Exeter, Leeds, Solihull, Warrington, Welwyn Garden City, Worthing

We are looking to recruit 6 x Environmental Project Managers (EPMs) to join our National Environmental Assessment & Sustainability (NEAS) team.

We are seeking talented, enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our Team. If you are passionate about the environment, delivering positive outcomes and making a better place for people and wildlife then we’d love to hear from you. It’s an exciting time as we invest £5.4 billion over the next five years to reduce flood risk to homes and businesses across the UK. You can expect to work closely with other teams to deliver exceptional flood risk schemes through:

  • Ensuring that engineering projects are environmentally compliant
  • Screening, planning and co-ordinating the delivery of EIAs
  • Working with a variety of environmental stakeholders
  • Identifying environmental opportunities and delivering multiple benefits
  • Working with external suppliers and other specialists within integrated project teams
  • Championing the development and delivery of Sustainable, low carbon solutions

The team

Our National Environmental Assessment & Sustainability team (NEAS) works with the Flood and Coastal Risk Management teams to help protect against flooding and minimise the risks caused by any floods that do occur. The work we do directly and with others ensures our actions reduce flood risk and provide environmental and social benefits. NEAS work in integrated project teams, managing or supporting the delivery of environmental impact assessments (EIA) or strategic environmental assessments (SEA).

Experience/skills required

You’ll be involved in the appraisal and design of flood risk management schemes which will require experience in environmental assessment, Sustainability and a range of environmental legislation and policy. We’ll be looking for you to manage environmental risks down to acceptable levels as well as identifying and delivering environmental enhancements on the ground. You’ll need excellent communication skills and the ability to develop strong relationships with internal and external partners. You should have some experience in an environmental role and it is helpful to have project management skills too. If you can offer this and have a relevant degree or equivalent we welcome hearing from you. We will support you in progressing your status within the professional institution of your choice. We are always looking at good practice from other sectors and so experience in the water industry is not essential, if you have other valuable experience to offer.

Contact and additional information

Your base location will be the Hub office (locations listed above). However, due to Covid-19 restrictions for the safety of our staff the role will be initially home working.

You will need to hold a full UK driving licence. The roles require some travel and overnight stays.

Virtual interviews will be held in the fortnight commencing 14th September 2020.

Closing date: 16 August 2020.
