Full job description

Senior Geotechnical Engineer to Principal to join the Newcastle team of an Australian Consultancy with an impressive growth profile, having gone from 150 – 400+ staff within the last 5 years.

  • Some examples of recent projects include: 
  • Structure design & audit, retaining structures, pavements, landslide risk assessments, soil & rock slope stability and more.

  • Secondment opportunities in their growing international offices.  
  • Annual reviews with an average yearly salary increase of 10+%.
  • Above industry average salary – to be discussed at interview stage.
  • Paid overtime if overtime becomes necessary.
  • Clearly defined advancement structure with very developed training modules designed to progress both your technical & client skills.
