Wetlands and Due Diligence Professional – Charlotte or Raleigh

Hart & Hickman is seeking a consulting professional with more than 2 years of dual-role skills in due diligence and wetlands work, for either our Charlotte of Raleigh office.  Hart & Hickman’s due diligence work is particularly interesting & professionally challenging because many of our due diligence clients are also Brownfield developers.  Consequently, our due diligence services often involve complex sites that move quickly through Phase I efforts to Phase II efforts, vapor intrusion assessment, and remediation.  Similarly, our wetlands projects often involve delineation followed by jurisdictional determinations, 401/404 Nationwide and Individual permit applications, NC buffer rule permitting, and developing wetlands permitting strategies.

We offer a vibrant work place with enthusiastic environmental professionals who love the outdoors, interesting projects, and excellent technical & leadership training programs, and mentoring programs to achieve your career development goals.  We are building an empowered and motivated team providing smarter environmental solutions for our clients and improving the communities in which we work.  Training as an environmental professional at Hart & Hickman will provide opportunities for you to observe, learn, practice and demonstrate your skills as you grow in your career.   

If you are looking for a career growth opportunity in a fast paced environment, this may be a great fit for you.  This position offers rapid growth in technical expertise, technical writing, project management responsibilities, and direct client interaction. We develop quality consultants.  Successfully serving in this position will be a springboard for promotion and other progressive career opportunities within the firm.   

You are a great fit if you have a BS or MS degree in an appropriate technical discipline, at least 2 years of progressive consulting experience, have conducted more than 25 Phase I ESAs, 10 Phase II ESAs, and 25 wetland delineation projects.  If that describes you and you want to become an exceptional environmental consultant, we are excited to learn more about your experience and goals.
