Description

Hi! My name is Felicity, and I am a Surveyor.

Never in a million years did I think that I would be working on a construction site, much less a seafaring vessel. Prior to becoming a surveyor, I was a stage manager working on festivals and small theatre shows. Many of the soft skills like communication and management that I learnt while working in the Arts have carried across to my career as a surveyor. After working for a bit as a stage and event manager and getting frustrated with the continual cycle of applying for short contract work, the permanent positions were few, I left with no real idea of what I wanted to do. After being encouraged by my father to try surveying, I took an absolute leap of faith and moved to Melbourne to try it. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Sciences – Surveying at RMIT in Melbourne.

While I was completing my degree, I was fortunate enough to work with Veris on the West Gate Tunnel Project and the Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project as an Undergraduate Engineering Surveyor where I was able to consolidate my learning from uni and from the experienced people around me. From there, I moved back to Adelaide to begin working as a Graduate Hydrographic Surveyor for Precision Hydrographic Services. As a surveyor, I work with many other teams including trades, construction managers, port managers, spatial analysts, archaeologists and environmental scientists to name a few. Our work is varied and challenging with no two days ever the same.
