As part of our Apprentice Programme, you will develop your skills and knowledge whilst working on a wide range of high-profile projects for a diverse client base, gaining valuable work experience and formal qualifications at the same time as earning a competitive salary. You will have the opportunity to experience various disciplines within Waterman's environmental business.

Environmental Practitioners will combine a high level of knowledge and understanding of environmental principles and techniques to complex environmental systems. Their expertise will be developed, adaptable or transferable to a range of environmental specialisms, for example, environmental policy and legislation, air quality, climate change, energy, water resources, waste management, ecology, acoustics, land contamination, sustainability, landscape or heritage.

In their daily work, an employee in this occupation interacts with members of their own project team, typically in an office-based environment but also on site. They will work with technical specialists both within and beyond their profession, for example, environmental managers and consultants, environmental impact assessors, design and commissioning engineers and architects.
