Bechtel is a global provider of engineering, construction, and project management services with a reputation for excellence and innovative project delivery.

An opportunity exists within the Bechtel project team to work closely with our customer on the Jadar Project. Jadar will be the one of the largest greenfield projects ever built in Serbia, and the first delivered by M&M in the country. It will produce approximately 10 percent of the world's lithium with 56,000 tpa of lithium carbonate, as well as boric acid (286,000 tpa) and sodium sulphate (252,000 tpa).

The Jadar Project consists of the world's largest deposit (136 Mt) of the newly discovered mineral Jadarite (pronounced " yarda -rite"). The complex project is located near Loznica, approximately 140 km from Serbia's capital Belgrade. Jadar includes an underground mine accessed by two vertical shafts, a processing plant, an industrial waste facility and associated infrastructure.

M&M currently has approximately 30 employees in our customer's office in Brisbane, with two additional colleagues in Rio Tinto's Belgrade office. As the project moves into the next phase, the team's roles will begin transitioning to Belgrade, Serbia. Project execution is expected to begin in 2021.


The Digital Delivery (DD) Manager is at the core of Bechtel's data centric delivery model, and is responsible for understanding the relevant stakeholder information required to deliver the Project and identifying how these outputs will be met through the Project Information Model (PIM).
