Careers in Sustainability

You’ll solve the problems that matter to a complex, urbanising and resource scarce world.

Shape a more sustainable future

We truly believe sustainability matters, and it sits at the heart of everything we do. It’s our heritage, our responsibility and we’re tackling the problems that matter. We want people who share our passion, who are not scared to try new things, and who adapt and move quickly. Helping to positively shape the impacts of our client’s projects, you’ll find work that is challenging and rewarding. The time is now.

From our work on the built and natural environment to advising governments and world leading organisations, we tackle some of the most pressing environmental and social challenges. We walk the walk with our own commitments and we’re well placed to deliver.

We're leading the way

  • Proud members of organisations committed to a sustainability. We’ve been publicly reporting on our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions since 2008 and are proud members of the CDP, the UK Green Building Council; UN Race to Zero, Business Ambition for 1.5°C, and the UK’s Pledge to Net Zero for the environmental services sector. 
  • Recognised climate leaders. Our Consulting business is recognised as a leader in climate change and energy consultancy services (Environment Analyst and ICE), and the business was recently awarded the Financial Times’ European Climate Leaders and FTSE4Good designations.
  • Supporting our clients on the path to net-zero. As well as our own actions across biodiversity, climate change, natural capital, and the built environment to corporate ESG advisory and social value, we are supporting a rapidly growing number of clients with their own sustainability journeys. Tackling the problems that really matter.

Passion for change

We need people who share our passion on solving the problems that matter. People who believe they can shape a more sustainable future, who build lasting relationships, and who embrace new ways of working. And where you’ll be supported every step of the way.

Careers to help fight climate change

Inspired by the goals of COP, our Climate Careers Zone is a virtual learning experience that brings the future of our towns and cities to life.

Aimed at 12-16-year-olds who feel they are facing an uncertain future, the zone explores how the built environment will need to adapt to climate change and showcases some of the skills and professions needed to help us achieve climate goals.

There’s never been such a pressing time and we’re inspiring the next generation.
