Air Quality Consultant (Bristol or London) - Expression of Interest

Redefine your personal best

At Stantec we support our clients in delivering sustainable and desirable developments through promoting our ethos of 'designing with communities in mind' and 'Places first' by providing insight at the initial conceptual stage of developments to ensure air quality positive design measures are embedded to minimise generation and exposure to air pollution (outdoor and indoor).

The Air Quality team undertakes a wide range of studies across the UK throughout the development control process (i.e. in support of site promotion, input to planning application, condition discharge) for all scales and types of development. We also undertake detailed studies in support of Environmental Permit applications in the power, water, industry, minerals and waste sectors.

As an ambitious and progressive business, we're interested in speaking with experienced Air Quality professionals based in the Bristol or London areas. We would encourage you to get in touch if you are thinking of a move, and even if we don't have an immediate role for you now, we will keep in touch until we do, so either way we would love to hear from you.

You will already have experience in undertaking air quality impact assessments involving road traffic, combustion and odour emissions using air quality dispersion modelling software and monitoring programs to inform report writing and contribute to Environmental Statement preparation.
