We are appointed advisors to numerous blue-chip companies, private equity funds and lenders.

We are at the leading edge of a number of areas of environmental policy which are critical in the eyes of governments, and we punch well above our weight in terms of influence on public and private sector clients alike.

These may involve supporting local authorities in developing carbon baselines and decarbonisation plans, working with businesses to quantify the environmental impact of their products and to reduce their carbon footprint, or supporting national or supranational governmental bodies to develop emissions reduction policies.

You will be flexible with a strong work ethic and feel comfortable simultaneously leading and delivering a number of technical projects and bids under pressure.
