About the role:
We are looking for someone who wants to take their next step up to EIA Project Management, joining an established team who have built a strong reputation for handling complex and market leading EIAs. The post will be based at our Glasgow office, although candidates for the Edinburgh office will also be considered.
Working as part of the Company-wide team, you will be responsible for providing support on EIA projects, which currently include, but are not limited to, wind energy developments, electricity transmission infrastructure, housing & mixed use development and other land development projects. LUC also regularly undertakes independent EIA review work and you will have a role to play in supporting this.
The role will include:
- Providing day-to-day support to our EIA project managers, including liaising with other project team members, attending meetings and recording/tracking key project actions.
- Drafting text for EIA Reports/Environmental Statements (ESs).
- Co-ordinating our EIA Report/ES review work and drafting review reports.
Our ambitious growth plans provide opportunities for all our staff to grow and develop.
We are registrants of IEMA’s EIA Quality Mark Scheme.
Salary circa £25,000 FTE.
We are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements for this role, including part time working (minimum 30 hours per week) core hours and a degree of location flexibility.
You will have prior EIA project management experience, in a support role, and will have worked previously in a consultancy, with both public and private sector clients. Ideally, your experience will span a number of market sectors in which LUC is engaged.
You will have a good degree in a relevant discipline, i.e. planning, geography, or an environmental science field and preferably will have completed a post-graduate qualification in, or covering, Environmental Impact Assessment.
Membership at an appropriate level of the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Management (IEMA) is desirable but not essential as the candidate can work towards membership with LUC.
Candidates must have good organisational skills, with the ability to manage tasks and time, using initiative. Also important for this role are excellent communication and report writing skills, and the ability to build effective relationships with colleagues and clients.
