The Role
We have a challenging and expanding workload across a number of interesting projects including as a technical advisor to a large government client. The large-scale infrastructure projects require multidisciplinary teams, and so the role involving working with other environmental, planning and design specialists across several projects.
While working in the planning and design phases of major infrastructure projects, our primary role is to identify contamination-related issues that may impact upon planning and approvals as well as the actual delivery phase of projects

Here are the key things you will do to 'bring ideas to life'.
  • Scoping up large scale field assessments
  • Preparing a wide-ranging spectrum of deliverables - from SAQPs, contamination impact assessment reports, reuse strategies and waste designation applications.
  • Attending and contributing to risk workshops
  • Attending meetings and presenting to stakeholders where needed - including client and regulatory stakeholders.

What we are looking for
  • A tertiary qualification in environmental science, engineering, geology or equivalent.
  • Approximately 5-10 years' experience in a relevant industry
  • Strong technical reporting writing skills - experience preparing a range of different deliverables
  • Can articulate the findings of environmental concepts (sometimes complex) in a simple manner to arrange of stakeholders.
  • The ability to work in large / diverse multi-disciplinary teams - as our works often involve working with other environmental disciplines, designers / engineers and project managers.
  • Infrastructure related experience (preferred if possible).

We value the difference each team member brings, and we look for people who have had a broad range of experiences and a growth and learning mindset.
