Background to the opportunity 

ITPEnergised is a client-focused consultancy, providing project management, feasibility assessment and environmental and energy services to a range of sectors, including onshore and offshore renewables, urban development and infrastructure, industrial & manufacturing, and oil & gas (energy transition).

As part of our ongoing development, we are now seeking to complement our Geology & Peat team with geology and hydrogeology consultants, from Graduate to Senior Consultant grades. Working with our existing team of environmental consultants, you will support, manage, and deliver committed projects and contribute to the development of ITPEnergised’s related offering, commensurate to your grade and experience. This is a great opportunity to support the growth of an exciting consulting business working alongside a highly experienced team.

We are primarily interested in candidates with experience undertaking geological and hydrogeological assessment as part of EIA and pre-construction activities.

We are looking for people to join our team ranging from Graduate (ideally with some industry experience for example summer placements or internships) to Senior Consultant level.

Duties and responsibilities

Depending on your experience and skill set, your roles and areas of focus would entail:

  • Undertaking peat depth and condition surveys on a range of development sites (predominately onshore wind farms and transmission routes).
  • Developing health & safety plans to cover field work tasks.
  • Contributing to the preparation of EIA Report chapters (Geology, Peat, Hydrology and Hydrogeology) and Technical Appendices (Peat Landslide Hazard and Risk Assessment, Peat Management Plans, Carbon balance, GWDTE assessment etc.) across a range of developments.
  • Contributing to the preparation of technical reports including geotechnical/geo-environmental appraisals, coal mining risk assessments and peatland restoration plans.
  • Leading or supporting on feasibility/constraints studies for prospective developments.
  • Preparation of scopes of work and costs for input to fee proposals.
  • Project Management.
  • As the business requires, assist in delivery of other related environmental assessments, commensurate with experience and technical understanding including hydrological, hydrogeological, and ecological.
  • Contribution to business development appropriate to your grade and experience, including initiating and participating in client meetings, networking events, conferences, and seminars.
  • Mentoring responsibilities for junior staff on a project level or in wider context (as appropriate depending on grade).

We offer flexible working options to suit domestic arrangements. Your role will ordinarily require occasional travel to our other office locations, clients’ offices and sites. This may include staying away from home during periods of fieldwork around the UK (generally ranging from 1 day to up to 1 week).

  • BSc degree level qualification or equivalent in geology, earth science or similar.
  • Relevant postgraduate qualification and membership/Chartered status (or working towards) of a relevant institution (CGeol, CIWEM or similar) would be advantageous.

  • Comfortable working in an outdoor environment during periods of fieldwork.
  • Familiar using MS Office, with excellent technical report writing skills.

Glasgow, London and Bristol, and we are happy to talk about hybrid working patterns. 

You may be asked to attend meetings at our office locations, or travel to clients’ offices or sites as project work requires. This may include international travel, where necessary.
