The Environment Agency are seeking to identify a number of scientific editors and writers to support their writing needs. Most of the writing we do is to inform or to instruct, whether to businesses, internal audiences, other government departments or the general public. The information can be complex, technical or scientific, but it is vital that it is written in a way which our readers can understand and so helps us achieve our environmental outcomes.
