Application closing date: 30 May 2022

Did you know that Australia creates more hazardous waste per capita than any country in the world?
That is a big problem for all of us.
At Tellus Holdings Ltd, you can become part of a team that offers the solution for us now, for our future generations and our planet.
Tellus is an environmental services company that is helping clean up Australia by offering geological repositories that provide waste storage, recyclable product recovery and permanent isolation for hazardous materials.
Tellus operates Australia’s first commercial geological repository in Western Australia and has exciting national expansion plans underway.
To support our operations, we are expanding our Radiological team and looking for a highly motivational, passionate, and authentic leader who believes in our mission and wants to make Australia a cleaner and safer place to live.
Reporting to our Chief Operating Officer, you will lead our Radiological Services team by:

  • Managing our radiological regulatory relations, compliance and reporting requirements.
  • Managing the development and delivery of all radiological safety and protection activities, training and awareness programs, including all health and environmental monitoring, as Radiation Safety Officer.
  • Implementing and continuously improving our radiological Safety Case, both at Sandy Ridge and throughout the business.
    Managing our radiological waste characterization, verification, storage, and disposal (including treatment) processes by working closely with our site teams.
  • Managing the commercialization of our radiological waste services, including building our credibility throughout the industry and supporting into our Business Development and Sales team.
  •  Providing advice and oversight of our radiological waste acceptance and logistics processes.
  • Managing compliance with surface ventilation requirements, including occupational hygiene monitoring and reporting.
  • Managing the requirements for responding to any potential radiological emergencies, including training of the emergency response teams.

At Tellus, you will find:

  •  An entrepreneurial culture, where you are surrounded by experienced and driven scientific and operational teams from many different industries and experiences, who have joined Tellus because they know Australia needs them.
  • A company that values what you bring to the table – especially through your passion and dedication to our mission.
  • A team of people that strongly believes that you can be “green” and work in waste, cares deeply about cleaning up the environment, cares for each other and is determined to together enjoy the journey we are on. -A great opportunity to grow with us, including having equity in the business.
  • Leaders who understand that flexibility and life balance is important – that having a job should never compromise spending time with family, friends and personal health and wellbeing.
  • You will have the platform to showcase your experience and knowledge, including your understanding of radiological risk, mitigations, and opportunities at all levels of our business.
  • You will be trusted, relied upon (you do what you say you will do) and have credibility in what you can offer.
  • You can demonstrate your relationship building skills to grow genuine long-lasting connections, where people want to grab a coffee, a kombucha or a beer with you.
  • You can be the entrepreneur you were born to be. No-one in Australia has done what we’re doing, so you will have permission to be creative, think outside the box and offer new thought and ideas.
  • We all care about climate change… and want to do something about it.
