About Us


May Walters is a boutique search consultancy specialising in senior positions within the environmental sector.


The Client


An opportunity has arisen with our client, an established consultancy for an individual to join the team.

Our client is a multi disciplinary environmental consultancy with a reputation of delivering high value solutions to clients.  The organisation has a number of established service lines including sustainability, environmental management and EIA but they are known primarily for their work on brownfield development solutions.  Their client footprint is varied and well established across a number of sectors, from residential and commercial development, manufacturing to retail and leisure and they have a strong network of partner and client relationships with credible case studies.

As they are privately funded with a long standing investor who understands the market, they have an approach to quality of delivery to clients and a client focussed ethos which is less common amongst corporate and listed consultancies due to shareholder demands.  Their growth over the last few years however has been well above industry average, exceeding 20% organic growth which has seen the establishment of a number of new offices and consolidation of key regions of the UK with new clients     

The relatively established London office has been established for a number of years and increased client demand means that a senior individual is now required to take charge of the ecology business line within the southern region of the UK and business in line with the other regions which have seen excellent growth.  The south east is particularly well positioned to grow due to the established relationships of existing clients within the region.   

Reporting directly to the board, a motivated individual is sought, who will be able to lead the office ecology and environmental line in the south and become and integral part of the senior management team.  It would be expected that the successful individual would take the lead on developing larger accounts and setting the strategy for winning new business moving forward.  Operationally you will be required to allocate resource to ensure that projects are delivered up to specification and mentor the team to encourage development.  

Our client is a culturally relaxed organisation that does not have a traditional corporate hierarchy that encourages enthusiasm by providing an autonomous working environment and a good work life balance.

Applications are encouraged from individuals who would value being a part of this.
