply your talent to one of the following core engineering functions.
Planning engineers oversee network performance, system planning and
operations planning. They spend their days
applying creativity and innovation to plan for the future requirements
and possibilities of our network. They enjoy the challenge of generating
and testing new ideas and solutions that continually strengthen and
transform our network, progressing its performance and capabilities to
the next level.
Design engineers are critical to the control and flow of electricity
across our network. Specialising in the design of substations, lines
and/or communications, their projects can include anything from
designing new substation equipment using the latest technologies, to
building signal-based communication systems that can detect and stop
faults between substations within seconds of them occurring. Every
project is different; each needs to be designed with different types of
terrain, new technologies and environmental impacts in mind. Design
engineers are often supported to develop diverse career paths that could
step into planning and projects.
Our talented Projects teams oversee the end-to-end management of
large scale projects – from development and construction, through to
delivery. Our engineers and infrastructure professionals are exposed to a
diverse portfolio of interesting regulated and unregulated jobs, from
building new substations to connecting gold mines and wind farms to our
network. They receive ongoing opportunities to travel throughout the
state and to liaise with a diverse mix of stakeholders, such as our
Operations teams, private customers, and community and environmental
