EMR recognises the value of a diverse workforce, and we welcome applications from all backgrounds.

About our opportunity:

The impact on the environment is across every news bulletin and every front page. You’re a Project Manager who has run multiple projects. Your customers trust you to deliver, and you go out of your way to meet your commitments. You’re thinking about moving your career to something which means more. You want to be involved in making our world a better place, leading and collaborating on projects that contribute toward solving some of the complex sustainability issues of our time. 
Scrolling through LinkedIn jobs during your lunch isn’t bringing up anything to float your boat.

  • Collaborating: You build, maintain and manage relationships through your honest, inclusive and dependable approach. You get the best outcome in the interests of the business, our customers and our suppliers. You will be visiting depots and meeting customers when you can to get a feel for our business and industry.
  • Communicating: You prepare weekly and monthly reports related to your project for management and any other updates or reports, so the business knows what impact is being made and where.
