Job Description

Company Description

PPM Consultants, Inc. is an environmental and engineering consulting firm providing services to petroleum marketing, manufacturing, commercial, and energy sectors, as well as local, state and federal government. We specialize in providing soil and groundwater assessment and remediation; a full range of air, water, and waste compliance consulting; due diligence; brownfield redevelopment; and other related environmental services. Founded in 1994, PPM now operates seven offices in the Southeast and is consistently listed on the ENR 200 list of largest environmental consulting firms in the country.

Position Description

The Environmental Compliance position at PPM provides the aspiring professional an incredible opportunity for long-term career success and advancement. This position is located in Jackson, MS, but the possibility for remote work in the state of Mississippi is a possibility. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with a large team of environmental compliance professionals conducting work for client facilities across our gulf south footprint and beyond. The model employed by PPM's compliance services is collaborative in nature, including a brief weekly meeting connecting all offices to ensure our compliance knowledge is very deep and not limited to the knowledge base of those in the office of primary assignment. This also brings opportunity to move to another PPM office if a geography change is desired or if family/personal situations precipitate the need. The position allows for a significant amount of flexibility, including work at home options. By the same token, PPM takes pride in its office locations to create a professional, relaxed environment where real relationships and collaboration can be fostered. It is our opinion that this balance of flexibility and work environment creates an environment where we can best serve our clients!
