Company description

AFRY offers services in technology, design, digitization and consulting. We are dedicated experts in industry, energy and infrastructure, who create value for future generations.

Job description

Are you motivated by environmental issues and want to create a sustainable future together with us? Are you passionate about social development and the environment? AFRY can offer you career opportunities in a modern workplace with challenging tasks and exciting projects.

Within the Environment & Sustainability business area, AFRY offers qualified consulting services in the environmental area. In Norrbotten, AFRY currently has two sections within the environment, where both sections consist of a mixture of junior and senior consultants. Together, we possess a mixed competence in, among other things, contaminated areas, waste, notification and permit cases, environmental impact assessments, environmental investigations, environmental controls, etc. Our customers are found in both the private as well as the municipal and state sectors. We also offer our environmental expertise to other business areas within AFRY.

With us, you help develop innovative and sustainable solutions within infrastructure, energy and industry. Within AFRY there is the opportunity to participate and drive technology issues nationally, where contaminated areas have their own technology area with connections to universities and research.

We hope you will learn as much from us as we will from you!

The main focus of operations in contaminated areas is project and field work as well as ongoing contact with customers and regulatory authorities. Examples of tasks and responsibilities included in the role of junior environmental consultant in contaminated areas are to:

  • Together with the project manager, plan and carry out environmental technical ground surveys, risk assessments and remedial investigations
  • Carry out field work, both in land, water and buildings
  • Act as environmental support and environmental controller in the action phase
  • Manage ongoing contact with customers, regulatory authorities and waste facilities
  • Participate in construction and project meetings, both internally and externally
  • Report writing and preparation of notification cases to the supervisory authority

Since a large part of the tasks takes place in the form of field work outdoors, we see that you like being outdoors and combining practical work with theoretical work.

Requirements specification

At AFRY we live by our motto: "Brave - Devoted - Team players" which also says a lot about who we are looking for! We attach great importance to your personal qualities, as we value commitment, flexibility and your ability to cooperate with others.

To succeed well and thrive in your role as an environmental consultant, we are looking for you who have:

  • Post-secondary education, either YH or an academic natural science/technical education with a degree in the environmental field or equivalent
  • Very good knowledge of Swedish, both spoken and written
  • B driver's license

No previous work experience is required for this position. However, it is advantageous if you have experience in e.g. the industrial or infrastructure sector, alternatively regulatory issues against contaminated areas from the municipal sector. If you have previous experience of sampling soil and ground and surface water or SGF's certification courses, this is also meritorious.

Does this sound like an interesting position where you would fit in? Take the opportunity to apply already today, selection takes place continuously.
