Artesia is a professional consultancy serving the water sector, companies, government and NGOs.  Our mission is to solve our clients’ challenging water management problems through the application of technical excellence.  We are in an exciting period of organic growth, with plans to grow from our current team of six to around 15 over the next five years. 

We are recruiting to deliver this growth and as part of this plan we want to recruit an experienced water resources modeller.

This role is required to provide technical support to one of our directors, to enable the growth of this service area, according to the projections in our business plan.  Water resources modelling (including yield analysis, deployable output modelling, climate change analysis, outage estimation, headroom analysis, social and environmental costing, etc) is largely a new service for Artesia.

We are looking for a highly numerical person with around 6-8 years’ experience in water resources management, with the ability and enthusiasm to apply this experience on projects for water companies and regulators (mainly in the UK).  Experience of applying statistical techniques to water resources planning issues would be desirable.

You will have a first degree in an earth science or science subject, and preferably an MSc/PhD in a similar field.  You will have worked on water resources planning projects, either in a UK water company, as a consultant or academic.  You will be a pro-active individual who is able to work on several projects at once and who may also have experience (and qualifications) in project management, ideally in a consultancy environment.   

This role would also provide project management support, and it is likely that a suitably experienced modeller would also be able to support other services (e.g. demand and water efficiency). You may also be involved in bid preparation and client meetings.

This position will be based (initially at least) at our new office in Yate, about 10 miles north of Bristol.  The office is located right next door to the railway station with regular connections to Temple Meads and Parkway.  There is also the option for the position to ‘relocate’ to Cardiff in the next 1-2 years.

We aim to provide a creative environment for all staff that stimulates development and rewards exceptional performance.  We offer competitive benefits in order to recruit the best candidates.

Please send your CV with a covering letter to Rob Lawson ( if you think you have the qualifications, experience, enthusiasm and personality to be a proactive member of our growing team.

No agencies please.
