Essential Experience and attitudes that you will bring to the role:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the contaminated land assessment process, hydrogeology, contaminant fate and transport modelling, development of site conceptual models, analytical methodologies and sampling procedures;
  • The ability to write high quality concise technical reports and manage this process;
  • Demonstrate logical and clear thinking;
  • The ability to present, analyse and interpret data;
  • Knowledge of geotechnical field investigation and testing is desirable;
  • Possess excellent oral and written communication skills;
  • Be willing to travel and spend periods of time away on field based projects
