Dear Sir/Madam

Re: Senior Environmental Scientist, Ref: 024479

I am writing to apply for the position of Senior Environmental Scientist at Envirotron Consultancy Group as advertised on Seek.com on 15 January.

With eight years experience in environmental science, I possess advanced practical and technical knowledge coupled with a passion for water conservation. I have solid experience working with cutting edge water management, sustainability studies, rain and storm water harvesting, recycling and irrigation projects, smart metering, public conservation projects and corporate sustainability reporting.

I have a proven track record in developing efficient, targeted water saving programs, implementing successful waste management initiatives and applying research to create effective sustainability projects. I am a dynamic and motivated team member with excellent analytical, interpersonal and problem management skills. In my current role as Senior Environment Scientist at Watercon I am responsible for overseeing research projects, managing a team of scientists and external contractors, analysing data and writing reports.

I am the President of the National Association for Water Conservation, an associate professor at the University of Overdale, and have had numerous articles published in the Water, Waste and Conservation Monthly.

I monitor developments in the industry closely and was interested to read about Envirotron’s recent Landsafe campaign which I see as one of the most innovative uses of resources of any recent campaign and is sure to bring about a significant change in Australia’s conservation outcomes.

I believe I have the experience, skills and attitude to make a substantial contribution to Envirotron’s projects. I look forward to an opportunity to discuss my past projects at an interview.

Yours sincerely
