  • Proficiency in GIS software (ArcMap and QGIS);
  • Good working knowledge of ARR 2019, TMR Drainage Manual, and QUDM; and,
  • Programming skills in Python and/or R would be desirable.

Qualifications

  • Tertiary Qualifications in a relevant Engineering discipline, Water Resource Management or Environmental Science/Hydrology - essential;
  • RPEQ/CPEng – (or in the process of obtaining.)

What We Offer

When you join AECOM, you become part of an organisation which is pioneering the future.

Our teams around the world are involved in some of the most innovative projects and programs of our time, addressing the big challenges of today and shaping the built environment for generations to come.

We ensure a workplace that encourages growth, flexibility and creativity, as well as a company culture that champions inclusion, diversity and overall employee well-being.

Our core values define who we are, how we act and what we aspire to, which comes down to not only delivering a better world but working to “make amazing happen” in each neighbourhood, community and city we touch. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we believe in each person’s potential, and we’ll help you reach yours.

This position is open to full-time, part-time and flexible employment, so we welcome you to apply whatever your preferred work situation. We offer a competitive salary and exceptional benefits package for this role.
