Environmental Restoration Planners

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Many employers prefer to hire environmental restoration planners who have a master's degree and several years of work experience. The job requires close attention to detail, organizational skills, and the ability to work independently as well as in a team. Planners must be able to set up and monitor testing equipment and use lab equipment to analyze environmental samples such as soil, ground water, and emissions. They are good at gathering information from different sources, evaluating this information, identifying problems, and working closely with others to come up with the best solutions and plans. Successful restoration planners have a solid grasp of environmental laws and regulations and remediation plans for environmental compliance. They have clear communication skills and are able to express their findings and ideas both in writing and verbally, whether by e-mail, telephone, or in-person meetings and presentations.
