Principal Environmental Planner – Approvals


Sydney, NSW

250 — 300

  • Sydney or Newcastle based. 
  • $250,000+ pkg.
  • Leadership Position.

All the right pieces are in place in this team, with current capability in EIS, REF delivery, Ecology, GIS and Contaminated Sites. The majority sit in Newcastle but with a newly opened & growing Sydney office.
The teams are humming nicely but need a leader to tie it all together. So this role will suit someone that isn’t just a Manager, but a true Leader with a knack for helping people achieve their full potential.

In short:

  • Deliver projects across Mining, Energy, Renewables, Water, Councils
  • Supported by a team of 4 in NSW delivering REFs and EISs with REAP sign-off sub contracted at the moment – ideally we keep this in-house
  • Drive project outcomes for Major State Significant Infrastructure and Developments
  • Leadership at the Technical and Operational level within NSW
  • Drive clients (supported by National BD Manager) – currently turning work away so this is not a huge task.
  • International Consultancy.
  • $250,000+ on offer


  • Ideally they need you to be a REAP Accredited Environmental Planning and Approvals Specialist.
  • 10+ years in Environmental Planning within Consulting.


If you’re interested or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Your approach will be held confidentially.
