Senior Geotechnical Engineer - Adelaide


  • Key delivery role servicing our SA client base
  • Semi-autonomous opportunity - annexed role to our Victorian Geotechnical hub
  • Based in Adelaide, South Australia


Geotechnical delivery, project management and building great customer relationships - that’s the role. No distractions.


About the role

This unique role is the perfect opportunity for an experienced geotechnical engineer who loves to work independently and wants to deliver technical solutions for their clients without the distraction of operational management issues.

The role is annexed to our large Victorian geotechnical group who provide geotechnical services and solutions to our clients across Victoria and South Australia.

Reporting to the Geotechnics Leader in Victoria and joining our local geotechnical/environmental team in SA, you’ll have full support from highly-experienced technical leaders and business development teams in Victoria in relation to peer review requirements and new client introductions.

Your focus will be to service our existing clients in South Australia by managing the geotechnical aspects of road infrastructure, renewable developments and commercial and residential construction projects. You’ll be responsible for preparing cost estimates, input into proposals, technical documentation and client reports.

Building on our long term established relationships and keeping an eye out for additional work in the local market will be key to your success.


About you

Qualified in civil/geotechnical engineering or engineering geology, ideally you will have significant client consulting and project management experience.

You’ll need to be a proactive professional, able to work independently and with confidence in your ability to build and maintain strong client relationships for a diverse range of clients in SA.

Areas of technical experience that would be highly considered:

  • Geotech investigations
  • Earthworks (design, specification and construction supervision)
  • Soft soils and numerical modelling (Settle 3D)
  • Geotechnical analysis (Wallap, Plaxis)
  • Temporary Works Analysis and Design
  • Piling and pavement design
  • Engineering geology, rock mechanics and slope assessment (RMS Slope Risk Assessment Accreditation would be an advantage)
  • Acid sulphate soils / erosion and sediment control

Collaborating with your peers in Victoria on a regular basis will be key in this role. You’ll need to be able to travel to Victoria from time to time and to regional areas of South Australia to deliver projects as required.
