I started at Fyfe in 2020 after moving to Australia from Iran. Previously I was working as an Instrumental and Control Engineer for eight years.
Fyfe made starting my first job in Australia an easy transition. I have been so impressed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Fyfe and I also found the people in Australia to be so nice, which helps me when I am missing my family in Iran.
My role here has given me the opportunity to work with top tier clients but one of my highlights at Fyfe so far has to have been participating in a basic design project for Central Petroleum and then winning the detailed design from the project. It is great to feel trusted and valued by my team leader and manager to be able to be work on such interesting and valuable client projects.
While I have a variety of experience from working in the energy and resources sector in Australia and Iran, there is still always more to learn and working in a highly experienced and knowledgeable team allows me to enhance my knowledge and skills every day.
Fyfe provides their employees with a friendly work environment and fun work culture. Earlier this year, some colleagues and I took part in Fyfe’s run club and trained together for the Brisbane Marathon.
If you are looking for a positive working environment and opportunities for career development, Fyfe is the right place!
Initially, I landed a role as a mechanical engineer at Fyfe. This gave me an insight to energy and resources piping engineering design and surveying. I worked on quite a few engineering designs in my first 6 months, when eventually an opportunity arose internally for a project engineer. This for me was a turning point as I felt I really had to decide if I wanted to go down a technical or more commercial path.
Project management was never a career I had thought about. After graduating from the University of Adelaide, I gained experience in a sales-based role, and then a quality officer role where I developed my soft skills in the engineering space. The experiences I had in these roles allowed me to develop my communication skills, stakeholder management and the ability to pitch ideas effectively. Prior to working at Fyfe, I had worked for a lot of project managers which inspired me to complete my cert 4 in project management.
Now, as a project manager I love that I get a taste of everything from project initiation to execution and closeout. As a project manager, you need to understand the bigger picture to support and drive your team to deliver successful project outcomes. I have been able to work in the Fyfe’s Energy and Resources division, delivering projects for big clients including Santos and Beach. I enjoy the challenge of managing the commercial aspects as well as liaising with internal and external stakeholders for our projects. I love talking so I find my outgoing personality greatly assists me in my role as a PM.
Fyfe has created a respectful and safe workplace for all employees. I enjoy being able to work with colleagues from different cultural backgrounds, upbringings, and viewpoints in a collaborative environment. It is a great strength of the company that despite any differences, we come together to unite and always deliver as a team. I have now been working in the project management space for nearly 2 years at Fyfe and can whole heartedly say it has been the best decision for me.
Fyfe’s diversity comes in different forms – culture, personalities, and technical expertise. People at Fyfe embrace all these differences to learn from each other.
I have been given opportunities to hone my technical and leadership skills, and a chance to discover more of my interests. I feel as though Fyfe has not only been the perfect workplace for me, but the perfect playground, where I can reach for the bars without being afraid of hurting myself. Fyfe is a safe place where I can learn and try things, knowing that my managers and my colleagues have my back.
I love that we do coffees and lunches together, we celebrate birthdays, have barbeques, and sometimes even go out for dinner! People here are approachable, it’s easy to ask them questions, and they’re always happy to help you learn.
It has been great working with Fyfe and seeing it grow not just in numbers but its capabilities and strengths. Fyfe would not be Fyfe if not for its people.
I’ve been at Fyfe for a few years now and the culture here is truly great. I love that collaboration is deeply ingrained in our work ethic; we always exchange ideas and offer each other support. This cooperative atmosphere is a constant source of inspiration. Within the company, every individual's input is highly valued and celebrated.
It's an environment that fosters innovation and personal growth, making every day at Fyfe a rewarding experience.
Not only does Fyfe have an excelling workplace culture, with everyone having the shared goal of providing high quality work for our clients, but the work is stimulating as well. My time at Fyfe has been very valuable in providing a practical, real-world implementation of the theoretical concepts that I have learnt at university.
As someone who learns best by doing, Fyfe has given me a great opportunity to thrive in a practical and real-world professional environment. I am able to work on a large variety of projects across Australia, and with advanced technology including drones, LiDAR units, GPS and 3D modelling software.
