Meet some of our team Members
From specialist technical engineer to multi-specialty coordinator, from project head to running a subsidiary: you can move from one speciality to another. You can also go from one universe to another: from rail to urban and the other way round. Or go out to break a new market, like the high-end bus service.
From Australia to India, via Brazil or the Middle East, there are multiple international opportunities. The company operates in more than 80 countries and has worked on 3,500 projects round the world.
Marion Guesnier - Sydney
As a Senior Consultant in the Transport Advisory Department of SYSTRA Scott Lister, I am supporting ANZ operators and government agencies in defining their strategy for transport system development and performance improvement.
I enjoyed drawing desirable cities in the sand so much when I was a child that I ended up graduating in Urban System Engineering, a discipline at the crossroads of Urban Planning, Transport Engineering, Civil Engineering and Architecture.
Then I joined SYSTRA France for my final year project, in early 2015. Since I’m on board I’ve been exposed to a variety of projects in transport planning and performance optimisation for new or existing transport systems. I have had the chance to work from high-level strategy definition through to performance in operation and maintenance. Included in this has been macroscopic transport modelling, network and traffic optimization studies, rail performance modelling, cost-benefit analyses, development of digital tools for transport studies, and new mobility services (Mobility-as-a-Service, Autonomous Air Transport, Carsharing and others).
I have truly appreciated to work with very knowledgeable people and to experience different transport environments (including ANZ, Europe, the US and the Middle East) so I could learn to both empathise with local network constraints and bring good practice suggestions to define better transport solutions for more liveable, sustainable and inclusive cities.
Nikita Slinko - Sydney
I have been with SYSTRA Scott Lister since October 2016 and have had extensive opportunities to grow and develop a suite of skills across a wide range of fields.
Immediately, I was exposed to major projects, including the opportunity to work on the Newcastle Light Rail, Sydney Metro, and Melbourne Metro Tunnel. SYSTRA is a global company, I’ve had the invaluable opportunity to work with international teams and learn from projects across three continents.
There is no average day for me at SYSTRA. There is no average colleague. I’ve put my hand up for all opportunities to help and learn from range of experts in SYSTRA and have been rewarded with the chance to develop a technical background covering a large range of projects. I have often found myself working alongside driven colleagues and managers, who’ve helped me grow.
I’ve always felt welcome in every setting. There truly is an open culture where my input was valued from day one. As my responsibilities have increased, I’ve always felt a strong level of backing, ensuring that I’ve been able to take leaps and bounds in my personal growth. Management at all levels has been responsive and proactive, this extends to activities such as informal morning coffee catchups, and team sports events.
Joanne Smyth - London
When I was two years old the only toy I asked Santa for was a train set, so I guess it should be no surprise that I’ve spent the past decade of my career specialising in Human Factors for the railway industry!
I have been with SYSTRA Scott Lister for 2 years and am based in the London office. My day-to-day my job involves carrying out analysis and studies to understand how railway operations, maintenance and control functions should be designed from the perspective of the end-user, and managing the integration of people-related requirements into projects. The railway is such a complex and diverse system so I find that every project presents lots of different challenges and exciting opportunities.
I love to travel so it was a great surprise to find out that my first SYSTRA Scott Lister assignment required me to work at the Sydney headquarters for six-weeks!
Since joining the company my professional confidence has undoubtedly increased and I feel that this is definitely the right job and company for me.
Alex NG - Sydney
I joined SYSTRA Scott Lister (SSL) in October 2017. I am the Senior Financial Accountant based in Sydney, my primary responsibilities include month end report, cash flow, budget, financial reporting and maintaining our accounting systems. Lots of people think accounting is a boring job, however, I love to see the reports and financial models that I have made contribute to shaping the company strategies and adding value to the team and management group.
I enjoy working with all the different teams and operations and being part of the SYSTRA group you can always get help from the most knowledgeable and talented people.
SSL is a great place to work and it offers a flexible working culture which gives me a good work/family life balance.
