CIRIA is an industry-focussed body committed to delivering performance improvement in the construction and related sectors, through a range of knowledge-transfer activities.

Effective engagement underpins our programme helping us to understand and respond to the challenges faced by the industry, its clients and suppliers. For identified challenges we define desired outcomes and secure the funding and resources to deliver a programme of activities to achieve these. Programmes are then delivered by project managers working with an appointed specialist, and liaising with stakeholders with peer review, throughout. Project managers’ portfolios can span a wide area of activities and sectors, which requires a flexible approach.

We are looking for an individual to work on our sustainability programme. Initial areas of work will include guidance on addressing archaeological issues during construction, well-being on site and materials resource optimisation and environmental good practice on site. However, the successful candidate will also have an opportunity to work on other sustainability topics including biodiversity, green infrastructure and contaminated land.

These roles will provide early career professionals with an exceptional opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of key sustainability issues facing the construction industry and its wide range of clients and stakeholders.

We are seeking candidates with at least 3 years’ experience in a relevant role focussing on sustainability and the built environment where good communication, strong team work and organisational skills were required.
