Job position – Advisor Water

NECTAERRA provides high-quality advice, research, training, and products in the field of hydrology, regenerative agriculture, and agroforestry. As an independent company, we strive for a positive impact on both society and the ecosystem.

We work for public and private clients at home and abroad, such as water boards, municipalities, engineering firms, farmers, NGOs, and research institutions.
