Emerge Associates is an established employee-owned firm providing both environmental and landscape architecture consulting services, with offices in Subiaco, Margaret River and Melbourne.

We have established dedicated teams providing environmental consulting services covering contaminated sites and acid sulfate soils, environmental planning and management, hydrology and urban water management, ecology, bushfire and sustainability.

Don’t be pigeon-holed. Join our team and provide practical solutions to our valued clients across diverse business sectors including local government; state government; large and boutique residential and commercial property developers for greenfield and brownfield projects; mining, oil and gas; industrial facility operators; and private landowners.

No two of our projects are the same. They include all stages of contaminated site investigations and remediation; due diligence and legal advice; and environmental monitoring.  The contaminated sites team also undertakes acid sulfate soil investigations.

About the Role

Emerge Associates has a range of roles available for suitably qualified Environmental Consultants to join our Contaminated Land & Acid Sulfate Soils team, based in Subiaco. You will work with a dynamic team of environmental consultants providing contaminated land assessment and remediation, and consulting on a wide range of projects.

We are seeking an applicant with demonstrable experience in contaminated site assessment, preferably in Western Australia. Whilst the position is Perth based, it will provide specialist technical advice for projects occurring across Western Australia and support for our Melbourne projects.

This role would suit a talented environmental consultant early in their career, or someone with experience looking to challenge themselves with a new opportunity. The right candidate will have a drive to succeed and be able to make the role their own.

  • Tertiary qualifications in Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science or suitable related discipline.

  • Working knowledge of national and Western Australian contaminated site legislation, policies and guidelines.
  • A keen eye for detail and capacity to interpret data in relation to complex technical issues.
  • Demonstrated aptitude for detailed report writing.
  • High level of competency using chemical database, bore logging and other related industry software programs (e.g. ESdat, Surfer and gInt).
