We’re investing £2.5billion between now and 2021 that will reduce flood risk to 300,000 homes across the UK. It’s an exciting time and we need your help to ensure that this work is delivered with full attention to the environmental impact. Our National Environmental Assessment Service (NEAS) manages the environmental assessments and consents for the flood projects that the Agency builds. Joining NEAS as a Senior Environmental Project Manager you’ll play an important role in delivering positive outcomes for people and wildlife alike.

You will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of different technical areas of expertise, such as habitats regulations, planning or environmental design

We will support you in progressing your status within the professional institution of your choice. We are always looking at good practice from other sectors and so experience in the water industry is not essential, if you have valuable experience to offer.
