Skills Required

  • Chemistry Degree or equivalent in a related subject

An extremely competitive base salary and comprehensive benefits package is just the start. You will have the opportunity to develop your skills and career with a progressive consultancy that is considered the benchmark for excellence by their clients. You will have a personal mentor to provide guidance and technical assistance as required, with both internal and external training conducted to supplement your own on the job learning.
Positive behaviours are rewarded by a reactive review process that allows proactive individuals to advance in line with their achievements, and you will have the opportunity to excel across a wide range of exciting projects, not the least of which being to make a significant contribution to our nation's clean energy future.
