Full-Time Hydrogeologist – Project Consultant – Newcastle

AGE Consultants – Hunter Region

Job Description

Groundwater Management
Niche Consultancy
Employee Owned
The Firm

Australasian Groundwater and Environmental Consultants Pty Ltd (AGE) was established in 1997 and is wholly employee owned and operated. AGE has the largest team of groundwater professionals on the East Coast of Australia with 25 full-time professionals across our Brisbane, Newcastle and Townsville offices. With a strong reputation for high quality work, we are an alternative option to the larger multi-disciplinary engineering companies. Being a passionate, niche consultancy, we offer flexibility, professional development, interesting and challenging projects, competitive remuneration, and a collaborative, cohesive team environment. Our clients include the Australian and international mining, gas, government, and engineering sectors.

The Role

AGE is seeking a Hydrogeologist – Project Consultant to join our Newcastle office. Working in the New South Wales mining and water sector, this role function is a balance of field investigations including groundwater sampling, bore/VWP installations, packer testing as well as reporting responsibilities.

Depending on the successful candidate’s skill level, it is envisaged that this role will progress to a Senior Project Consultant within the next 2-3 years.


You will have 1-3 years consulting experience in the New South Wales mining and water sector, with skills in hydrogeological analysis. Having solid experience and an ongoing interest in field investigations, you will be confident to make independent decisions and report results. Your motivation to advance to interpretation and analysis work will be met with a tailored mentoring program.

A knowledge of open pit and underground mining processes will be a strong advantage. High standards of written and verbal communication is essential in this role.

With a minimum of undergraduate qualifications in geoscience, engineering, or environmental science, higher qualifications in hydrogeology would be favoured. You will be keen to build on your strong base competencies and grow with our specialised groundwater team.

The Opportunities

You will be exposed to the assessment of impacts from resource projects on groundwater systems; development of groundwater supplies for towns, villages, mines, irrigation, stock, and domestic purposes; dewatering and groundwater control needs around mines and deep excavations and assessing groundwater to assist in the development, management, and closure of landfills. You will see the simulation of groundwater flow using analytical and numerical models.

After experiencing consistent growth over many years we have a very healthy pipeline of groundwater work and this role will be an integral part of our current and future plans.

A competitive salary commensurate with experience is on offer as well as the opportunity to collaborate with our team of principal consultants who have each worked in the industry for more than 20 years.

This is a long term career opportunity with no glass ceilings and genuine, achievable business ownership options.

If you are keen to grow and build an identity in groundwater management please submit your CV and a cover letter outlining your interest in this role to our recruitment management consultant, Susan Leon. If you wish to have a confidential discussion regarding this opportunity please call Susan Leon on 0402 242 718.
