We are looking for someone with experience in EIA project management to join our established team in Glasgow or Edinburgh who have built a strong reputation for handling complex and market leading EIAs.
Working as part of the Company-wide team, you will be responsible for managing 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 across the UK and you will have a role in managing the review and production of the reports.
The role will include:
- Managing EIA projects including liaising with project team members, clients and external organisations and representing LUC at meetings and consultation events.
- Overseeing the production of Environmental Impact Assessment Reports (EIA-Rs).
- Managing our EIA Report/ES review work and reviewing draft review reports.
- Contributing to EIA tendering and business development activities.
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 £35k 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 be an experienced EIA project manager who has 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, with particular recent experience of infrastructure projects such as overhead electricity lines and renewable energy developments.
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.
In addition to EIA project management experience, you will ideally also have wider development planning experience and the confidence to engage with the design process for complex projects.
Membership at an appropriate level of the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Management (IEMA) and/or MRTPI 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.
