Temple is one of the UK’s leading independent infrastructure and property consultancies, specialising in environment, planning and sustainability. With a team comprising of some of the most talented people in the industry, we enjoy working on exciting and complex projects, where clients can leverage the full value of our insight and commitment. 

Our work portfolio includes: Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and other support for HS2, Transport for the North and Transport for London; iconic large scale property developments and urban regeneration schemes (such as Barking Riverside and Bishopsgate Goodsyard in London); and a wide range of other bespoke planning advice and environmental assessments – everything from air quality monitoring, Biodiversity Net Gain and Environmental Statement reviews, through to expert witness support and sustainability strategies and social value and community consultation work. 

We are seeking energetic, enthusiastic and broadly skilled Consultants to work within our Environmental Assessment (EIA Infrastructure/ Property / Major Projects) team on the management and delivery of projects, as well as helping to grow our business in this area and to further build Temple’s market presence. 

The Role

The Consultant will report to a senior consultant colleague and work closely with all internal teams (including our EIA, Air Quality, Environmental Management & Consents teams) and a wide range of external partners to deliver across a range of projects.

As well as working within and across our teams, the successful candidate will also be given opportunity to take responsibility for tasks and coordination of deliverables within projects.

Responsibilities will include the co-ordination and preparation of a variety of EIA projects including preparation of environmental baselines, scoping and feasibility studies, contributions to environmental appraisals, management of the review process, project management, inputs to tenders for projects across a range of scales and support for the preparation of fee proposals. There will also be access to generic consultancy training and support such as project management and technical report writing and development of new business. Support with membership of an appropriate professional body will also be provided. 

The role will provide an opportunity to work in a small dynamic company but on some of the most exciting projects in the UK, with a sense of feeling that a difference can be made to the way the company operates, even at a junior level.
