As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
Our Environmental team in the UK is growing and we have an exciting senior position available in our ecology team to develop our capacity in environmental economics, working closely with our biodiversity and natural capital specialists. We are looking for someone who is well established as an environmental economist in the UK and who has experience using a range of environment economics tools and approaches. The successful candidate would preferably be located in Cambridge, London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham or Glasgow, although other locations will be considered. The role provides an exciting opportunity to bring innovative solutions to a range of projects, working with both public and private sector clients. The role will focus primarily on UK projects but with potential to engage in our international work.
This is a new role at WSP to contribute towards continued growth and investment in our environmental capabilities. You will be joining a small team of experts in biodiversity and natural capital, delivering technical input across a range of projects for both internal and external clients. As such, you will also be working closely with colleagues within the environmental discipline and wider disciplines across WSP.
We'd love to hear from you if you have:
What if we can?
What if we can have work-life balance? What if we can be rewarded in ways that support our individual needs? What if we can be accepted for who we are? Here at WSP – we can!
WSP recognizes that work is only one part of our lives and making time for the other things in our life is important – be that our families, our friends or ourselves.

As well as rewarding you with competitive pay, WSP offers standard benefits including a 37.5 hour working week, 25 days annual leave, pension schemes, life assurance, personal accident cover and paid professional subscriptions, and some not so standard benefits as part of our flexible benefits scheme – so if you would like to hop on a new bike (cycle to work scheme) or thrill the family with your Lego building skills (Discount at Legoland Windsor) – WSP can help!
