Jeff Roberts, director said: “We are delighted to welcome both Leighton and Rachel to the team, it is fantastic that we have been able to expand in line with our business goals. The Operations Technician role is a major addition to the team which will provide support and allow our consultants to focus on the technical aspects of their own responsibilities. We would also like to thank the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), who are the MOD official provider of Armed Forces Resettlement to civilian roles, who assisted us in finding a candidate of the calibre of Leighton.”

Leighton Pearson added: “I am very happy to be joining Roberts Environmental and I’m looking forward to getting to know the team. I was attracted to the variety of services they offer and the geographical spread of the projects which would allow a balance between site work and the logistical requirements of the business. Hopefully with my contribution we can continue to expand the geo-environmental capacity of the business to provide a comprehensive and efficient consultancy package.”

 Leighton and Rachel’s appointment follows the promotion of Ben Lawry from graduate consultant to consultant.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
