The post holder will need to be an efficient worker and enjoy the challenge of a growth-orientated environment.  The candidate must be able to work in a team and independently.  The role will require close working with members of the various environmental teams across the UK and in Europe, as well as with staff across other Business Lines.  They must contribute proactively to ensure consulting services are consistently delivered to the highest standards, meeting and exceeding clients’ needs.

You will be expected to provide robust advice to other members of the HaskoningDHV team, be able to individually develop your own leads and promote rewarding business development, and assist in the smooth running and continued successful development of the team.

A key function of this role is the further development of the skills, capabilities and profile of the Royal HaskoningDHV air quality  practice, working with the wider Environment Group leadership team and other senior members of the group.
