Meanwhile, we are moving quickly towards Autumn and whilst there has notably been some interference in the job market from summer vacations, the summer as a whole has been a very busy month for the cleantech & sustainability recruitment team at Lewis Davey. 


We’ve successfully closed off a fair few mandates from Graduate Sustainability Engineers though to Principal Energy Consultants and Thermal Energy Modellers but we still have many open opportunities. 


In the UK, we continue to see a demand for qualified BREEAM Assessors in particular but with vast swathes of the “actively” looking talent finding new jobs in BREEAM based roles and sustainability generally over the past year or so, most companies are finding it very hard to secure talent.  As a result the team at Lewis Davey are looking at ways our clients can get their message to potential employees and we would be delighted to hear from our network about what would appeal to you in terms of how a company gets in touch and how they communicate an opportunity.
