Greening Australia is Australia’s largest environmental enterprise.  We tackle Australia’s biggest environmental challenges with the best science and the best people, who work with communities to return life to landscapes. From restoring Tasmania as an island ark, extensive regeneration activities across the southern Australia agricultural belt, to improving the health of the Great Barrier Reef, we are working to create healthy, productive landscapes across the country. With 120 staff in 25 different locations, we conduct a variety of work ranging from large scale restoration projects to endangered species monitoring.

Scope of Position:

We believe that achieving a significant improvement in the water quality flowing onto the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) from rivers and wetlands is one of Australia’s greatest environmental challenges. In response to this, we have launched our Reef Aid fundraising campaign.

To continue our work to restore rivers and wetlands in the GBR Catchment, we are looking for an experienced practitioner with a high level of technical knowledge relating to wetland, streambank and gully rehabilitation monitoring and evaluation techniques. We currently have multiple large-scale project sites that have secured long-term funding and are ready for implementation.

About you

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced, strategic and dynamic technical lead. You will join our team as we scale up our efforts to improve water quality flowing into the Great Barrier Reef and improve biodiversity and connectivity of coastal wetlands in the GBR catchments.

Your role as a motivated, innovative and enthusiastic Technical Lead will be to spearhead major environmental and social development projects within the Great Barrier Catchment. You will be responsible in the creation and design of new projects with clients and stakeholders and the technical delivery and management of existing programs and projects.


The position is accountable for the provision of technical planning and support, relating to on ground delivery for the region’s GBR restoration projects (Reef Aid), and associated mapping and reporting. You will also contribute to the creation and design of new projects with clients and the delivery and management of existing programs and projects.
