AN environmental firm has stepped up a recruitment drive that could see around 20 staff hired for its UK operations in the next year.
SLR Consulting said it also wants to attract additional UK industry experts for possible placement into its overseas operations in Canada, United States, Southern Africa and Australia.
The move follows the announcement last year of the company’s continued growth and strong performance and the securing of a further £15m in acquisition finance.
The firm, which employs 320 consultants in the UK, wants to fill senior positions across its network of 22 offices although opportunities also exist for entry-level placements to senior appointments in a range of technical disciplines.
“Our recruitment approach for the UK is based on ensuring we continue to meet the evolving needs of the market. So, despite the on-going challenges of the economy, we are investing to enhance our offering and strategic hires remain an important part of this plan,” said Neil Penhall, (pictured below) SLR’s UK managing director and international operations director.
