JOB DESCRIPTION

GHD's Career Relaunch Program is back for 2021
Are you looking to return to work after a career break?

Returning to work after an extended career break can be challenging. That's why we've developed a Career Relaunch Program to encourage and welcome professionals back into the workforce in a flexible environment with excellent growth opportunities.

This initiative is motivated by GHD's commitment to empower and grow hardworking, career-oriented people. The program first launched in 2017, and following the success, it is now a national annual program that is growing every year.

To support your return to work, you will be partnered with a mentor and work closely with a designated team that aligns with your skillset. We will provide training opportunities designed to build your confidence and ease your transition back into the workplace.

See what some of our relaunch alumni have to say about this program:

Emma Harrison | Business Group Leader - Contamination & Environmental Management | Sydney, NSW
"As a mother of four, I felt resigned to the fact that after 10 years out of the scientific industry the only way back in was through full time study. Then I found GHD's Career Relaunch Program in 2018, which offered me a genuine opportunity to redevelop my career while still being able to support my four boys as a single parent. I was offered an ongoing role as Senior Environmental Geologist after the program ended, and now three years later I have moved into a new leadership role as the Business Group Leader for Contamination and Environmental Management and look after 40 wonderful professionals in this group."

Laura Trotta | Sustainability, Resilience and Climate Service Line Coordinator | Adelaide, SA
"I took a career break from engineering initially to care for my first baby, but the break grew to nine years after I founded a successful online sustainability business. After selling my business I looked for new opportunities and decided to come back to engineering after seeing GHD's Career Relaunch Program. Today I work part-time in the Environment and Planning team in Adelaide and also as a Coordinator for our Sustainability Service Line and have been able to expand my skillset in sustainability with the flexibility I need."

Anna Hamilton | Environmental Scientist | Perth, WA
"After 10 years as an environmental consultant, I decided to take a leap and retrain as a high-school teacher so I could be more available for my children before and after school. But as my children got older, and I wanted to get back into my passion in consulting, my lack of recent experience was seen as a barrier when applying for roles. Then I found GHD's Career relaunch Program, which gave me a chance to refresh my skills and grow my professional network once again, all while working flexibly and being paid."

We are currently looking for professionals with experience in:

  • Engineering (across multiple disciplines)
  • Environmental and Earth Sciences
  • Project Management
  • Advisory (including Economics, Mathematics, Journalism, Business, Commerce, Finance)
  • Architecture and Landscape Architecture
  • Business Services (across core corporate functions including HR)
To be considered for the program, you will need to be available to work on a casual basis for a minimum of 24 hours p/w, Monday to Friday for the duration of the program (July - October 2021). You must also have been out of the workforce for approximately two years or more, and have a minimum of four years previous commercial experience. At the conclusion of the program, there will be potential for ongoing employment with GHD for suitable candidates.
