5 minutes with the Founder – Vince Williams

What do you love about working at Tungsten Structures?

I love that we are rewarded by clients for the quantitative value that we add to their projects, not just the hourly efforts that we produce. I love that we are the best in the business and that we are sought after from far and wide. I love that we have the foresight to leverage world class technology and be supported by world class talent. I love that our daily contribution is having a significant impact on all those around us, including ourselves and our planet, one tonne of structural steelwork at a time.

What makes Tungsten Structures so successful?

I recognise that without the team this business would not exist, nor be the success story that it is today. I recognise that without the teams’ support we could not deliver our vision to be the number one value add engineering firm in Australia. I recognised this on day one, even before the important contributions from the team had existed. The business is not called Williams Engineering for this very reason. Instead it’s an all-inclusive brand, one that employees can shift well into the future and beyond my years. It’s no coincidence that Tungsten is the strongest element on the periodic table. Our brand naturally exudes this inherent strength.

Why do employees want to work at Tungsten Structures?

We provide the environment for our employees to fulfil the balanced lifestyle that they seek. We provide the space needed to inspire their minds with personal pursuits so that they can apply that inspiration back into our shared working environment. We support the team to teach, learn and grow so that they can be the best version of themselves to harness, strengthen and showcase their unique expertise. We instil pure trust in one another so that all employees can work within the realms of their natural flow with absolute autonomy. Together we support each other unconditionally, ensuring that no one is left behind. We are genuine and relatable to one another. We extend that personal trait to people of all walks of life, to engage with them on their level. By understanding each other and adapting to one another we achieve great things with great people. But even greater than all these things, employees want to work at Tungsten Structures so that they can embrace a creative mindset to achieve the greatest potential.

The Tungsten Structures Evolution

When you join a new company you want to know where it’s come from and where it’s going right? We get it and we believe in cultivating a culture of transparency, growth and opportunity for every single person in our team.

But in a nutshell, here’s a summary of the Tungsten Structures journey so far:

  • Established - 2015

    Vince created Tungsten Structures to live and work by his values and drive his own future.

  • 2016 - 2017

    Tungsten grew to a team of three Engineers with demand for work organically increasing. Continue to experience sustainable growth purely through referrals and building solid relationships.

  • 2018 - 2019

    Manila office opened and the Tungsten Team grows to nine including Engineers, Tekla Technicians and support team members.

  • 2019 and beyond

    Continue to strengthen and build our Tungsten Structures talent base and automation of processes across all key pillars. Diversify our product offerings and increase our presence to more national locations.

What our employees say about working here

“I enjoy the supportive team and workplace culture, innovative processes and challenging the status quo of delivering structural engineering services”

“Tungsten Structures is a young, positive and professional environment. I’ve learnt a lot across a range of projects and structural aspects, not being pigeon holed”

“When I get asked what my other job is, I explain that I work for an innovative structural engineering firm run by a bunch of really cool people that are great to work for.  The environment is fun and flexible which is great for me whilst I am still running my own business”

“I love the autonomy that is encouraged while still providing a supportive workplace and team. I enjoy that we are true to our word and follow through with promises and our core principles are what we embody rather than just words on a page.”

“I have a lot of friends from school, previous workplaces and in my local community, and when I talk to them about my current work it makes me proud. Working flexible hours, not having to wear corporate attire or uniforms makes me feel comfortable and being comfortable means less stress and being more productive.”

Why work at Tungsten Structures?

Besides working for a business that challenges the status quo, breaks the mould, doesn’t follow the norms and is run by innovative and contemporary minds, Tungsten Structures offers some great benefits for employees. Some of these include:

Flexible working

This is innate in our business and we see this as part of modern day working and living our company values. We firmly believe in treating our team as the responsible, educated and intelligent adults that they are. As professionals we understand the outputs required of us in our work and we can manage our workload accordingly. This means we don’t need to work for works sake or sit at our desk for set hours.

Incentives & Future Ownership

The company was not called ‘Williams Consulting’ for a reason. It’s a business that is run by the people for the people, not for one particular person’s agenda. Upon reaching a sustainable business model we will be investigating the most suitable means for distributing discretionary incentives and offering business directorships/ownership.

Manage your life

In line with the Tungsten approach to flexible working, where an employee needs to attend personal appointments (less than 3 hours) during work hours, they may use their discretion to arrange these without having to take leave.

The Tungsten Way:

BALANCE  |  AUTONOMY  |  SUPPORTIVE

Continued Professional Development

Tungsten Structures strongly promote continued professional development and encourage all employees to seek on the job and external training and development. Tungsten provides financial support and in-house training to pursue these opportunities customised for each individual.

Tracking outputs not just time

The Tungsten approach to timesheets is not about tracking your time to micromanage your work, rather it is used to inform our business decisions. You aren’t expected to record a minimum of 7.5 hours every single day of the week. Your individual performance is linked to outcomes rather than the hours worked.

Bring your pet to work

In line with the open nature of the Tungsten office, employees can bring their pets to work.  We acknowledge that pets are like family and they can make a great addition to the workplace.

Dress for the occasion

The Tungsten office is a relaxed space where you aren’t required to wear suits/ties/formal work attire. Of course, we look the part when we attend meetings or industry events, but for the most part we enjoy comfort while we work!
