Team Leader, Heritage (NSW)


Biosis Pty Ltd


Sydney or Wollongong, NSW

Biosis is looking to appoint an experienced archaeologist to lead our growing NSW heritage team and join a market-leading consultancy which provides ecological, heritage, GIS and environmental approval services throughout south-eastern Australia. 

Biosis employs a highly experienced multi-disciplinary team that includes archaeologists, botanists, zoologists, aquatic ecologists, environmental planners and GIS operators.  We have offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Albury, Ballarat, Newcastle, Wangaratta and Wollongong.

We are seeking a Team Leader - Heritage with experience in NSW archaeology, people management, mentorship, business development and project management, with attention to detail and the ability to meet deadlines being critical to the role. This position is ideal for a highly motivated individual willing to participate fully in a team environment. Reporting to the NSW Operations Manager, the Team leader – Heritage will be responsible for managing, developing and growing the heritage team, management of existing client relationships, developing new relationships, resource scheduling, technical oversight and financial oversight of projects.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a heritage professional looking to develop their career in people management and influence the growth and direction of our NSW heritage team.

To be considered for this role, you will meet the following selection criteria:

  • Appropriate tertiary qualifications in archaeology.
  • A minimum of ten years’ archaeological or heritage management experience in either consulting or the public sector.
  • Experience of leading and mentoring junior staff in technical and project management skills.
  • Experience of managing projects, taking accountability for client service and satisfaction, budget and financial management, as well as quality control and team leadership.
  • Experience in sales, client relationship management and business development including proposal preparation and client liaison.
  • Previous experience working within a consulting environment would be favorable as well as a keen interest in the environment.
  • Demonstrated experience of the ability to develop trusted working relationships with senior staff, both within and outside of Australia.

You can choose your preferred location (ideally Wollongong [Port Kembla] or potentially Sydney), with unique benefits to both. In Wollongong you would have all of the advantages of living in one of NSW’s premier regional centres; all of the services of a big city but with affordable housing, short commuting times and a relaxed lifestyle. Our Sydney office is located close to the CBD and is easily accessible by public transport. We are a short walk from Redfern or Green Square Train Station. This provides access to all the services of Sydney without the hassle of traffic and parking.

Biosis offers the security of an established firm with support services in WHS, HR and accounts, an experienced team in GIS, environmental approvals, ecology and heritage consulting and a supportive work culture.  We will provide you with a competitive salary package consisting of base plus super, professional membership and conference allowance, plus a wide range of employment benefits.
