We are looking for a part-time draftsman to work within our company, with the wage of $6 Australian dollars per hour to be paid monthly.
We are looking ideally for staff from the Philippines, as we already have staff based there, but will still consider staff from other counties.
You must be proficient with AutoCAD, and have a good understanding of English (preferably Australian or UK English rather than US English).
The role will involve:
- drawing up plans of underground cables and pipes
- converting hand-drawn plans to CAD plans
- taking offset from older plans that were created in imperial and drawing them up in AutoCAD showing metric measurements
- combining several plans into one CAD plan
- splitting combined plans into separate layered plans
- overlaying photos and aerial images onto plans
- saving plans as PDF files so they can be viewed on iPads
You will also be required to complete some administrative duties that are in line with the plans you create. And you may even be required to help out with other roles from time to time—so you will need to be flexible and easy-going.
You must possess extreme attention to detail. I am a perfectionist and get very annoyed when little things on the plans have not been drawn up correctly or are untidy. I will not accept “close enough is good enough”. I am therefore looking for someone who takes pride in their work. I also expect that you will make suggestions along the way about how we can improve the plans you create and the systems and procedures we have in place.
There is an opportunity to make the role flexible with the hours worked, if required. However you MUST be available to work during Australian business hours as you will need to be able to talk with our staff throughout the day to discuss different aspects of the work you will be doing and they are only available during Australian busienss hours.
To apply for this position you will need complete an online assessment: this will take 30-45 minutes, so make sure you have enough time available when completing it. While on the testing website, please ALSO submit a covering letter and a copy of your resume/CV if you do not submit both to the testing platform then your application will be rejected.
NOTE - we will not be reading the details you leave on Upwork, so do not worry about adding any details onto here, just write everything you want to say about yourself within your cover letter as that will be the first thing we read about you
