About Us:

Birmingham Airport serves over 140 destinations via 50 airlines and is the UK's third largest Airport outside the south-east and the UK's seventh largest overall. We are experiencing record growth and currently handle nearly 13 million passengers a year. As a result we are continuing to invest in significant new projects to prepare for future passenger and airline growth.

It is widely recognised that Birmingham Airport already benefits from some of the best transport provision at any UK airport, and with the planned High Speed 2 line to directly connect via a dedicated people mover to the Airport terminal, this accessibility is only set to improve. The coming years therefore represent a huge opportunity for Birmingham Airport to grow further.

An employer to over 9000 people on site, we are also a major contributor to the West Midlands' economy supporting economic growth and prosperity for the region and beyond.

About the role:

We’re looking for an Environment Executive to join our Sustainability team; someone with initiative and energy who can develop their skills to take on a varied brief.

Reporting to the Environment Manager, you’ll be part of a team that helps maintain and enhance Birmingham Airport’s environmental credentials and compliance.  You will be responsible for implementing Birmingham Airport’s strategic environmental mitigation schemes, including the Environmental Management System, Air Quality Management and the Airport’s Noise Action Plan. 

You will also understand the value of community relations and work to maintain an open dialogue with our neighbours, to build trust and understanding of each other's views. You will have the confidence in dealing with customers over the telephone, face to face and in writing and be able to provide clear, persuasive communication, interpersonal and influencing skills. 

The person:

We’re looking for a professional with the right skills, experience and initiative to excel in this position. We need someone that can think logically, assess risk and apply a pragmatic approach to balancing legislative requirements with operational and business needs. If you want to be part of a dynamic environment, we’re looking for someone who is motivated and can develop their skills to take on a varied brief.

The world of aviation is not solely 9 to 5, Monday to Friday; so nor is the Team.

We’re asking a lot and we know there will be a lot more to learn in return, we offer an unbeatable opportunity to develop a career and professional reputation by helping to protect and promote ours.  This is a specialist Airport role and full training will be provided.  If you’re ready for the challenge, please read the job description and person specification and apply by sending your CV with an expression of interest outlining why you feel you would be the best fit for this role.
