Water Technology Pty Ltd


South Fremantle, WA

Up to $180,000 p.a.

Who is Water Technology and what do we do?

We are an engineering and environmental consulting business specialising in surface water, groundwater, waterways, coastal and marine challenges, operating nationally with over 140 happy and engaged employees. We value our people and understand that they are key to our success. We encourage an open, innovative and supportive culture with a focus on professional development and creating career pathways. We work with private and public clients across Australia and New Zealand.

People love working with us because we genuinely value their contribution and care about our team. We are collaborative and innovative, and we love what we do.

The opportunity for a Principal Coast & Environment is available for a people and business leader looking for their next achievement in the environmental, coastal and water consulting space. In this role you will:

  • Lead and manage the Western Australia Coastal team and its service delivery.
  • Represent Water Technology's innovation and technical excellence in Western Australia.
  • Proactively facilitate the Coastal group's business planning, including identifying prospects, developing and maintaining client and industry relationships, project planning and technical input.

About you

You are someone who drives business growth and you are eager to bring goals to fruition. You care about the development of your team and you work collaboratively with your peers. Along your career journey, you have:

  • Demonstrated record of achievement and leadership in coastal management.
  • Experience in leading teams and providing technical mentorship.
  • Excellent tendering skills and winning business through nurturing relationships.
  • Relevant tertiary qualifications.

If you have worked on coastal projects in other locations around Australia, it will be a definite advantage, but not essential. Most importantly we are seeking someone who is passionate about water resources, and can actively develop their team to grow and develop into industry leaders.

Why join us?

Besides a collaborative and innovative culture, we offer the opportunity to be a technical leader in Western Australia with the opportunity to work on projects across the country. We also encourage our senior team members to continuously focus on their development. Some of the benefits we offer our people are:

  • The option to purchase annual leave.
  • Hybrid workplace, with the ability to work from home.
  • Financial contribution and genuine support of your career goals and professional development.
  • Excellent work-life balance driven by the leadership team.
  • The opportunity to purchase shares (we are employee owned after all).
  • Diversity and Inclusion committee to ensure a great work environment and working relationships.
  • Generous bonus structure.
  • Monthly health and wellbeing activities.
  • Monthly recognition award.

Water Technology is proud to contribute to the increasing diversity of the Australian workforce. Supporting equity and diversity means supporting opportunities for all candidates to find suitable employment. As an inclusive recruiter and employer, we recognise individual differences, embrace individual strengths and look for opportunities for everyone to achieve their full potential.
