Principal Ecologist / Team Leader – Renewables


Brisbane, QLD

  • Technical role progressing into a Leadership role.
  • Bridging the current leadership gap between Directors & team.

You will like how well defined this role is:

The 3x Directors have a wealth of experience in Ecology and Approvals, but they’re running the business, bringing in work, engaging clients, reviewing reports, providing Project Direction – leaving little time for the day to day items

They need you to help setup field programs, guide the juniors what to do and where to do it, be a ‘go to’ for questions and Project Manage most of the time from office (not that much site work).

This provides a really nice platform for you to develop your leadership skills with the guidance and support of the Directors, who have great depth of technical expertise in both Ecology & operations (wok flows, coaching, mentoring, hiring etc).

Current projects include:

  • Multiple Solar farms, BESS, gas/hydrogen pipelines, new parklands, urban development projects.
  • New offices in Fortitude Valley to support 25 (currently at around 20 including casuals).
  • Plenty of support available, working side by side with the company’s senior leadership team.

I like how defined this opportunity is, and if a move to more leadership is on the cards, I’d be seriously considering this one.

NB – we are also looking for field Ecologists in this team, so if you’ve only got a few years experience, ideally with flora exposure, we’d be able to consider bringing you in at a lower level also.


If you’re interested in the role or would like to know more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch (call, text, email – whatever works best for you). Your approach is confidential.
