Full job description
  • $180,000 - $240,000+
  • Normally there’s an angle to a role; either a leadership focus, or a BD role or a technical requirement.
  • Not here! This is as general as it gets.
  • Plug and play all-rounder to join a well-resourced Environmental / Contaminated Sites team.



So why would you join this team?


When you strip back a company beyond their projects, perks and brand (which, in this case are all class), then what are you left with?

The people. 

The culture here knows its identity. It feels like a tribe, a group of people who really get along and compliment each other brilliantly. There is balance and harmony. It’s hard to make tangible, but you’ll know when you meet them if they are for you. And if you feel they are, well, then you’re going to want to be a part of what they’re building.



Where you would fit in:


  • Sit alongside 4-5 other very accomplished Principals, and assist across mentorship, leading projects, winning work, developing staff, delivering projects.
  • Multi Million $ Portfolio work for the likes of Defence, Melbourne Water, Suburban Rail Loop, Level Crossing Project with plenty of remediation throughout
  • Small and medium projects - due diligence, assessments, investigations, validations etc for a wide variety of clients
  • Office in Melbourne is now 30, with view to be 40 by years end, which feeds into a larger national group of 300+
  • Core Strength across Contaminated Sites, Environmental Planning and Approvals and Digital / GIS.
  • Deliver Projects at a high level, mentor and train junior staff, and with all Principal roles get involved in client facing duties such as consultation and work winning.


We’ve been taking consultants from the Top Tier Engineering consultancies and placing them into this team Australia wide and ALL of them are extremely satisfied with their move. The common thread for all is that they were excited to join, but didn’t realise just how good it was going to be.




I am actively searching & headhunting for this position. If I haven't reached out to you & you are interested, I may have missed you so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
