Office based activities may include client liaison, planning, coordination and preparation for field work, data analysis, review and report preparation. You will also be expected to deliver small to medium projects in the role of project manager and to assist with proposal preparation and client relationship management.

You will have a demonstrated track record in working within a team of professional consultants and in meeting clients' needs with the following minimum requirements:
      • Bachelors Degree in Environmental/Earth Sciences, Environmental Engineering or equivalent.
      • Demonstrated competence in all core CLM technical procedures. Developing experience with a range of contaminants and source sites.

      • Competency in data QA and interpretation and able to prepare descriptive and interpretive reports.
      • Delivering projects to agreed budgets and timelines.
      • Assist in/lead the preparation of proposals for a varying range of projects.
