The Environment Agency works to create better places for people and wildlife and support sustainable development. Are you a leader of people with an interest in being at the heart of the biggest investigations the Environment Agency has ever led? We’re seeking 2 experienced, enthusiastic and motivated individuals to establish and lead new teams within the National Enforcement Service. You’ll initially recruit and support the training of new Environmental Crime Investigators, and subsequently manage their work in supporting a high-profile investigation looking into potential breaches of permit conditions at sewage treatment works. You’ll be a strong leader, with the ability to be versatile and innovative in approach, seek efficiencies and the sharing of best practice wherever possible, ensuring continuous improvement in how we respond to emerging threat, risk and harm. Influencing and working collaboratively with external partners and internal teams will be key, as well as ensuring a strong focus on H&S, performance and delivery. This is an exciting opportunity to make a significant impact. To be successful you will: - be versatile and self-motivated; - be able to draw on your experiences of leading high performing teams and describe your leadership role in it; - be a competent communicator, effective at influencing and engaging and using your skills to deliver results through others; - be experienced at managing performance, motivating and developing your team, with an appetite for nurturing relationships and developing people’s capabilities as well as your own. You’ll also need to be competent in the use of IT, eg Microsoft Office. The role will require travel from time to time and so a driving licence is required.
