Our people

Building skills and knowledge for the future

We work together to advance scientific knowledge, understand stakeholder and customer needs, deliver excellent world-class outputs to meet these requirements, and continue to build skills and knowledge for the future.

UKCEH delivers world-class science with impact, which requires high levels of expertise across a broad range of disciplines and professions. We are committed to developing our existing experts and leaders, recruiting the best scientists and professional management and support staff for the future, and training the next generation of environmental scientists in partnership with universities in the UK and overseas.

Our People Strategy describes how we will work together with an ethos of continuous improvement and strive for excellence in delivery to meet stakeholder and partner needs.

We provide a working environment that supports equality, diversity and inclusion, recognises and motivates individuals, stimulates teamwork and provides opportunities for personal and career development.

Our approach reflects the importance of flexibility, teamwork and diversity, recognising the contribution made by all to the success of our organisation. We seek to create a working culture that is inclusive and provides a sense of belonging.
