Job Description

Due to ever increasing project workloads, SLR’s busy Air Quality team is looking to appoint Senior Air Quality Consultants to join one of several offices and provide support on delivery for a range of projects including legislative and development planning support for clients across a broad range of sectors including built environment, industry, energy and waste, infrastructure and more.

Our team work UK-wide as a single team, as part of SLR’s “one team” culture, and whilst it would be preferable if we could appoint the role into an office where the team currently has a presence (Bristol, Manchester, Bradford on Avon), for the right candidate we would consider other locations.

As well as strong modelling skills and a detailed knowledge of air quality issues in the UK, candidates are likely to be comfortable with the business aspects of environmental consultancy, including project management and generation of fees through consultancy.

SLR is a truly multinational consultancy and offers significant potential for career development and enhancement based on performance. Our “one team” culture, flat management structure and straightforward approach to project and budget management gives everyone the opportunity to progress; and to work on interesting projects with valued clients. We strive to ensure that opportunities both for new starters and for existing staff are open to all, and we have family friendly policies aimed at helping staff balance the needs of professional and family life. These include remote working facilities, as well as the potential for part time, job share and other flexible working arrangements.

Along with a competitive basic salary, the successful candidate will receive a comprehensive benefits package including 25 days annual leave (excluding public holidays); flexible working arrangements; car allowance; private health cover; death-in-service cover; professional membership subscription; and pension.


As an air quality specialist, you will be required to play a direct role in the delivery of a diverse range of projects. This will include detailed dispersion modelling and assessment of transport and industrial air quality, odour assessments, input into EIAs and Environmental Permit applications and ambient air quality and odour monitoring. An element of site work would be required as part of the role.

The successful candidate will join an exciting and dynamic team, and become involved in all aspects of project delivery from client liaison and task / project management, and report production. A high level of technical competence is required with practical experience in dispersion modelling software desirable (including AERMOD, ADMS 5, ADMS Roads). Additional training on the use of dispersion modelling software would be provided.


Candidates should be able to demonstrate:
• Experienced Air Quality consultant who can demonstrate both technical and commercial experience in a similar role.
• Technical experience to include dispersion modelling (Aermod/ADMS/ADMS Roads/DRMB), AQ, Dust and Odour Assessments
• Confident in both managing existing client relationships and developing new clients/workloads
• Relevant numerically-based degree and appropriate level of membership of IAQM/IEnvSc or equivalent is required
