About us

If you’re part of the Environment Agency (EA), you’re part of the solution. Working with us means protecting and improving the environment and tackling issues of national importance. We’re based across England, and our responsibilities span industry regulation, flood defences, land contamination, water quality, fisheries and conservation. Such broad scope of work calls for diverse, multi-skilled teams. Together, we’ll promote sustainable growth, tackle climate change and secure a better future for everyone.


Your role with us

From Hinkley Point C to the Lower Thames Crossing, we provide specialist advice on Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs). Joining our national team of permitting officers, you’ll work across the interface between planning and permitting, providing statutory advice and helping to accelerate key infrastructure while protecting the environment. In particular, you will offer ongoing training and support to permitting officers in relation to national infrastructure projects and be the central point of contact for permit enquiries from area planning officers. You will also support technical experts in making group decisions at pace.

What do I need?

You will have a good understanding of the NSIP planning process and be able to convey complex information to others in a training context. While permitting knowledge would be helpful, you will be supported by a team of senior permitting officers. You must be well organised and able to learn and adapt to new working practices easily. You will need:

  • Knowledge of relevant environmental regulations
  • An ability to take decisions, solve problems and achieve results
  • Good communication, relationship-building and team-working skills
  • Skills in influencing others and facilitating collective decision-making

    What’s in it for you?

    You’ll benefit from a culture that embraces difference and includes everyone, where you’ll feel supported and trusted to do the right thing. We’ll invest in you and allow you to grow and shape your career. What’s more, you’ll have access to our great benefits package including:

  • A competitive salary of £37,462
  • 25 days holiday + 8 bank holidays
  • Great career opportunities
  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave scheme
  • A range of flexible working options

    As an organisation we strive to reflect the communities we serve, to achieve this we welcome applications from all backgrounds regardless of race, sexual orientation, and religion. We also welcome applications for part-time hours.
