Why You Should Apply Now:

A few years ago you stumbled upon surveying by accident. However you quickly discovered that you love the variety of office and field work and you've decided you're going to make a real career out of it.

Since then, you've been working hard to develop your knowledge, skills and technical acumen as a junior surveyor. However, it's difficult to breakthrough to the next level unless you have the complete support of your workplace and one-on-one mentoring by a senior surveyor who has a personal and vested interest in seeing you succeed.

The larger firms have too many levels between their senior and junior staff which means if you can find a mentor, they're neither senior nor have a personal or vested interest in seeing you succeed. As a result, you often feel like you're trying to go it alone.

If you have ambition to be your best and become a major player within an exciting firm, your best chance for support and advancement is to ride the wave upwards within a growing company.

If you've been waiting for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for career advancement to present itself, this is it!

This is NOT a cookie-cutter position that's available to every Survey Technician. We're looking for the next generation of Hillocc leadership and we want the best!

So apply now before word spreads and competition increases. We look forward to talking with you about how you can become the newest member of the Hillocc team.
