You will also need strong technical writing skills, and experience with AutoCAD will be highly regarded.

You will have the experience and awareness needed to ensure all works carried out are compliant with relevant codes and standards, and have a commitment to workplace health and safety. Knowledge of Safety of Machinery AS 4024 will be highly regarded.
