We work for a variety of customers, such as the European Commission, international institutions / development banks and UK Government Departments and Agencies, as well as for industry trade associations and individual companies. Our projects help to directly influence the development and improvement of environmental policies in the UK, EU and beyond.

We would also consider appointing at other grades, dependent on skills and experience.
