Environmental Technician - Nursery



At MRM, we’re looking for a ‘hands on’ Environmental Technician, keen to take on the challenge of working in an isolated and remote location. This role will be offered as a 12 month fixed term contract. You will be empowered to have complete ownership of the day to day operation of our recently renovated Nursery to ensure the successful implementation of the McArthur River Mine Rehabilitation Program. Ideally, you will have a degree in Environmental Science (or similar), or field experience in either mining, horticulture, or landscaping industries.

As a Glencore team member, we want to set you up for success and give you the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of the NT Gulf environment supported by our leading environmental scientists and consultants. Your typical day will see you; maintain seed supply of key species and coordinate the collection of new stocks during harvesting periods, work with the Senior Environmental Advisor to determine the tubestock requirements for the Rehabilitation Program, produce healthy tubestock to maintain the team productivity goals, maintain irrigation and monitor plants for water stress and maintain Nursery consumables (potting mix, fertilisers, pots etc.)

The role reports to the Senior Environmental Advisor and is FIFO from Darwin, working 8 days on and 6 days off. From here, you can make the most of your 6 day weekend travelling the world which is made easily accessible with Darwin’s International airport or you can stay local and discover the rich culture and heritage of the Northern Territory, places like Kakadu, the Gulf of Carpentaria and Uluru.  We believe in the Territory first and will even help move you here. On site you can join in the touch football comp, sweat it out in an afternoon PT session, enjoy a movie at the cinema, drive a ball on the golf range or join as a member of the clay target shooting club.

You are a good fit with this role if:

  • You have remote work experience whether farm work, nursery work, mining or bush regeneration.
  • You’re physically fit and have a high sense of self-achievement
  • Can communicate effectively in a fast paced and challenging environment
  • You’re right at home in both the office and the great outdoors
