About the Opportunity - Graduate Ecologist

Jacobs terrestrial ecology consultants deliver complex and technically challenging local and national projects to clients involved in a wide range of infrastructure and development activities, including major construction projects, public utilities, transport infrastructure and environmental management programs. Jacobs’ ecologists also provide support to a range of environmental management and some restoration programs. 

Due to continued growth in the terrestrial ecology business, we are seeking a graduate terrestrial ecologist to join our Melbourne team.

These include environmental planning and management, project management, spatial science and survey, geotechnical and scientific services, and water and transport engineering services.

The role is based in Melbourne but will involve regional and interstate work at times as we deliver our services as part of a national team.
