Peak Associates Environmental Consultants provides a wide range of services, including sewage treatment design, flood risk assessments, SuDS design and contaminated land assessments. You can find out more about what we do here www.peak-associates.com

However, our essential mission in life is to study and resolve the environmental problems driven by environmental regulations, so the environment is safeguarded and our clients’ keep trading. Sometimes that’s simple and led by the science. Sometimes it’s more a function of dealing with difficult regulators. Which means you’ll need to be a good scientist and good communicator that can explain the science and solutions we design to those wonderful warm people who make up the UK regulatory sector!  

Our projects all tend to be multi-functional so, as long as you have around 4-years experience and a relevant first and ideally second degree in one of the areas listed below, we’d be interested in talking to you:    

  • Drainage experience, including the conceptual and detailed design of simple conventional private foul and surface water systems;
  • Experience in developing conceptual and design level sustainable drainage schemes (SuDS);
  • Experience with assessing loads and designing small sewage treatment plants, septic tanks and sewage works or strength and load studies for trade effluents;
  • Water Quality surveys and/or impact studies.
  • EA permitting applications or Environmental Assessments for planning applications.

The office lead also needs to have or want to develop; project management skills, including budget control, the ability to manage staff and external contractors/ clients and as we said those wonderful regulators that in the end say yes or no to the solutions we develop.  We would also expect the successful candidate to be proficient in writing technical reports, including the ability to accurately interpret data and produce specifications.

We would also welcome applications from candidates in the regulatory or public sector who would like a change of perspective.

So, to recap; candidates should have a good first degree in a relevant subject, ideally environmental science, civil engineering, or geography. An MSc in a related field would also be a distinct advantage. Applicants must also hold a full driving licence as travel around the UK will be essential.

Salary is negotiable for the right candidate and an option of a share buy in scheme will be offered to the successful candidate. The benefits package will therefore be paid in both salary and dividends from profits. As a guide the basic salary without share benefits will be circa £30-£35K.  We also offer flexible working hours, a Company Pension and car allowance scheme, although where possible we do travel by train or public transport. 

If you would like to know more about the type of work and projects that Peak Associates are involved with, the offer of equity in the business and our plans for growth in the next five years please visit our website at www.peak-associates.com or contact our head office on 01925 491011.

Please e-mail your CV and covering letter to clarejones@peak-associates.com by 15th October 2019.

Please be aware that, due to the large volume of applications, should you not hear from us in up to 3 weeks after the closing date; please assume your application has been unsuccessful. Should this be the case then the information supplied may still be retained for use in connection with future vacancies.
