Clients trust Jacobs with their most complex environmental challenges and opportunities. We partner with federal, state and local government agencies, as well as leading corporate and private sector organisations to provide specialist expertise and advice on the planning, design, construction, operation and repurposing of places and infrastructure around the globe. With a strong pipeline of work in Eastern Australian & New Zealand, we currently have an exciting opportunity in Melbourne for a Senior Environmental Scientist (Contaminated Land) to join our team. Our current and emerging projects span a variety of industry sectors including transport, water, resources, renewables, defence, manufacturing, power and energy. This solid pipeline of work provides our team with tremendous career opportunities, unique projects and a diversity of appealing work. Our integrated service offering which extends across a wide range of environmental disciplines as well as other technical and engineering streams, offers our people an enormous scope for personal and professional growth. 

 Here's What You'll Need: 

As a Senior Environmental Scientist in the Contaminated Land Assessment and Remediation Section, you will take an active role in leading the delivery of projects. This will include providing technical guidance to mid-level and junior staff to support the successful execution of projects. You will seek to provide mentoring to more junior staff in relation to the broad skills required of a consultant, both technical and professional. You will take an active role in business development, be responsible for building client relationships that secure repeat work, as well as winning new work that supports your own professional growth as well as that of others in the team. More specifically, this role will include the following tasks that will be performed with support from other members of the team as appropriate: 

  • Overseeing the effective planning and execution of complex projects. You will provide technical guidance to support other on such projects as well as perform the role of Project Manager for our larger and more complex projects or Project Director and client-facing roles where appropriate. You will be supported by other senior technical and project delivery leaders and you will support more junior members of the team.
  • You will have an in-depth knowledge of the regulatory framework and technical elements of the contaminated land sector within Victoria, and a familiarity with the corresponding elements in other states and regions. You will take an active role in developing others to develop technical skills and knowledge amongst the broader team.
  • You will provide guidance and direction on pursuits, and in some instances lead such pursuits. You will support other senior leaders as required in the pursuit of our larger and more complex opportunities.
  • You will provide informal leadership to the broader Contaminated Land Assessment and Remediation Section, and collaborate with other Sections within our broader business to help deliver successful project outcomes for our clients. You will also contribute towards the growth of our capacity, resilience and technical offering in Victoria and in other states and regions.
