Allen & York are thrilled to be working with a highly respected technology-focussed marine science consultancy, specialising in marine fauna, underwater-sound monitoring, acoustical and statistical modelling. With an impressive global client list, this is a great opportunity to join a leading consultancy at an exciting time in its growth.

Our client is looking for a commercially focussed Principal/ Associate Consultant to join the consulting team. In this dual role, the successful candidate will help build profitable partnerships, explore new business opportunities, and contribute to the preparation and submission of business proposals and tenders. Alongside this, you’ll work with a team of Marine Consultants and senior scientists, providing advice for environmental impact assessments, licencing and/or equipment specifications and deployment methods.

You’ll need to hold a degree in a relevant business, economics or environmental discipline together with solid relevant commercial experience and offshore fieldwork experience (e.g. MMO/PAM/Environmental Scientist).
