We are currently seeking a Senior Sustainability Consultant to work within our sustainability team at Howbery Park, Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The position is an immediate start.
Envision is a leading sustainability, energy and building services design consultancy that provides specialist support towards sustainability within the built environment. We were founded in 2012 by directors of a multi-disciplinary planning and engineering consultancy and have steadily grown into a well-established company. Unlike many sustainability consultancies that have developed as a ‘support service’ to larger practices, Envision specialises in providing end-to-end support to its real estate clients. We pride ourselves on fostering a flexible, creative and fun working environment.
We bring together a range of technical disciplines to advise clients on their ESG policies, to manage their real estate portfolio and develop sustainability and energy strategies for new and existing developments. We combine this with our expert team of building service engineers to deliver low carbon solutions for our clients.
As part of our sustainability offering, our services include the provision of a full range of environmental assessment methods for both new and existing developments, BREEAM (including In-Use), Home Quality Mark, CEEQUAL, WELL and Building with Nature. We also undertake Whole Life Cycle Assessments, which feeds into our strategies for achieving Net Zero.
We take pride in our pro-active approach, supporting our clients with close and tailored support. Our pragmatic and hands-on approach means that we are retained by the largest UK property funds, publicly listed developers as well as leading constructors.
This is an excellent opportunity for a senior sustainability consultant or experienced sustainability consultant looking to take the next step in their career. You will join our growing team to work on a diverse range of projects in the UK and internationally. The role is very wide ranging, working on ESG strategies, planning applications and live construction projects.
Working closely with colleagues of various engineering disciplines in other offices, you will take the lead on sustainability projects – developing concepts, reports and presenting to clients. You will ensure the successful delivery of innovative sustainable and low-carbon design solutions to quality standards and deadlines. You will receive continual support from senior members of staff, along with access to our in-house training programme allowing you to continue your professional development.
This role will enable you to have an impact across a variety of sectors such as Education, Commercial, Healthcare, Retail and Residential, and ensure that over time you have the opportunity to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy.
Educated to degree level in the field of sustainability and environmental science, you will have gained significant demonstrable experience in a sustainability consultancy role within the built environment.
The successful candidate should be highly motivated, possess excellent communication skills and look to develop their ongoing professional qualifications.
- 4 years’ experience in a similar sustainability role (although applications from exceptional candidates with less experience will also be considered).
- Experience of working on BREEAM assessments through to certification.
- BREEAM Assessor and/or BREEAM AP qualification.
- Knowledge and application of Life Cycle Assessment methodologies.
- Good communication/presentation skills.
- Excellent report writing skills.
- Understanding of client requirements/project objectives.
- Good knowledge of the sustainability related statutory legislation, standards, and drivers in the construction industry.
- Home Quality Mark.
- ESG strategies.
- Understanding of Part L & Dynamic Simulation Modelling.
- Hold a full UK driving licence.
Benefits: Company health insurance and pension, social events, flexible working.
