Environmental Compliance Manager

Job description

Allen & York are delighted to be working with one of the South East's busiest airports as they look to recruit an Environmental Compliance Manager to join their established and growing Sustainability Team and work closely with the Team and other stakeholders in the business in this very much operational role.


Reporting to the Senior Sustainability Manager, you will be responsible for all of the environmental compliance for the airport, liaise with the Environment Agency and water companies, together with other external stakeholders, as well as internal stakeholders. You'll be passionate about compliance, understand permitting and exemptions, in particular in relation to water as this is where a lot of the compliance issues lie. In addition, as you can imagine, air quality is another area you may have experience in and will be required to look at in this role, as well as waste, soil and sampling. You'll have an understanding of planning conditions related to water and there are ongoing construction projects (where consultants are employed) so you'll need to know what to flag.

You'll most likely have been working in an Environmental Management and/or compliance role on a large site, responsible for regulations and environmental compliance, you'll have applied for water permits and dealt with waste compliance and you'll have an understanding of planning conditions.

Based in Bedfordshire, you'll be required to be on site two to three times a week so you need to live within a commutable distance of the airport and, given the nature of the role, you'll be an excellent communicator, have strong technical expertise and work well both independently and as a Team.

So, if you tick the boxes and would like to find out more about the opportunity, please contact Katie Pereira at kpereira@allen-york.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
