About the role
Working alongside experienced hydrologists, you will be required to prepare flood risk assessments and outline Sustainable Drainage (SuDS) designs for a range of projects principally in the built environment, minerals and power sectors. Duties will also include undertaking field-based work, preparing water chapters for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Reports and Environmental Appraisals.
Being able to develop good client relationships and communicate with a wide range of stakeholders (both externally and internally) is an essential aspect of the role. This also brings an opportunity for you to grow your profile and to contribute to increasing the pipeline of work in the region.
This role will involve projects and site investigations across the UK, and therefore may include infrequent periods working away from home for several days at a time.
