This is an exciting opportunity for you to join a specialist environmental consultancy in Melbourne as a Senior Environmental Scientist.

Joining an office of 35 and an established contaminated sites team, you will be responsible for managing and delivering projects for their petroleum, industrial and landfill projects.

The team is tight-knit and even though they’re not the largest contaminated sites team, they punch above their weigh and compete with the largest engineering consultancies in Victoria. For example, they’ve recently won a 10 year industrial project worth $30m.

On a broader note, they’re active in the industry with the ACLCA and want to keep their staff at the forefront of the industry.

Your role will include:

  • Project management – this includes delivery, client and financial management
  • Contaminated land assessments
  • Environmental site investigations – soil contamination, groundwater monitoring, vapour risk assessments and landfill gas monitoring
  • Mentoring junior staff and forward planning for their future
  • Assisting with tender documents and proposals

You will need:

  • 6 – 10 + years of experience as an environmental scientist
  • A relevant science or engineering degree
  • Familiarity with VIC or national environmental legislation 
  • The ability to work without restriction in Australia

You will receive a market leading salary around the $120-150k inclusive of super that is highly negotiable for the right candidate. More experienced candidates are encouraged to apply as everyone brings something different to the table.
