Green team has plenty to offer
ASX- listed energy and resources professional services group WorleyParsons recently announced a number of new initiatives for which it needs a range of skilled and competent professionals.
These include: water projects and initiatives; large environmental group/ focus; and droughtproofing south east Queensland initiatives.
This year, the company acquired North Sydney- based Patterson Britton and Partners ( PBP) and Brisbane- based John Wilson and Partners ( JWP).
The two companies are regarded as two of the leading consultants in the water and environmental services market in Australia with specific capabilities in the coastal and marine, water resources and wastewater, environmental, civil and structural and power markets.
The company sees itself as among a handful of firms setting the industry benchmark for employment in Australia.
Flexibility of employment is a major focus, with staff offered a combination of long term projects and major projects. Staff also have the option of a 4.5 day week, depending on project requirements.
Staff are also encouraged to maintain an effective working environment at home and can buy MS Office Home through the company for just $ 37.
Programs for training and professional development are offered to all staff regardless of whether they are permanent, temporary or on contract.
In the critical area of project management, graduates are granted full access to asset services to help develop their skills in this area. The company boasts a comprehensive list of development programs for graduates across all relevant disciplines.
Staff can opt to salary sacrifice for increased superannuation contributions, annual leave, laptop computers, leased vehicles or other purposes.
The company has 84 offices in 32 countries, providing enormous scope for Australian graduates and established professionals to obtain valuable overseas experience.
Reflecting the competitiveness of the global labour market, salaries and conditions at Worley Parsons are benchmarked annually.
The company even offers an employee referral program, whereby existing staff are paid $ 1000 and up following the employment of new recruits.
Leave entitlements are also very competitive while the company also offers salary continuance insurance against serious illnesses.
