Why Ethos Urban?
The business of creating a better urban experience is a complex one. It requires patience, diligence, intelligence and perhaps most importantly, a passion for making a difference to our experience of urban life. For over 30 years our people have worked in partnership with the public and private sectors to provide them with the momentum to realise their ambitions for better places, communities and cities.
What we do and the way that we do it is unique. We view each project as a complex puzzle that requires different perspectives and alternative angles to solve it. At Ethos Urban, no one individual ever has the answer. It’s only when we bring people with different specialisations from different teams that we can see the full picture and then the way forward. We call it collective intelligence.
We have a vibrant, enthusiastic and highly skilled team of professionals that love what they do and who get excited about planning and development. As a result, at Ethos Urban you will have opportunities to work on the most exciting city shaping projects on offer and with the most high-profile clients in the industry.
We continue to hire great people with a diversity of skills, experience and backgrounds. This includes people with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, women, people identifying as LGBTIQ+, culturally and linguistically diverse people, carers and other diversity groups. We encourage applicants from any background to apply to join Ethos Urban!
