*Your role with us*

This may attract an additional payment and full training and alternative working arrangements will be available to support you with your incident role.

An established professional with experience of project or programme management, you’ll have a strong communication, problem solving and reporting background. With a good understanding of incident management, you’ll be comfortable engaging with a diverse set of people and groups, and of establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with stakeholders and colleagues at all levels of the organisation and beyond.

With experience co-ordinating people and plans, you’ll have the ability to adapt and change to respond to changing situations. Most importantly, you’ll be a person passionate about the environment, and about improving environmental outcomes. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a vibrant and dynamic team safeguarding the places that matter.

*What’s in it for you?*

Working at the Environment Agency, you will benefit from an inclusive culture that embraces difference and values everyone, where you’ll feel supported and trusted to do the right thing. We’ll invest in you and allow you to grow and shape your career. What’s more, you’ll have access to our great benefits package including:
