About us

At LXRP, we're not just removing level crossings, we are removing barriers and creating legacies for our communities for years to come. Inclusion is a priority for us, and we are committed to creating an employee community that reflects those in which we work.

  • We value our role as leaders to actively increase female representation in the transport sector through practical support, professional development and exposure to career opportunities.
  • We are proud leaders and participants of internship programs that provide opportunities to people who identify as LGBTIQ, people living with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, refugees or asylum seekers or people from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • We offer and encourage flexible work practices and purchased leave arrangements for all our employees to support wellbeing, family or carer commitments or other personal circumstances.
  • We place great importance on growth, empowering our people to enhance their knowledge, capability and experience through continual learning, formal training and lessons learned.
  • Health, safety and wellbeing are at the heart of what we do. We focus on the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of our people to create a safe and healthy workplace for everyone, every day, everywhere.

About the role

As part of a dynamic and results-driven team you will provide expertise and leadership around the planning and environmental issues impacting the planning and delivery of the program.  On a day to day basis you will be responsible for providing authoritative advice on a range of planning and environmental issues whilst working closely and building strong relationships with a range of government departments and industry stakeholders.

About you
