Position title
Graduate Sustainability Consultant - Built Environment

Do you have an interest in sustainability, together with a methodical approach? Enjoy balancing different projects? This opportunity could be ideal for you...

This environmental legislation consultancy works with businesses across a range of sectors, and tries to make real change environmentally on a daily basis. They audit construction designs and buildings to assess how sustainable they are.

They have a very good record of employing graduates. It’s a friendly, laid-back team with a mix of ages and backgrounds. They are also highly professional and technically focused.

The role is varied, and you will be involved in loads of sustainability related projects. For example:

  • BREEAM assessments, which are effectively the project management of the environmental aspects of construction.
  • SAP (standard assessment procedure) which is the methodology used  to assess and compare the energy and environmental performance of buildings, and provides accurate and reliable assessments that are needed to underpin energy and environmental policy initiatives.
  • Life Cycle Assessments, which measure the environmental impact of buildings.

And lots of other areas, including: Low and Zero Carbon Feasibility Studies (i.e. Renewables); Energy Performance Certificates; Home Quality Mark; DREAM; CEEQUAL; Thermal performance; Part L Compliance; IES modelling and analysis; Energy and Carbon Calculations. And much more.

So, plenty to be getting on with. Full training will be provided, though some knowledge of any of the above would be ideal.

You will also be providing sustainability related advice, including where improvements can be made so assessments will be passed. This will include report writing, and communicating with clients, architects, engineers and contractors.

You will be working on a range of projects, and completing assessments-  so excellent attention to detail is needed.

The business can offer years of career progression and technical development that will challenge and inspire you. You will quickly be given responsibility to manage your own work and time, with the support of friendly and knowledgeable team members.

In terms of degree type, something construction or architecture or project management related would be ideal. Or some engineering degrees, for example civil or mechanical. Maybe something environmental or geography based, but please note that the role relates to buildings, so you should have an interest in the built environment side of sustainability,

You should have lateral thinking and problem solving skills, with the ability to provide a fast and clear response to complex issues.

The office is just outside Bristol, but also near to the Severn Bridge so is commutable from areas around Newport. And possibly Gloucester and Swindon if you have your own transport.

There is great access to local amenities. Space for internal bike storage and close to car parking and a bus stop.

There are two vacancies, with a start date of July or September.
