Environment Protection Officer


Full time, permanent

Location: Fort William Office (whilst this will be your base location it is not expected that you will be required to attend the office every day)

£30,532 to £34,378 (you will join SEPA on £30,532) - plus an attractive benefits package.


Every day the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) works to protect and enhance Scotland's environment, helping communities and business thrive within the resources of our planet. We call this One Planet Prosperity. The scale of environmental challenge facing humanity is enormous, with a real urgency to act.


Our statutory purpose is clear, that we need to create environmental success in ways that, as far as possible, also create social and economic success. The two core services we deliver for the people of Scotland are regulation and flood risk management, and with One Planet Prosperity we have established a radical strategy for how we will drive change.


To support this strategy, we are seeking to recruit an Environment Protection Officer who will be based in our Fort William Office. As a member of a busy Environmental Performance team covering Lochaber, West Highland, Argyll and Bute and the Western Isles, you will work with a variety of regulated businesses to ensure compliance with environmental regulations and respond to reports of environmental pollution.


We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for candidates with practical industrial or regulatory experience who can apply their expertise in a pro-active regulatory role. Additionally, you must be able to build great working relationships and engage effectively with those we regulate, local communities, partner bodies, and other relevant stakeholders.


You can find out more about this role in the job descriptions.


SEPA aspires to be a world-class regulator and wants to work with those we regulate to help Scotland move from being a three to a one planet society. Are you the right person to help us achieve that? If so, we would love to receive your application.


Closing date:24 October 2021.
