Fyfe Boosts Environmental Workforce

July 10, 2013

Over the last month Fyfe has become a significant environmental consultancy group after recruiting a substantial proportion of the workforce of environmental management group OTEK Australia Pty Ltd. OTEK, which is based in Melbourne and has offices in all mainland states, was placed in Administration earlier last month and its staff members retrenched.


Fyfe has now recruited over 12 of the former employees, significantly boosting its own environmental services capacity. The influx of employees has also enabled Fyfe to open new offices in Sydney and Melbourne where it has not previously been represented.


Earlier in 2013 Fyfe established an environmental division offering services ranging from environmental audits to the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements. The recruitment of the former OTEK staff now enables a significant boost to the range and level of environmental services on offer. The new employees include hydrologists, geologists, environmental auditors and the like, and provide the ability to offer a complete range of services covering the core services of an environmental business; i.e. environmental impact assessments and statements, environmental planning and management, contamination remediation (soil & water), environmental engineering and auditing.
