Job Responsibilities

Due to winning a number of exciting and complex projects and coupled with a strong baseload of work, opportunities have arisen for two junior level Environmental Scientists/Engineers to join the UK & Ireland Environmental Management and Site Characterisation & Remediation Teams, to be based out of Nottingham or Leeds.

We are also seeking a number of temporary staff to join us for a few weeks in September and October in the same locations.

These roles would suit recent graduates with a background and interest in environmental science. Persons with a limited amount of experience will also be welcome to apply.

For the ongoing roles the key responsibilities will combine both office and site-based duties in the field of environmental management (Environmental permitting, Environmental (and H&S) compliance and regulatory support, EIA, environmental due diligence, water and air quality, support to the wider key service areas) and site characterisation (to include environmental investigation, designing desk-based assessments and site investigations for characterisation and assessment of land quality in relation to soil, ground gas and groundwater).

The temporary roles will be office based.

We are looking for strong communicators, who have excellent technical writing skills as well as strong interpersonal skills. You will have a minimum of a BSc or BEng in a relevant science discipline (e.g. Geology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Environmental Geology, Hydrogeology or similar)

As there will be a requirement to travel (except for the temporary roles) it is essential that you hold a full UK driving licence and be able to travel and work away from home both in the UK and overseas.

This job description describes the principal purpose and main elements of the job. It is a guide to the nature of the main duties as they currently exist but it is not intended as a wholly comprehensive or permanent schedule of tasks. The post holder is expected to work flexibly and respond positively to changing business needs.

The successful candidate will possess the following skills and attributes:

* BSc or BEng in a science subject (e.g. geology, chemistry, hydrogeology, environmental science, environmental geology, or similar);
