My client is looking for a Principal Geoenvironmental Consultant to join their team of geo-specialists. Duties will include general geoenvironmental consultancy activities on a variety of projects based throughout the UK.  A primary interest in the land quality, contamination assessment and waste management field is required, although the team offers integrated geotechnical and geoenvironmental services so some capability and interest in engineering geology and general ground investigation practice is valuable.
The existing team is based in Exeter however applications from the London or Birmingham areas are actively encouraged as much of the geoenvironmental project work derives from the London area and the Midlands.  Whatever the location some travelling can be expected with occasional short duration stays away.
The company is a multidisciplinary professional services provider and geoenvironmental team members work closely with our in-house geotechnical, ecology, drainage, flood risk, civil, waste and planning support colleagues.
Main Duties and Responsibilities
Duties will include general land development-related work, for example ground investigation scheduling and overseeing, Phase 1 and Phase 2 assessments, remedial strategy reports, verification work, due diligence reporting and Part 2A studies.  Familiarity with geochemical data assessment and contaminated land statistical methods is essential.

Leading technical and other work as required on assigned projects whilst ensuring high levels of safety, quality and environmental responsibility
Technical quality of own and team's work in accordance with good engineering practice, relevant standards, Codes of Practice, current design methods and Health & Safety legislation
