About us


We’re the Environment Agency. We protect and improve the environment and make it a better place for people and wildlife. We operate at the place where environmental change has its greatest impact on people’s lives. We work closely with a wide range of partners to make sure we are reducing the risk from flooding to communities, there is enough water for people and wildlife; protect and improve air, land and water quality and apply the environmental standards within which industry can operate.


Civil and Mechanical Engineering with the Environment Agency


Flooding has a dramatic – sometimes life-changing - impact on people, properties and businesses. In England, some 5 million properties – 1 in 6, are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea. That’s why we’re constantly working to reduce the risks to people, households and businesses from flooding and help people to improve, protect, value and enjoy their local environment. And it’s why an engineering career with the Environment Agency is so challenging, diverse, exciting and rewarding.


We are seeking Civil and Mechanical Engineering graduates to become part of our team. Our three to four year national engineering graduate programme focuses on four vital areas: technical, commercial, professional and management. It’s a structured, well supported programme and one that will see you take on a mix of internal and external assignments, building up skills in everything from asset management to project feasibility, planning and design to project management and site supervision. Typically, you’ll spend three months to a year on each assignment, giving you plenty of time to get to grips with the real issues, gain the necessary experience, making each project your own.


About you


You’ll need to be a graduate with a MEng degree in Civil Engineering (or equivalent) or an accredited Mechanical Engineering degree (or BEng (hons) plus an appropriate Master’s degree or approved further learning to Masters level).


Keen to learn, you’ll be ready to make the most of all the assignments and opportunities that will come your way.


We offer a competitive package with a range of benefits and the opportunity to make a real difference to the environment. In addition, we offer flex-time, helping you achieve a positive work-life balance. We’re fully committed to having an inclusive workforce that reflects the communities we serve and welcome applications from candidates seeking flexible working patterns, including job share.
