We believe it is possible to create a working environment that presents challenge and growth while helping people be themselves at work and live healthy, balanced, purposeful lives. 

We want to enable our people to work flexibly and remotely and to support their wider responsibilities through every stage of their life and career. When things do go wrong, we are fully committed to offering assistance and providing access to professional advice. 

We will continue to adapt ensuring the lessons and opportunities arising from the Coronavirus pandemic shape our future.

This will mean greater flexibility in our working practices, better use of technology, better work life balance and lower carbon emissions and impact on the environment. We have invested heavily over a number of years to ensure that people can work safely and have the best training and equipment to keep them from harm, even in challenging working environments.

Today many of our people tell us that working for the Environment Agency is highly rewarding as they directly contribute to the wider wellbeing of our nation. We strive to ensure that working here will be life enhancing.

We are a gold MIND workplace wellbeing index employer and want our people to ‘Be kind, stay safe and grow.’ We know that everyone needs a little help and support from time to time. Our wealth of wellbeing resources in our “Life Pod” covers everything you need to help both in work and home life. There’s the opportunity to be part of a variety of staff networks, use our listening service of over 200 wellbeing supporters and take advantage of our wellbeing app – all of which help you balance your working, home life and development.
