Why choose the JBA Environmental Management and Sustainability pathway?

Join our specialist teams delivering innovative and sustainable solutions, leaving a socially valuable legacy to our communities and environment.

We deliver projects relating to carbon management, landscape and arboriculture, ecological survey, environmental impact assessments, environmental planning, and more! As a graduate following this pathway, you will be able to develop expertise further in one or more of these areas through multi-disciplinary projects and rotations.

On this pathway, you could:

  • If you share our enthusiasm for exploring the relationship between climate change, landscape, water and placemaking on a wide range of exciting and varied projects across the UK, then a role as a Graduate Landscape Architect might be for you.
  • You could contribute to Preliminary Ecological Appraisals, more detailed ecological surveys, and Ecological Impact Assessments as a Graduate Ecologist.
  • As a Graduate Environmental Manager, you could coordinate all environmental elements of a project, including advising and consulting with stakeholders, undertaking Strategic Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Assessments, with support from senior colleagues.
Explore all the areas you could experience as part of our Environmental Management and Sustainability pathway here.

You could join our graduates and deliver innovative projects such as...

Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme – Programme Support

“The DEFRA funded and Environment Agency managed £150 million Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme (FCRIP) is at the cutting-edge of national flood risk management. The objective is to build local areas’ resilience to climate change, and to test and demonstrate innovative practical resilience actions to reduce future costs from flooding and coastal erosion. I support and deliver a range of business support services to the EA Programme team and the 25 FCRIP projects. My role has given me the opportunity to build my confidence when communicating with clients, alongside attending national events and improving my understanding of important issues such as the impacts of climate change on FCERM.”

Update to the Working with Natural Processes (WwNP) Evidence Directory

“Five years after it was originally published, we are undertaking the WwNP Evidence Directory update. We have reviewed the last five years of case studies and grey and academic literature that grow the evidence base for natural processes in the management of flood and coastal erosion risk management. My work on this project involved undertaking the run-off management section of the literature review and writing the summary for this section. From this, I developed skills in synthesising information and improving my understanding of a variety of technical areas including land management, landscape features and run-off hydrology.”

National Flood Resilience Indicators Development

“We have been involved in both stages of this project which looks to develop and implement a suite of indicators to track changes in flood and coastal erosion resilience, locally and nationally. The project aims to expand the definition of resilience from a protection-focused approach to one which embraces a broader basket of measures which improve resilience, including enhanced capacity to plan, respond and recover. My contribution to this project involved developing the methodologies to measure certain indicators and complete baseline analysis for these.”
