So no matter where you’re based, the hours you keep, or the toddlers you have to entertain, we’re committed to our ways of working (WOW) with each other so we can continue to be our best.

About the role

APEM’s hydromorphology team continues to expand and is currently undertaking exciting projects in river restoration, weir removal, reinstating more natural flow regimes downstream of reservoirs, habitat modelling, risk mapping, sediment fingerprinting, management of scour and gravel augmentation.

We are now seeking Consultant and Graduate Hydromorphologists to support our expansion. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated individual to develop within a supportive team environment.

About you

We anticipate candidates will have a range of field survey, data analysis and report writing skills. You will have a BSc/MSc in a relevant discipline (geomorphology, hydrology, environmental science, catchment management). Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential, as is as the ability to work to tight deadlines. The ability to analyse geospatial data in GIS, hydraulic/ sediment transport modelling and catchment modelling would be advantageous but not essential.

Essential experience/ skills:

  • BSc/MSc in a relevant discipline (e.g. geomorphology, hydrology, environmental science, catchment management).
  • Understanding of hydrological and fluvial/ riparian zone geomorphological processes.
  • Experience of undertaking field work, e.g. restoration appraisal, fluvial audits, physical habitat surveys, sediment sampling.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Able to work to tight deadlines.

Desirable experience/ skills:

  • Able to view and analyse geospatial data in GIS.
  • Excellent proficiency with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.)
  • For the consultancy grade: work experience in the field of geomorphology in a consultancy or regulator environment.

You will value variety and respond positively to new challenges. You will have the ability to deliver independently and as part of project teams drawn from our regional offices, and to communicate effectively with clients. Therefore, a sense of pride in, and responsibility for, your work are paramount.

You will be primarily office/home-based, although site visits, client meetings and fieldwork are likely to be required. These may include overnight stays; therefore, a full driving licence and personal flexibility is essential.

We recognise that everyone’s story is different. 

The opportunities, experiences and challenges faced in life shape who we are today and we understand that these are the things that make us individual and unique. Embracing our differences means we’re able to approach what we do from every dimension. Inspiration and insight can come from anywhere, and no matter your history or choices in life, we empower our people to be their best, so we can be our best, together. 

We welcome the whole you.
