Cleantech & Sustainability Christmas Job and Market Update

Cleantech & Sustainability Christmas Job and Market Update

Well that year went quickly. Like many of you, the Lewis Davey team are starting to wind down for the Festive period but in the remaining days leading up to Christmas and New Year we are very keen to hear from anyone considering a move in the New Year across our core markets of Cleantech, Sustainability, Planning & Design, Environmental and Smart Cities. Now is generally a great time to dust of your CV and secure a new role when hiring appetite is generally refreshed in January. You can send us your CV via

Many of our current job openings are below. From talking to our clients, we are expecting many more to come online in the New Year. We’ve seen renewables take a bit of a hit thanks to Amber and no doubt some influence from the Treasury but COP21, Integrated Reporting and the Sustainable Development Goals mean 2016 will no doubt be an interesting time for Sustainability and Cleantech, led by businesses and individuals committed to change. No doubt solar in the EU and the UK in particularly will continue to be a challenging environment due to MIP, VAT and FIT changes and we will be watching Energy Storage and Demand Response very carefully indeed!

On behalf of all at Lewis Davey, I’d like to take this moment to thank everyone for your support in 2015 and look forward to working with you and some new faces in 2016.
