Environmental Scientist (KTP Associate)

Open University / Albion Environmental Limited
Location: Ayr, Scotland
Salary: £22,000 to £25,000
Closing Date: 11th January 2019

24 month Temporary Contract 

Based at Albion Environmental Ltd, Ayr, Scotland 

This is an exciting 24 month fixed term post with Albion Environmental Ltd, one of the UK’s leading consultants specialising in waste management, environmental, health and safety solutions.  Albion Environmental deliver strategic advice, support and training to the waste management and construction industries in both the public and private sectors.

Employed by The Open University, but based full-time at Albion Environmental’s offices in Ayr, this varied role involves working on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project to help Albion Environmental acquire the knowledge, capabilities in-house and technical expertise to complete bioaerosol assessments.  Working alongside internationally renowned experts in the field of bioaerosol monitoring, the role will provide the opportunity for the KTP Associate to acquire the knowledge, skills and practical experience of completing environmental and occupational health bioaerosol assessments, analysis of results and provision of recommendations of improvements to clients.

You will have a BSc (2:I or above) in a relevant scientific subject (e.g. Environmental Sciences, Microbiology or Biology, Chemistry).  You will need to feel equally at home working in the field alongside Albion Environmental’s consultants as you are in the laboratory and thrive on working in a commercial and research environment. The role will require you to be able to communicate with and influence a variety of stakeholders including academics and business people.  A driving licence is essential as you will be travelling extensively between field sites, and be willing to travel between Albion Environmental’s office in Ayr and the Open University’s Walton Hall Campus in Milton Keynes.  It is expected that the KTP Associate will spend time both Ayr and Milton Keynes.

This role offers an excellent opportunity to accelerate career progression with great training opportunities and valuable commercial experience.
