Wardell Armstrong’s Air Quality team forms a constituent part of the Acoustics and Air Quality service area. The team is spread across four regional offices including Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Bolton, Stoke and Cardiff. Our air quality consultants work on a wide range of projects throughout the UK and abroad.
We currently have a position available in the Air Quality team and we would be interested to hear from candidates up to Principal level. Based in our Newcastle-upon-Tyne office you will work as an air quality specialist, within the Acoustics and Air Quality team. You will be involved in the assessment of air quality and odour for various types of projects across all of our business sectors from Waste Management Facilities, through Land and Property, Mining and Minerals, Renewable Energy to Transportation Schemes.
You will undertake air quality modelling and assessment works and be involved from the start to the completion of projects liaising with clients, other team members, employees across the company and third parties such as local authorities, technology providers and transport consultants throughout the process.
You will play an integral part in the growth of the team. This will include the management and development of junior consultants, and you will be encouraged to develop business for yourself and the team. The Firm will support your own development and progression within the business.
As the successful applicant you will have at least 4 years’ experience, ideally within an environmental consultancy, working in the field of air quality. However, the position is flexible, and it could equally suit a more senior candidate. You will need experience of air quality modeling to be a competent air quality modeller, including experience of using ADMS Roads and AERMOD. Experience of odour modelling, as well as use of ADMS 5, is desirable. You will also need excellent report writing skills and experience of preparing environmental statements and environmental permitting reports. A sound knowledge of air quality legislation and assessment procedures is important. Ideally you will also have experience of client liaison and you will have excellent organisational and numerical skills with experience of managing your own workload. Experience of consulting with local authorities and other regulators is also required.
Experience of undertaking air quality neutral assessments, designated habitat site assessments, odour surveys and/or air quality monitoring campaigns would also be beneficial.
It is essential that you are educated to degree level (or equivalent) with a first degree and/or masters qualification in Environmental Sciences (or similar) or Air Quality.
As we work throughout the UK a full driving licence and access to a vehicle is required.
