Environment Agency

Environment Agency

We protect and improve the environment. We work to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development. Acting to reduce the impacts of a changing climate on people and wildlife is at the heart of everything we do. 

  • We reduce the risks to people, properties and businesses from flooding and coastal erosion. 
  • We protect and improve the quality of water, making sure there is enough for people, businesses, agriculture and the environment.
  • Our work helps to ensure people can enjoy the water environment through angling and navigation.
  • We look after land quality, promote sustainable land management and help protect and enhance wildlife habitats.
  • We work closely with businesses to help them comply with environmental regulations.

We can’t do this alone. We work with government, local councils, businesses, civil society groups and communities to make our environment a better place for people and wildlife.

We’re committed to helping our people to find new ways of working and to maintain our focus on creating a better place for people and wildlife.

None of this is possible without a multi-talented team of professional and dedicated people. And just like the environment we help to care for, we’re home to an incredible diversity of skills and knowledge.

Today, we employ around 10,600 people throughout England in a wide range of roles. You’ll find leading scientists and prominent geologists alongside public relations professionals, planners and policy advisors. We employ lawyers, enforcement officers and engineers, conservation scientists and marine biologists.

We employ people at all stages of their career, from apprentices, recent graduates to experienced leaders and internationally-renowned experts.
