Atkins’ Infrastructure business is looking to appoint a Practice Manager to lead our Contaminated Land and Hydrogeology (CLAH) team in the Midlands and Southwest region. Joining Atkins at Principal or Associate Director status, and reporting to the nationwide CLAH Practice Director you will be responsible for leading a Practice of some 40-50 talented individuals across multiple offices (Birmingham, Bristol, Exeter) to deliver some of the most exciting infrastructure projects. The work involves local, national and international projects being delivered by Atkins including the development of Cities, Transportation and Energy Infrastructure.
Atkins is one of the world’s leading engineering and design consultancies; we have the breadth and depth of expertise to respond to the most technically challenging and time critical infrastructure projects. The CLAH Practice within Atkins is a well-established, multi-disciplinary, environmental and engineering practice with an extensive portfolio of regeneration and infrastructure development projects. Our technical expertise and highly skilled team has been recently recognised at the Brownfield Briefing Awards (2016), winning awards for Best Project Closure/Verification Process, Best Public Participation, Best Urban Regeneration Project and Best Young Brownfield Professional, plus highly commended within the Best Brownfield Infrastructure Project category.
We have considerable brownfield land regeneration experience working with developer clients, and have a portfolio of projects working with private and public sector clients in the investigation, assessment, remediation and redevelopment of brownfield land, and the contaminant and engineering hydrogeology of major infrastructure. We are seeing excellent potential for growth in our CLAH business across the UK.
The Practices are the ‘technical powerhouse’ that forms the foundation of our organisation. As Practice Manager you will work collaboratively to achieve targets, exceed client expectation and drive innovation. The successful candidate will therefore need to be committed to having technical excellence, consistency in delivery, knowledge sharing and innovation at the heart of the practice.
We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced and adaptable individual with excellent interpersonal, technical, project management and client management skills; expertise in contaminated land, hydrogeology and brownfield land regeneration; a proven track record of successful client and regulatory engagement; the ability to complete technical authorisation; and capable of delivering the high standard of geo-environmental consultancy services for which Atkins is renowned.
