The WA Energy & Climate Change Team is diverse and located across several of our UK offices.

The workload will largely entail undertaking climate change and sustainability assessments for Environmental Impact Assessments, carbon accounting for corporate audits in line with legislation and industry standards, and developing carbon management and climate resilience strategies for businesses. Where required, the candidate will also support the wider Energy Team in a variety of technical disciplines including, but not limited to, energy assessments, resource and constraint mapping, and production of planning and EIA reports.
