Senior / Principal Air Quality Consultant


The Opportunity

Redefine your personal best.

We aim to support our clients in delivering sustainable and desirable developments through promoting Stantec’s ethos of ‘designing with communities in mind’ and ‘Places first’ by providing insight at the initial conceptual stage of developments to ensure air quality positive design measures are embedded to minimise generation and exposure to air pollution (outdoor and indoor).

You would join the Stantec UK Air Quality team which is based in our vibrant Bristol city centre office (Or any of our offices in the South) alongside colleagues in the wider Environmental Services team and Stantec’s Engineering, Buildings, Infrastructure, Transportation and Planning Teams.

The Air Quality team undertakes a wide range of studies across the UK throughout the development control process (i.e. in support of site promotion, input to planning application, condition discharge) for all scales and types of development. We also undertake detailed studies in support of Environmental Permit applications in the power, water, industry, minerals and waste sectors.

You will already have experience in undertaking air quality impact assessments involving road traffic, combustion and odour emissions using air quality dispersion modelling software and monitoring programmes to inform report writing and contribute to Environmental Statement preparation. You will also have an interest in developing these skills to enhance assessments to reflect emerging requirements in relation to both human and ecological receptors to provide a more holistic approach to air quality.

About You

You’ll be a seasoned Air Quality consultant, degree qualified in a relevant discipline and ideally experienced in working in leading, mentoring and supporting junior colleagues in a collaborative environment. You’ll be capable of working both independently and or as a part of our multidisciplinary teams on a variety of land development and urban regeneration projects.

Additionally, you’ll demonstrate:

  • Experience of dispersion modelling (ADMS Roads and AERMOD or ADMS5) and be proficient with the application of GIS packages within an air quality environment and digitalisation of the input and outputs of modelling packages
  • Experience in assessment of highways schemes in accordance with Highways England guidance (i.e. DMRB and WebTAG) is desirable
  • Expertise in the assessment of emissions to air from the power, minerals, industrial or waste sectors would be advantageous
  • Experience in managing and mentoring junior team members to enable them to progress
  • An understanding of the LAQM and UK planning and regulatory system
