JOB DESCRIPTION

The Role

Shell is committed to being part of the solution to climate change and reducing Australia’s net carbon emissions, whilst supporting regional businesses and communities. Select Carbon is part of Shell’s Nature Based Solutions business, working with Australian farmers and landowners to adopt innovative land management practices.


With a proven track record partnering with landholders, Select Carbon have developed over 70 carbon sequestration projects that are currently participating in the Federal Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund and other carbon offset markets.


Select Carbon are committed to increasing carbon sequestration in vegetation and soil, and reduce emissions where possible, to reduce Australia’s net carbon emissions.

Where you fit in


Select Carbon is Shell’s first acquisition globally for its Nature-Based Solutions business, which invests in forests, grasslands, wetlands and other natural ecosystems around the world to reduce emissions and capture CO2 while benefiting biodiversity and local communities.

What’s the role?

The Project Officer - Rangeland Vegetation Specialist will work within an established Select Carbon team to manage carbon farming projects that add value to livestock businesses in the farming and pastoral regions of eastern Australia. The primary focus is on projects using the Human-Induced Regeneration methodology (Carbon Farming Initiative/Emissions Reduction Fund), but with potential to expand into other land-based methodologies such as environmental plantings, forestry or soil carbon.

The successful applicant will join a team with experience, expertise and enthusiasm for aligning carbon farming with livestock production and environmental management. Select Carbon has an industry-leading position in integrating innovative and modern production practices into carbon farming projects.

The successful candidates will have experience in managing and monitoring land condition and native vegetation, ideally in the context of pastoral or agricultural production systems.


Some of the key deliverables and responsibilities for this role are as follows:

  • Work with Select Carbon staff, landholders, agribusinesses, governments and other stakeholders to develop and oversee carbon farming projects to ensure they run smoothly, align with the goals of producers, meet compliance and optimise the production of carbon credits.

  • Work with individual pastoralists, agribusiness companies, and a range of stakeholders to implement carbon farming projects

  • Be up to date with relevant new technologies, research and management practices, and with experience in native vegetation management and monitoring.

  • Collate, analyse and report data, with a high level of competency in using spreadsheets or project management applications, and a high level of rigour in developing and following processes and systems to meet compliance

Crucial to the success of this role is the ability to work collaboratively and lead effectively across multi-functional teams and interface with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, based in various locations, and being able to work autonomously.


What we need from you

  • A tertiary qualification (Bachelor or higher degree) in agricultural science, natural resource management, or equivalent

  • Professional experience within the land, environmental, agricultural or carbon sectors

  • Strong ability to communicate the science and the application of innovative land management to a range of stakeholders, including pastoralists, Traditional Owner groups, government agencies, the Clean Energy Regulator and other interested parties

  • Awareness and experience with the Emissions Reduction Fund/Carbon Farming Initiative, including compliance, monitoring and reporting is highly desirable

  • High attention to detail and strong organisational and project management skills

  • Excellent written and oral communications skills, with experience in monitoring and reporting

  • A current Driver’s license is essential, preferably a manual vehicle license and 4WD experience is preferred

  • Willingness to travel and work in remote locations for extended periods of time (typically 1-2 weeks) to conduct vegetation monitoring and communicate with landholder partners


This role can be based in Albury NSW or Brisbane QLD.
