Paid • Full Time • Permanent

Reference: 3825

Sectors: water & hydrology

Closing date: Tuesday, 31 January 2017

We’re investing £2.5 billion between now and 2021 that will reduce flood risk to 300,000 homes across the UK. It’s an exciting time and we need your help to ensure that this work is delivered with full attention to the environmental impact.

Our National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS) manages the environmental assessments and consents for the flood projects that the Agency builds. Joining the team as an Environmental Project Manager, you’ll play an important role in delivering positive outcomes for people and wildlife alike.

The role draws upon a diverse range of skills. Working closely with other teams, you will be involved in:

  • Ensuring that engineering projects are environmentally compliant
  • Screening, planning and co-ordinating the delivery of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs)
  • Working with a variety of environmental stakeholders
  • Identifying environmental opportunities and delivering multiple benefits
  • Working with external suppliers and other Environment Agency specialists within integrated project teams
  • Strategic Environmental Assessment of our strategies and plans

Experience/skills required

You'll have excellent communication skills and the ability to develop strong relationships with internal and external partners.

For the Grade 4 EPM role, you must have an environmental background and a relevant degree (or equivalent) and are working towards a relevant professional qualification such as Associate or Practitioner IEMA.

We are always looking at good practice from other sectors and so experience in the water industry is not essential, if you have valuable experience to offer.
