Our client is a global green energy company that is committed to producing zero-emission energy from renewable resources. They now have an urgent need for a Cost Controller to join their Brisbane operations for the next three months with a view to extend.

They need the successful person to join them as soon as possible to assist them with budget planning, cost control and forward planning reporting. It is highly advantageous if you have worked on project costing before as the environment of this pioneering organisation can be fluid and ever-changing.

In this role you will provide financial services including scheduling, budget planning, cost control, value reporting and document management to projects.

Key responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Provide expertise to project leads and other team members across budget and cost planning services
  • Produce cost reports and highlight variance analysis
  • Prepare value reporting to facilitating well-informed decisions and provide proof of benefits
  • Develop reliable project expenditure estimates in conjunction with project leads



You will be a self-motivated and driven team player with a strong value system. You will have the right technical skills and the interpersonal skills to create strong relationships. Most importantly, you will have an excellent attitude.

The experience and skillset best suited to this position includes:

  • Experience in a cost control role, ideally in an Energy or Oil and Gas environment
  • Ability to execute tasks independently with minimal guidance
  • Great organisational skills to handle multiple tasks and deliver under tight deadlines
  • Sound knowledge of cost control systems, concepts, and data analysis tools
  • Proven ability to engage senior stakeholders
  • Ability to work to tight timeframes in a complex and demanding environment.
  • Previous experience working on small to medium sized projects is an advantage



Dedicated to providing their staff with the best opportunities for professional development, they are offering an attractive contract rate on an initial 3 month contract but not ruling out the option of extending or becoming permanent.

Fully committed to offering balance to their team, you will have the ability to work from home, in their Brisbane office – or a mix of both, in this full-time role.
