Job Description

*Any UK SLR Office Considered* SLR’s Air Quality team has enjoyed strong growth over recent years, with a wealth of new talent joining at Project and Senior grades. To help continue this growth, we are seeking Air Quality specialists to join at SLR’s Associate and Principal grades, and to play a key role in the continued commercial growth and technical leadership of our teams and projects. Whether you are already in a leadership capacity and looking to make your next move, or an experienced professional looking to expand on your existing commercial and business development skills and to take on more responsibility we want to hear from you.

SLR’s “one team” culture, at the heart of its business and central to further plans to expand encourages collaborative working within a supportive environment; and the person (or persons) joining will do so as part of a single, region-wide Air Quality team, and with the resource of its existing expertise to ensure project delivery of new work to the highest standards.
SLR offers an enviable range of 31 individual Environmental, Advisory and Engineering technical disciplines, again all working in unison; so the range of services which we are able to offer clients is unrivalled; and cross discipline collaborative working and breadth of expertise available is key to SLR’s ongoing success.

The role presents a great opportunity to combine SLR’s existing resources with your own expertise and knowledge, and to play a key role in shaping how the team grows moving forward.

Location is flexible – our disciplines all work UK-wide as a single team so for the right individual we can usually accommodate a new role in most locations. However, an appointment in an office where we currently have a presence – Bristol, Bradford on Avon, Manchester, London, Guildford – or in one of our larger offices such as Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield or Worcester – this would be preferable.

Along with competitive salaries, SLR staff also enjoy a comprehensive benefits package including healthcare and travel insurance and pension contributions and a structured career path with real opportunities for progression. Our comprehensive annual review process ensures that the efforts of our staff remain adequately recognised and rewarded. Agile working allows staff to tailor hours worked around core hours of 10am-4pm, and our family friendly policies help staff balance the needs of professional and family life.


As an air quality specialist, you will be required to promote the SLR air quality team in the marketplace, help facilitate further growth and play a direct role in the delivery of a diverse range of projects.

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, to report production and business development. 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 for projects in the UK and abroad.


• Experienced Air Quality consultant who can demonstrate both technical and commercial experience in a similar role.
• Proven work winning capability with excellent knowledge of market places and key clients.
• Technical experience to include dispersion modelling (e.g. Aermod/ADMS/ADMS Roads/DMRB), industrial air pollution, power generation, traffic emissions, dust and odour assessments
• Confident in both managing existing client relationships and developing new clients/workloads
• Expert witness experience would be an advantage
• Line management experience desirable but not essential;
