Why Work For Us

If you are looking to join a dynamic, diverse team that offers great benefits and a chance to expand your professional skills, Neel-Schaffer has a spot for you.

Neel-Schaffer believes in taking care of its clients – and its employees. It’s a culture instilled when Gorman Schaffer and Hibbett Neel, PE, founded the firm in 1983, and one still very much in place today.

The firm’s goal has always been to improve the quality of life by providing first-class services to the many communities in which our employees work and live. We encourage employees to be a part of those communities and to give back whenever possible. In turn, we have treated our employees fairly while creating an atmosphere that has helped Neel-Schaffer grow into one of the largest privately owned engineering and consulting firms in the Southeast.

Neel-Schaffer’s engineers, scientists, geologists, biologists, planners, and design technicians use cutting-edge technology in a professional, energetic, team-oriented environment to complete a wide array of projects across a multitude of disciplines. We support employee attendance at job-related conferences and seminars, and Neel-Schaffer helps sponsor industry conferences and seminars across the South.

Mr. Neel, who serves as CEO and President, is a strong believer in hiring quality employees and letting them get the job done: “One of the main reasons this company has done so well,” he said, “is because of the great people we have.”
