Current Vacancies

Project Assistant

Simplifi-Solutions is a relatively new company, but has an impressive client list including BMW, Centrica, BAE Systems and Jaguar Landrover amongst others. Simplifi supports its clients by maintaining a register of legislative requirements which enables clients to check their compliance against relevant legislation. This is achieved via the use of a software tool which questions the organisation’s processes and practices after which a register of legislation affecting company procedures is produced. This register must be kept fully up-to-date in order to ensure that organisations are aware of new or amended legislation.

To continue to grow their business, Simplifi need to expand their management, sales and support services whilst also continuing to adapt and develop software and investigate new markets. A project assistant is required to work alongside existing staff members on the creation of robust data analysis tools.

This internship will provide excellent experience for those wishing to pursue a career in environmental consulting and analysis.

This internship is for three months and is co-funded through Lancaster Environment Centre and the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation.

This will be the third internship hosted by the company, where excellent communication and support is offered. A quote from one of last year's interns is below:

“I did a twelve week part time internship with Simplifi-Solutions during my dissertation term. It has strengthened my multitasking, analytical and summarising skills. The experience highlighted the importance of positive communication between a business and its customers in services. I enhanced my time management and organisational skills, as well as honing my communication skills whilst also demonstrating great commitment to my studies and academic life.”
