Why Work for SLR

If you are looking for opportunity, challenge and reward then look no further: come and join SLR.

Our staff work globally on diverse, interesting and challenging projects; and we believe in ensuring that our greatest asset – our staff – are rewarded and progress. With over 1100 professionals working across five global regions and within over 30 technical disciplines, our position and client base in the industry is unrivalled.

From Ecologists to Acousticians; Process Engineers to Permitting Consultants; Landscape Architects to Land Quality specialists – whatever your specialism and wherever you are based, you could be part of a team of industry-leading professionals with an exciting future in front of you.


At the heart of SLR is a “one team” culture that was established over 20 years ago when the firm was a small UK business with just three offices. This culture is still central to the firm today across our global network of 76 offices.

Our collaborative approach enables everyone to focus on what is important – delivering the best service for our clients.

We also promote an entrepreneurial environment where innovation is encouraged. Freedom and support is given to individuals to develop their careers and play a full role in the future of our business.

You will also find a flat management structure where the only limit to how far you can progress is you.


Staff across the business collectively own the majority of shares in SLR, with a minority stake held by our external investor, 3i. Consequently, leadership decisions are made by colleagues who understand the opportunities and challenges you will face on a daily basis and who share a genuine interest in SLR’s long-term success.

With the potential to gain equity within the business, it could be you making these decisions one day too.
