We have an exciting opportunity for a Land Quality Consultant to join
our London, Peterborough, Liverpool or Manchester office to provide
contaminated land and remediation expertise within the technical group.
You will assist in a variety of work, including office based activities
such as Phase I desk studies, interpretative reporting, risk assessments
and research or policy studies, and site based activities such as
undertaking and supervising Phase II Site Investigations,
gas & groundwater monitoring and supervision of remediation works.
There will be the opportunity for some travel and site work, mainly
within the UK but also potentially internationally.
