Environmental specialist I

Job Profile

Our team is currently delivering environmental and social advisory services to development banks, commercial lenders, investors and developers on over 1000MW of onshore wind, over 500MW of solar PV, run-of river hydro power in Chile and Nicaragua, geothermal power projects in Central America, conventional thermal power, toll roads and waste projects.

We also work on projects outside Latin America funded by agencies such as the USTDA under government led initiatives such as Power Africa including countries such as Kenya, Mozambique, Ghana and South Africa.

Job Description

As a graduate environmental consultant you will join a great team, who have been where you are now and have developed to being the top in their field. They’ll show you how and take you on that journey.

Your work will be focussed in Latin America and Mexico.

Our team uses Mott MacDonald’s state of the art technology to work seamlessly from our regional offices in The Woodlands, Texas and Washington DC, this team is linked to a network of over 200 environment and social safeguards practitioners globally.

Nicola, your manager, says: “we have a lot of work lined up! You’ll be providing construction and operations monitoring support on wind farm and solar projects in countries such as Uruguay, Mexico and Honduras. You will undertake permit reviews for wind, solar, thermal power and hydro projects throughout the region and you will support delivery of environmental and social impact assessments prepared for international financing institutions such as the World Bank”.

Daniela, one of the team based in Washington DC, is currently working on a hydro project in Nicaragua and a solar project in Mexico. Her role is to review current compliance of projects with national requirements and review assessment documentation to verify that it’s in line with good international industry practice. You’ll be supporting our senior specialist to deliver these prestigious projects around the region and to monitor these projects through construction and operation.

We routinely apply guidelines such as the IFC Performance Standards or the World Bank Safeguard policies to the work we do in countries where existing environmental legislation is less well prescribed than the US and a
good understanding of the principles of environmental assessment in the US will stand you in good stead for applying these principles to other countries.

Our office in Washington DC is on Pennsylvania Avenue within touching distance of the most prestigious address in the US! It is surrounded by the offices of our key clients such as US Export Import Bank, World Bank, Inter‑American Development Bank, USTDA, USAID, and many more. There are plenty of opportunities to really immerse in the high octane and academic environment that is DC.
