Environment & Sustainability Manager (Sizewell C)

Sizewell C. The power of good for Britain.

Location: Sizewell C Site. 

Employment type: Permanent, full-time.

Salary: Competitive dependent on experience, plus bonus and other benefits. 

Closing date: Wednesday 24th April. 

The Opportunity  

Are you looking for a career which is rewarding, at the cutting edge of project development and where you can really make a difference? Come and join our expanding Sizewell C (SZC) team and work on one of the most exciting and largest megaprojects in the UK, whilst being at the forefront of the UK’s climate change agenda and energy policy. 

Following on from the success of Hinkley Point C (HPC), the SZC Project is a nuclear new build project in Suffolk, which has obtained planning approval and Government financing support. The project has started construction and is now seeking private investment. When completed, it will provide dependable electricity to 6 million homes for 60 years, which along with renewables, will support Britain to achieve Net Zero by 2050.

We have a fantastic opportunity for an Environment & Sustainability Manager to lead a world class team, setting and enforcing environmental and sustainability standards, promoting best practice, ensuring for continuous improvement, and acting to ensure that the Sizewell C site and its associated developments continually comply with Environmental Permits and Licences.

The Role
Based primarily on site at SZC, you’ll lead a team of specialists covering a broad range of environmental disciplines including air quality, noise, and ecology through to contaminated land, waste management and sustainability. You’ll also be the primary day to day interface with the local environmental regulators for the SZC Site and local stakeholders. 

Key Responsibilities:

Leadership Excellence: Lead and develop a high-performing team dedicated to fulfilling the E&S Team’s mandate, ensuring effective leadership and professional growth.

Customer-Centric Approach: Deliver exceptional customer/client service in environmental and regulatory interfaces, meeting prescribed service levels and standards.

Strategic Optimization: Review and optimize department resources, processes, and activities to achieve SZC project objectives, with a focus on compliance and procedural adherence.

Environmental Compliance: Maintain and ensure compliance with environmental commitments, site permits, consents, and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System Standard.

Quality Assurance: Manage plans and activities to meet quality standards, ensuring compliance with the SZC Project Quality Manual and quality improvement programme.

Stakeholder Engagement: Foster professional relationships with internal and external stakeholders, providing effective leadership on environmental performance and engagement with local Environmental Regulators.

Environmental Leadership: Encourage world-class environmental behaviour and culture within teams and supply chain, providing strategic environmental leadership for the SZC site.

Risk Management: Identify, manage, and mitigate significant environmental risks and opportunities for the project.

Performance Metrics: Develop and implement site environmental performance measurements (KPIs), driving continuous environmental improvement through review and reporting requirements.

The Skills

You’ll need to be equally comfortable on the construction site talking to workers and supervisors as in the boardroom with senior managers.

Experience with leading environment and sustainability teams working on large, complex and highly regulated construction projects is key. 

You’ll have a high level of emotional intelligence, with outstanding communication and interpersonal skills.

Ultimately, you’ll have a passion for promoting environmental best practices and fostering a culture of sustainability.

If the above sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you!
