An opportunity has arisen with our client, an expanding global multidisciplinary consultancy for an individual to join the team.

Our client is a leading global multi disciplinary with a reputation of delivering high value and complex solutions to clients. The environmental division is expanding and has an established trusted relationship with clients, delivering advisory work at a senior level.

Their UK business employs nearly 300 environmental staff based from a number of locations, and covers a breadth of consulting services structured around service areas including; Compliance, Transactions, Impact Assessment, Sustainability and Project Finance and Product Stewardship. The extensive client base includes global multinationals, local and central government and international institutions.

An exciting opening has arisen for a senior consultant to work within the South West.

Auditing candidates would be expected to be able to lead audits of a range of commercial and industrial facilities, including large and/or complicated industrial sites assessing compliance against both current and reasonably foreseeable environmental, and health & safety legislation and recognised best practice. The candidates will need to understand the differing requirements of due diligence assessments and full operational compliance audits.

Permitting candidates would be expected to have assisted clients by drafting permit applications to the Environment Agency (and related responsible agencies), scoped, commissioned and managed required related specialist studies and lead negotiations.
