Specialist Asset Management Field Operatives

Environment Agency

Post Type/ Working Pattern – This is a full time office-based role, but you
will occasionally be required to work outside in all weathers.

About us

If you’re part of the Environment Agency, you’re part of the solution. Working with us means
protecting and improving the environment and tackling issues of national importance. We’re
based across England, and our responsibilities span industry regulation, flood defences, land
contamination, water quality, fisheries and conservation.

Such broad scope of work calls for diverse, multi-skilled teams. Together, we’ll promote
sustainable growth, tackle climate change and secure a better future for everyone.

As a Specialist Asset Management Field Operative you’ll join a frontline team that focuses on
protecting people and the environment by maintaining and operating England’s flood and coastal
risk management assets. Offering our colleagues and external stakeholders support and high
quality advice, we also work around the clock as we respond to flooding and environmental
incidents, and provide aid when incidents occur.

In this vital role you’ll work closely with your Team Leader as you complete our maintenance
programme by planning, scheduling and resourcing works, and ensure that the highest standards
of health, safety and wellbeing are maintained. Committed to promoting a hands-on, proactive
culture, you’ll make sure the required paperwork is correct, clear and concise, take
responsibility for the necessary specifications, work collaboratively with a range of internal
and external partners, and assist with projects. You’ll also see that work sites are fully
compliant with legal requirements and our own policies and procedures, and identify, organise
and coordinate training to test our incident response plans.

What do I need?

We welcome applications from people from all backgrounds, and you should be proactive,
self-motivated and a confident communicator with experience of working in field-based teams.
Health & Safety accreditation and an interest in engineering and geography would be an
advantage, and X63 CDM Principal Contractor training is required. If you don’t already have
this, we’ll help you to obtain it via an internal course. You should also possess:

  • Knowledge and experience of managing Health & Safety on construction and maintenance
  • Good IT skills including the ability to use Excel, databases and a range of devices
  • Good organisational skills with the ability to work under pressure while managing multiple,
    conflicting priorities
  • Good knowledge of Risk Assessment Method Statements, Lifting Operations and Lifting
    Equipment Regulations and Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
  • Effective and inclusive leadership skills
  • A full UK Driving Licence.

What’s in it for you?

You’ll benefit from a culture that embraces difference and includes 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:

  • A competitive salary of £29,706
  • 25 days holiday + 8 bank holidays
  • Great career opportunities
  • Maternity, paternity, and adoption leave scheme
  • A range of flexible working options, plus many more!

applications from all backgrounds regardless of race, sexual orientation, and religion. We also
welcome applications for part-time hours.
