Babcock is presently delivering an exciting and diverse contract to support the Qantas Group's fleet of Ground Support Equipment (GSE), which comprises more than 10,000 assets spread across 60 locations across Australia including Qantas' domestic, regional, freight, catering and engineering operations, as well as Jetstar. Working with Qantas as its trusted asset management partner, Babcock is delivering a customised and innovative asset management solution to drive reliability and efficiency improvements of equipment and provide significant long term capability and cost benefits.

To support this partnership with an iconic Australian company, Babcock is now seeking to appoint a suitably qualified Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Engineer.

About the role:

The Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Engineer is responsible for developing asset maintenance strategies and compiling the asset management and maintenance planning and scheduling data within our computerised maintenance management systems to ensure the information that we produce and publish is accurate and compliant.
