National Lead - Urban Water
The Alluvium Group
Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle or Canberra
Alluvium was formed in 2006 with a focus on river health management and over time has grown to be one of Australia’s largest and most trusted brands delivering holistic catchment to coast science, engineering and economics. We now employ over 100 staff and have an increasing presence internationally.
Our work in urban areas now comprises around 40% of the group time and efforts. This includes planning and engineering of water quality treatment, economic and investment strategies to improve water management and scientific advice on ecological or human health management. Our aim is to truly understand the best science and being able to apply that to on-ground challenges.
We like to use the lessons over decades of work in natural resources management in the urban zone and are excited by the opportunities that exist.
If you are the right person for this role you will likely know many of the people who work within our group. We want someone to co-ordinate and build between the different disciplines and geographies in which we work.
The Alluvium Group
The Alluvium Group brings together four organisations who share a common purpose: to make a difference to the world we live in.
Our four businesses share a collective vision, strategy and a commitment to client service. Our business model is unique and driven by a genuine belief that a focus on technical depth and excellence better serves our clients.
We work together when it adds value, for instance jointly investing in the Group’s R&D program to give back to the industry and to ensure that the latest science has a path to implementation.
As a group we are focussed on an enabling culture in order to remove barriers to creativity and encourage people to develop as leaders throughout our industry.
The strength of our group is embedded in the independent business decision making of our company boards and leadership, and the ability of each entity to focus on delivering exceptional work for our clients.
Work in urban environments is one of our key focus areas and involves businesses across the Alluvium Group. We undertake several hundred projects each year for clients who are passionate about improving the way our cities manage water and their environment. We have a number of staff who are recognised as leaders in the field.
Our goal is to be influential in issues of the environment and communities. This role has two main aims:
