Application Deadline



The role

Are you an experienced Data Analyst with a passion for employing your skills to protect and enhance the environment? This is an exciting opportunity to play an important and rewarding role in a high-profile work area helping to protect our rivers by analysing the data we receive to assess Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) compliance with environmental permit requirements. We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced Data Analysts to support and develop our work in this area.

In this role you’ll be responsible for:

Analysing and interrogating large sets of water company wastewater flow and storm overflow data together with environmental information to assess compliance against environmental permit conditions.

  • Ensuring quality and robustness of reported data now and in the future.
  • Presenting findings to the team and to local and national operations team to help inform environmental planning, compliance and enforcement outcomes based on your analysis.
  • Providing technical expertise and advice to support the development of a national data management and assessment approach for water company permit compliance.

The team

The Wastewater Recovery programme team is a new team established in National Environment & Business, Water quality Permitting and Compliance to support the identification and delivery of works to improve water company flow compliance.

Longer term, you’ll become part of the Environment Agency’s new data and evidence led approach to future regulation of water companies.

Experience/skills required

It is desirable that applicants have knowledge and experience of the Water Industry sector, Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) permit requirements and the operation and monitoring of flows at wastewater treatment works and storm overflows. However, we would also welcome applications from those with a strong Data Analyst background and demonstrable ability to rapidly apply and adapt these skills to new work areas.

You should have:

  • Experience of using statistical computing and analysis software such as ‘R’, Python or Power BI.
  • Managing and analysing large volumes of data, ideally flow/effluent data.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills - sharing trends, conclusions and making recommendations.
  • The ability to manage your own workload and prioritise conflicting demands.
