A growing list of opportunities requires the expansion of our Queensland team. As such, we’re looking to hire two experienced environmental advisors or consultants.

You will join one of the largest environmental team in QLD which is made of qualified environmental scientists/engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists and environmental/human health risk assessors. You'll also work closely with other technical disciplines on high-profile multi-disciplinary projects and support clients to deliver on city and community-enhancing projects in the transport, oil and gas, water, power/renewables, property and resources sectors, while managing the impact of site contamination and focusing on sustainable solutions that support long-term human health and environmental values.

Day to day, you will:

  • Oversee junior consultants/contractors and take responsibility for safe, compliant and quality field work programs (e.g. sampling of soil, groundwater, soil vapour, ambient air...)
  • Interrogate investigation data, develop conceptual site models and prepare technical reports and assessments
  • Review and approve the work produced by less senior consultants and/or peers, providing coaching and mentorship
  • Foster strong relationships with existing clients and develop local relationships
  • Develop and attract talent to achieve growth and foster a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing that generates long‐term learning and development of capability
  • Be Future Ready and champion innovation in everything we do

Some of the key projects we’ve been involved in:

  • Gold Coast Council Surface Water and Landfill Gas Monitoring Programs – sample collection in over 50 locations from a boat or kayak throughout several recreational lakes, and digital recording of field parameters
  • RAAF Base Townsville/ Lavarack Barracks PFAS Investigations – regulatory compliance investigations, development of monitoring programs and design/implementation of remedial options
  • Cairns Airport – environmental monitoring, PFAS assessment, hydrocarbons management, risk assessments and due diligence
  • We've also recently managed projects related to Acid Sulfate Soil investigations, Environmental Due Diligence (mergers and acquisitions), Statistical analysis of groundwater monitoring data, Landfills investigation, management, contamination management plans for construction projects, remediation action plans, etc.

What we'll love about you

You’re enthusiastic, reliable, great at building collaborative working relationships and keen to take the next step up in your career.

We specifically seek individuals with:         

  • Hands on knowledge of site sampling techniques, investigation methodologies and remediation technologies for groundwater, soil and gas
  • Understanding of QLD regulations pertaining to the management of contaminated sites
  • Consulting experience will be favourably considered
  • A current Australian Driver’s License
  • A desire to mentor junior staff and grow local business (Project Manager level)
