About the role

In outer urban and regional areas where no municipal sewage collection and reticulation exists, the treatment and disposal of human waste is reliant on land application, and generally the responsibility of the property owner or developer. The assessment of the land that wastewater is disposed to and the treatment method employed is critical to both public and environmental health. Onsite wastewater assessment and design relies on a knowledge of wastewater treatment, soil mechanics, hydraulic systems, and evaluation of site suitability and risk.

To be seriously considered for this role, you will have:

  • Outstanding stakeholder management skills
  • Ability to communicate with the public and stakeholders, and explain technical issues in clear and simple terms
  • Be both strategic and solution-focused
  • A willingness to learn new skills and be innovative with each new project
  • A preparedness to engage with regulators, and understand public health and environmental regulations
  • Experience with pumping systems and hydraulics
  • Ability to work independently, and have experience working in the field
  • Solid project management skills
  • A commitment to making a difference in the workplace and the broader community

On offer for the successful candidate:

  • A competitive salary and benefits package
  • Supportive management and excellent resources
  • An excellent, collaborative team environment
  • Professional development and support of your career ambitions
  • Be part of the Top Techer recognition program

Advantageous to this role would be:

A person with a good sense of humour, works well with little supervision, is committed to client satisfaction and who enjoys working in the field. Having a background in geotechnical survey, soil mechanics, and /or soil science, would be a big advantage.
