Apply now: an exciting role within this leading Australian organisation

The government has made it clear that investment in major infrastructure projects is the centrepiece of its plan for Australia’s economic recovery. In fact, by the end of the 2019-2020 financial year, the government had invested more than $24 billion into infrastructure across key portfolios.

As a result, 2021 has started strong for the asset and facility management sector. We’ve seen a return of confidence and work packages are releasing for tender and/or proposals opportunities. This is good news for the industry, which is returning to the exciting, fast-paced environment it was pre-2020.

To highlight how this impacts Australian businesses and employment opportunities, we look at Australia’s award-winning facility and asset management company, Macutex. Here, we learn more about the company’s pivotal role in the built environment and an exciting new career opportunity available with this notable company.

Leading the industry for 15 years

Macutex was established in 2006 to provide portfolio-wide and facility asset assessment and data collection programs to the public and private sector. The company is unique in this way, as it focuses on data collection as its core business, unlike other organisations that focus primarily on engineering evaluation or specialist technical advisory.

Since its inception, Macutex has worked with over 40 local governments across Australia, State governments and Clients in the private sector. They have assessed and reported on over 75,000 buildings, helping more than 120 clients better manage their building assets.

Senior Manager of Programs at Macutex, Louise Martin, says this experience and continuous engagement in the industry has led to a strong appreciation and understanding of the key challenges faced by those responsible for managing the performance of large facility asset portfolios.

“Macutex works with each client as a partner to ensure the delivery process is smooth and achieves their specific desired outcomes,” she says. “We understand that no one size fits all, and tailor our project delivery models to suit our clients’ requirements.”  

As a supplier,Bayside Personnel has been lucky to work in partnership with Macutex since the infancy of the business. This partnership has ensured Macutex has had skilled employees ready for projects, while also providing those within the employment market the opportunity to work within a leading organisation and utilise their skills in an area they may not have yet been exposed to.

An exciting opportunity: career growth, stability and support

Given the return of confidence in the building and facility industry and in influx of awarded contracts, Macutex is expanding and offering an exciting role for a Manager – Project Delivery to join their team.

Given there is scope for growth and career development, roles at Macutex are not predetermined. Therefore, this this an ideal position for an individual who has previous experience working within the built environment and is looking to step into a project management role, or for an individual with project management experience who is eager to learn about the built environment.

Indeed, Louise began working for Macutex as a Project Administrator.

“Through learning, engagement and curiosity, I have been able to grow and develop into the Head of Programs at Macutex. It has been incredibly rewarding to grow in my career, the kind of growth I never thought would be possible while remaining within the organisation.”

Presenting its employees with career pathways and development opportunities is something Macutex is known for. Individuals are encouraged to continually expand their skills and draw on the professional development budgets that are allocated to them. Such opportunities also result in greater retention, meaning teams grow together and strengthen their skills as a whole.

“As we are a medium-sized business, there is true team cohesiveness and a team mentality,” says Louise. “Irrespective of job roles or titles, it’s all hands on deck to ensure projects are delivered to the highest quality for our clients, and as a result, this makes coming to work and seeing colleagues a joy rather than an obligation.”

One of the benefits Louise has enjoyed so much while working for Macutex has been the opportunity to travel around Australia, exploring some of the most beautiful coastlines the country has to offer.

“As well as the incredible career-advancing opportunities, arguably one of the best benefits for me has been the opportunity to travel,” she says. “I have been fortunate enough to travel to Queensland more times than I can count, Port Macquarie in NSW, Cape Barren Island in Tasmania, and more through my project work at Macutex. Our assessors have travelled via plane, helicopter and boat – no sites are out of reach!”

In fact, it seems like nothing is out of reach for those working within this quickly growing, exciting workplace. If you are interested in applying for Macutex’s Manager – Project Delivery position in their Melbourne office or would like more information about the role, please contact;
