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 compliance, sustainability, environmental management and EIA but their roots are in 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 focused 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, even over the last 12 months where most of the market has plateaued. 

Reporting directly to the board, a motivated individual is sought, who will become an integral member of the Management Team and play a leading role in the organisation.  Furthering the organisations expansion across the UK, an office in Scotland is now planned to capitalise on the existing business coming from that region.  It would be expected that the successful individual would take the lead on setting up and developing the office, building a multidisciplinary team to grow work in the region.  The board has a track record of developing new offices quickly by investing considerable resource, so there would be an opportunity to contribute to and lead a strategic plan of growth.   

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. 


The Individual

The successful individual would be based north of the border, expected to be within striking distance of Edinburgh or Glasgow. 

They would be expected to have;

A track record of in delivering environmental projects within the UK, ideally geo or environmental oriented.

A good sustainable approach to dealing with and developing clients

A desire to lead and motivate a successful team 


In return, a competitive package will be offered but also a chance to develop a UK team alongside some well known and respected individuals in the industry.  Our client is an expanding organisation and has a friendly and autonomous culture which supports and develops people internally.  

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


Feel free to contact Martin Higgins in confidence for further information; or 0121 582 8863
