Qualifications and Training
Usually, a BSc Honours Degree in an engineering, construction or environmental science in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, will most likely be required. Some positions will require a Masters Degree as well, or chartered status with a relevant body.
However, experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered.
