Senior Environmental Consultant (ports and marine development)

Royal HaskoningDHV is a UK leading marine environmental consultancy, with over 30 years’ experience of supporting our coastal and marine clients.  Throughout this period, we have developed a uniquely experienced team of experts, who specialise in the consenting, permitting and licencing for complex coastal and marine infrastructure developments and operations, both within the UK and internationally.

We carried out the first Habitats Regulations Assessment on a major port project in 1994, when the Habitats Regulations were first introduced, and continue to be at the cutting edge of marine consenting including working with Natural England to develop and implement marine Biodiversity Net Gain.

Above all, with a UK Environment team of over 150 staff (amongst a much larger company resource), we are known for adding value and making a positive difference for our clients through a proactive, solution orientated approach, the respect of the regulators, and achieving consent for proposals in and around protected environments.

We have an extensive portfolio of clients across a wide range of sectors and geographical area. Examples of recent projects that we have been involved in include: Holyhead Port Expansion for Stena Line Ports, Portsmouth Harbour Aircraft Carrier Berth and Approach Channel for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Bacton Sandscaping Scheme for North Norfolk Council and Leith Outer Berth development for Forth Ports Limited.

Due to an extensive and growing portfolio of marine development work, both within the UK and internationally, we are looking to expand our team and are seeking enthusiastic, optimistic, conscientious and talented people with excellent communication skills and proven technical ability to join our marine team.
