Energy & Resources Policy and Regulatory Expert (Australia)


We’re looking for another great person to join our team in Sydney. Someone who is just as passionate about their own development as they are about our industries. A new colleague who brings their own views and perspective based on their own expertise and experience to date. Ultimately, another friendly face in the office, and another person to join our growing Australian office. Through continued growth, we’re looking for a Policy & Regulations expert to join our team in Australia.

What will you be doing?
