Stantec Consultant / Senior Consultant Environmental Permitting and Regulatory Compliance in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Redefine your personal best

As part of continued and ambitious UK growth, Stantec has identified opportunities to grow its teams across the UK, which specialises in Environmental Permitting and Regulatory Compliance. The role(s) could be based in any one of our UK offices. The team provides bespoke and expert advice and services to clients across water, energy, waste, resources, minerals, infrastructure and development sectors.

We guide clients through the consenting process under the Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) regime in England and Wales and equivalent in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our work includes initial feasibility and due diligence, consenting strategy/coordination and stakeholder liaison through to extensive operational compliance and closure support. We work closely with client teams, investors, regulators and legal experts.

No two projects are the same and our team advises across the spectrum of activities regulated under EPR regardless of sector, including: water activities; waste; industrial installations; power generation and combustion; chemicals; and radioactive activities. A significant area of growth is ‘industrial permitting’ which can often include complex regulatory approaches with multiple activities and interlinked regimes.

We also undertake a significant amount of work associated with preventing the generation of, using or managing wastes (soils/aggregates) from and in construction in support of major infrastructure, quarry restoration and development sectors. Our team is proud to have written major new industry guidance in this respect (CIRIA C809) and we remain at the fore of industry working groups associated with the wider soil resource and regulatory interlinkages with other sectors (e.g. bioresources).

We work across Stantec’s UK business closely collaborating with our fully in house multidisciplinary technical specialist teams (e.g. air quality; hydrogeology; noise/acoustics; process engineers; environmental auditing etc) together with wider teams focused on planning and EIA, environmental management, asset management and business consulting.

About you

You will have achieved an Honours Degree in Environmental/Earth Science or broader Environmental Management. You may currently work in environmental or engineering consultancy, directly for industry operators, or for the UK environmental regulator(s) (e.g. EA, NRW, SEPA or NIEA). Ideally, you will have accrued some experience and be actively working towards relevant professional accreditation/chartership (e.g. MCIWM, CEnv, MIEMA etc).

You may have specific experience in one particular area (e.g. Materials Management, Industrial Permitting, Waste etc) or a broader background. The role will also likely extend to wider environmental management and compliance advisory support to projects through planning, EIA and ongoing client operations. You should be willing to learn, be a good communicator and able to work in office based and remote teams. We are as much interested in your aptitude and willingness to grow with our team as we are your specific technical background.

Travel will be required between Stantec’s UK offices but also to attend client meetings, site visits and industry events (workshops, conferences, etc.) where these cannot be otherwise attended via remote means. Some overnight stays may be required as part of the role.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK at the time you start employment.
