Growth is firmly on the agenda and there are exciting times ahead for Hampshire County Council’s Environmental Impact Assessment team.

We are part of a large, integrated, multi-disciplinary team offering a range of specialist environmental services to the County Council and other public authorities. We work closely with Engineering Consultancy, HCC’s in-house engineering specialists, supporting the delivery of a vast range of infrastructure projects across Hampshire and beyond by matching a commercial sector approach to a public sector brief.

Reporting to the EIA Project Manager this role will be responsible for supporting the delivery of Environmental Impact Assessments and other related environmental assessments; for infrastructure projects both for internal and external customers and clients to ensure development is compliant with environmental regulations and legislation.

We are looking for a candidate who can help prepare consent applications for development which require EIA or other types of environmental assessment, offer advice on EIA best practice, and can undertake reviews of Environmental Statements.

This post is directly funded by the income generated from work for internal and external clients. Therefore you will require a high degree of commercial acumen, the ability to build and develop existing business relationships, and to grow new areas of work for the Environmental Services team across a portfolio of traded services. This will be a challenging role for a highly motivated, proactive individual with a strong work ethic, flexible attitude and the ability to confidently engage with a wide range of contacts at all levels.

Our values:

We’re looking to build a diverse, complementary team and would encourage those with an EIA / Environmental Consultancy background to apply. Above all we are seeking to recruit people who share our commitment to and passion for our values and are able to demonstrate how they have put these values into practice in their work – could this be you?

  • Making a difference
  • Working Together
  • Ambitious to Improve
  • Commitment to Quality

 You’ll play a key role in the Economy, Transport and Environment department. We are focused on moving and shaping a prosperous and sustainable Hampshire. We deliver place-based services including investing in and managing our waste, highways and transport infrastructure; managing the environment; leading on climate change; and supporting sustainable economic growth.

Hampshire County Council is a flexible employer interested in making the most of your skills and offers a great work life balance.

Whilst this role is predominately office based (Winchester, Hampshire) you may be expected to attend some external meetings at other locations. All Hampshire County Council Staff are following current government guidelines around homeworking where possible. It is intended that when it is safe to do so, we will return to a blend of office and homeworking in the future.
