If you’re part of the Environment Agency (EA), 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.
Your role with us
You’ll join a new Data Improvements team responsible for providing clear, useable and reliable data that ensures the billions we invest in flood and coastal risk management have the greatest possible impact.
In practice, your work will improve data that underpins a vast array of activities, from flood warnings and the effort to combat climate change, to enhancing the public’s understanding of flood risk.
These data sets include a new national assessment of flood risk, long-term investment scenarios and improvements in asset and natural flood management. And the emphasis will be on delivering joined-up, holistic improvements, rather than solving problems through individual projects.
We offer support toward professional membership status of a relevant professional institution. Plus, as part of a new team, we’ll encourage you challenge the status quo, innovate at every turn, build strong relationships and improve our ways of working.

- Has some experience in data management and analysis, or in GIS, flood risk mapping and fluvial or coastal modelling (for example experience with Flood Modeller, ArcGIS, AutoCad or similar would be beneficial)
