May Walters is a boutique consultancy specialising in search and selection for senior individuals within the environmental sector.

His approach is drawn from varied experience which includes performance consulting in private sector businesses to delivering interview training for a major metropolitan police force to improve performance.


Contrary to the myth, you can actually put a square peg in a round hole, it just doesn’t fit very well and will likely fall out.

Helping you acquire talent that fits your organisation is what we do.

Our search process is geared towards retention, by focusing on expectations of stakeholders within the organisation so that they can be matched to individuals being assessed.

An organisation’s greatest asset is its talent, effective talent retention begins with the recruiter.


Applying to advertised vacancies begins with emailing someone you don’t know a copy of your CV and hoping it looks better than all the others.

A personalised research based approach with May Walters will qualify opportunity across the entire industry and help you get the most from a career move.

Targeted discussions with decision makers will ensure your CV only goes out if an opportunity is right and then to the right person, ensuring your anonymity.

We influence the design of a role geared around your preferences, often pre-empting and avoiding a wider recruitment process with pre conceived expectations that invites competition.


We specialise in senior appointments within the disciplines of environmental through to engineering.

We operate in the industry sectors of energy, transportation, infrastructure and water.


We are currently interested in speaking to suitably qualified and experienced candidates in the following areas:

- Geoenvironmental, Geotechnical & Remediation
- Environmental Management and Sustainability
- Flood Risk and modelling
- Acoustic
