The Opportunity

The need to minimise the impact of infrastructure and development projects upon the biophysical and social environment is increasing, and WSP is at the forefront of proactive environmental planning and project approvals facilitation in this area.

As such, WSP is growing our South Australian development and environmental planning capability to meet a growing client demand, and are looking to hire an experienced Planner in Adelaide to support the current team.

You will manage small to large environmental, urban and regional planning projects including land use planning, environmental assessments, due diligence assessments, development approvals and authorisations/permits as well as drafting submissions, proposals and providing advice to clients. You will also contribute to Victorian and Western Australian-based projects.

You will foster strong client relationships, play a significant role in work-winning initiatives, and have a desire to build your brand in the South Australian market.

Some examples of the key areas we work within include:

  • Transport planning projects and associated Environment and Heritage Impact Assessments
  • Development approvals and technical studies for a range of renewable energy projects, including wind farms, solar farms, BESS and hydrogen projects
  • Planning and environmental support for water infrastructure projects
  • Land use and planning support for other private and government capital works projects

What We'll Love About You

In Addition, You Will Bring
  • A thorough understanding of planning and environmental legislation, policy, and reform directions in South Australia (additional Victorian and / or Western Australian knowledge would be an advantage)
  • Project management or project coordination experience, particularly with approvals pathway planning and the coordination of specialists on environmental impact assessment/planning approval projects
  • Ability to distil complex information, think strategically and translate that thinking into practical solutions
  • Outstanding writing skills, with substantial experience preparing policies, strategies, plans and reports
  • A passion for resolving complex planning and environmental issues and a desire to help shape outcomes in urban and regional areas
