NSB Recruitment have an exciting opportunity for an Associate level Environmental Engineer (homes based) working for one of the UK's largest and longest established acoustic consultancies.
As their industry-leading work on wind farm acoustics continues to expand, they are looking for someone to take on a wide variety of projects, advance and manage them from early stages to completion.
The engineer would be expected to get involved in all aspects of the project, from survey, calculations and EIA chapter drafting, using our unique suite of dedicated software tools and equipment inventory and with full support from the rest of the group. The role would also involve maintaining and developing contacts with key clients in the industry, preparing fee proposals and getting repeat business by delivering a high standard of work.
Although wind farm schemes are a key area, the environmental noise group also assesses a wide variety of other large-scale renewable energy schemes, such as solar farms, as well as mixed-use developments requiring noise assessments as part of the EIA. The proposed role could therefore involve undertaking non-windfarm work based on business needs.
What We Are Looking For
A senior acoustics engineer with previous experience of wind farm noise assessments, in line with current best practice. The candidate should have a working knowledge of all elements of a standard wind farm noise assessment: undertaking and analysing background noise surveys, noise predictions and writing up an EIA noise chapter and supporting information. Additional experience of more complex aspects of wind farm assessments (cumulative noise, compliance monitoring, feature analysis etc.) would be a bonus.
The candidate should be willing to deliver a high standard of work and have a good eye for detail.
Experience of other EIA-scale projects in the renewable sector or general build environment would also be considered useful but this is not a requirement of the role.
Bachelor's degree (and possibly Master's degree or more) in relevant field and membership of institute of acoustics would be expected
