Environmental Recruitment Consultancy

Environmental responsibility in construction serves many purposes, from complying with environmental regulations and carbon accounting, to reputation and risk management, as well as controlling the costs associated with energy and emissions.

As Construction & Built Environment sectors embrace greener, and more environmentally friendly processes surrounding planning, design and delivery of construction and infrastructure projects – all enveloped by an ever more robust regulatory framework, environmental roles within construction are becoming more important, as is the need for specific types of environmental and geo-technical expertise.

Vertical Recruitment is dedicated in our approach to finding talented individuals to work in Environmental roles across the full gamut, all regions of the UK and all types of public and private construction projects. We recruit at graduate, management levels and through to executive level, and operate nationally with UK based interests, often servicing large corporates, but also serving independent engineering companies and regional construction contractors.

Our services can be used to appoint staff into permanent, temporary and contract roles in all kinds of Environmental disciplines. Because we focus on achieving long-term placements, you know you are always assured of high value from the individuals you hire, while candidates gain confidence in the future satisfaction they will get from their new job.

Specialist Recruitment for Environmental Jobs

Our directors have been recruiting for the construction sector for over 15 years, including finding talented candidates for traditional and emerging Environmental jobs in construction.

This is a high-value discipline. The 2017 IEMA Practitioners’ Survey placed the average salary in full-time environment and sustainability jobs at £39,000 across the board, higher than the UK average for all professional occupations.

IEMA noted a shortage of skilled individuals to work in engineering and construction Environmental jobs, with a growing number of reports of a skills shortage in the public sector too.

Environmental commitments cannot be avoided just because of a lack of talent. With Vertical Recruitment’s help, you can make sure you have an individual in the role who can ensure you meet all of your regulatory & risk compliancy obligations.
