Senior Acoustic Consultant
You’ve probably noticed that a lot of job posts are just background noise. A long list of requirements but with no convincing reasons to make you move your career.
Thankfully, this company – a thriving environmental and engineering consultancy – have a proposition worth listening to.
Here, you’ll be the lead on all-things acoustic. You’ll help to grow the business and build your own specialist acoustics team. Succeed and you could eventually step up to become a principal consultant and a shareholder in the firm.
A growing business:
You’ll be part of an environmental, engineering and health & safety consultancy that’s going through a strong growth phase. The company is fast becoming one of the main players in a niche market – they’ve opened several new offices to serve a burgeoning client base that spans aerospace; chemical; commercial and retail; construction; energy; food and drink; industrial-manufacturing; life sciences; public sector and waste management.
Part of an ambitious team of specialist consultants, you’ll employ your acoustics experience to take the lead on all noise-related projects – both for existing clients and new business.
Your remit ranges from preparing proposals and costing/planning projects to carrying out assessments and acoustic modelling at industrial and construction sites. Back in the office (you can choose to be based in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Liverpool) you’ll also be writing technical reports and liaising with local authorities and regulators to steer clients through planning and permitting.
You’re a graduate (or equivalent) in a relevant analytical discipline and a full member of the Institute of Acoustics. Your CV includes experience in as many of the following as possible:
- Construction noise assessment and management plans to the BS 5228 standard
- Environmental noise impact assessment for industrial facilities to the BS 4142 standard
- Road traffic and railway noise impact assessments (in support of planning applications)
- UK noise policy and guidance, including the PPC/EP regulatory regime
- Acoustic modelling
It would be an asset if you’ve also worked on industrial noise attenuation equipment solutions or wind farm noise impact assessments.
Then there’s your personal skills – to develop your own acoustics function, from the ground up, you’ll need to be self-motivated, ambitious to succeed and commercially aware. It’s vital you’re an accomplished communicator, in writing and in-person – essential to motivate new starters, to win the confidence of your clients and to build relationships with local authorities and environmental regulators.
Add to that a full clean UK driving licence and this is a role that could take you a long, long way in your acoustics career.
