acoustic engineer consultant

The right decision for Lucy

I joined Resonate Consultants four and a half years ago because I wanted to grow my technical experience and knowledge and enter a company where the leadership was genuinely engaged and actually listened to all employees. With almost 12 years of career experience in the industry both in the UK and here in Australia, I am often reminded that I made the right decision to choose Resonate Consultants when a new procedure or acoustics innovation project comes to fruition from ideas and suggestions from the staff.

acoustic engineer consultantResonate Consultants provides and contributes to memberships for Australian Acoustical Society (AAS), Association of Australasian Acoustical Consultants (AAAC) and Women in Design and Construction (WIDAC), which I enjoy collaborating with and attending events with others in our industry. These are great opportunities for me to learn what others are doing and what is working. It also highlights how well Resonate Consultants are investing in their staff.

During my time at this award-winning firm, I have been actively involved with leadership and mentoring, and, along with other team members, I encourage wellness in all our offices. Resonate offer great wellness and health benefits such as yearly allowances to ‘sharpen the saw’ which usually goes towards my netball club fees or sporting equipment to help keep me healthy and fit.

Personally, I was pleased to see our acoustic consulting firm recently bring in the paid parental leave scheme. This aligns with the company values and shows that all staff are valued. Resonate Consultants also supports flexible working conditions, including working part-time, from home and flexible hours. This makes a real difference to our productivity and enthusiasm for work.

It has been truly encouraging to see female influence and leadership through all aspects of business operations— from board level to our CEO to graduates

It has been truly encouraging to see female influence and leadership through all aspects of business operations— from board level to our CEO to graduates— as it inspires other female colleagues to contribute and consider their own career aspirations. This approach seems to be attracting female graduate engineering students into our industry, with three female graduates appointed to roles in the last 12 months. This is an exciting indication of how the industry, and our organisation, is evolving to be more inclusive and supportive for women.

As demonstrated by our recent NAWIC SA Crystal Vision award win, we are genuinely a business that values and celebrates our staff, and I’m proud to be an employee. And believe you will be too.
