Working with us means protecting and improving the environment for generations to come, tackling issues of national importance across a huge variety of disciplines. Our responsibilities span major industry regulation, flood defences, land contamination, water quality, fisheries, and conservation. Such a broad scope of work calls for diverse, multi-skilled teams and exceptional leadership: together, we’ll promote sustainable growth, tackle climate change, and secure a better future for everyone.
Your role with us
Our roles provide the ideal opportunity if you want to make a difference in your legal work and you care about the environment. We currently have 2 roles available – one based in Birmingham and one in either Birmingham or Peterborough.

They also provide training to staff on relevant criminal procedures such as disclosure requirements and the use of statutory enforcement powers. Join them and you will have the opportunity to develop an exciting and varied caseload and make your mark in a national organisation that promises a good work-life balance and great professional development and training throughout your career.
