Howmet Aerospace Inc. is currently in search of a Senior Specialist, Environmental to join the EHS group in Pittsburgh, PA or Eastern US location.

This position is responsible for providing environmental management leadership and regulatory/technical consulting services to Howmet locations and business units. 

The primary areas of focus include water management (i.e. water, stormwater, wastewater treatment), environmental metrics and sustainability disclosures, and environmental compliance management.  A working knowledge-level in other environmental disciplines (waste, chemical release, EPCRA, TSCA, transportation) is expected to provide consulting support.  This position reports to the Director, Corporate Environmental & Remediation and closely interacts with internal customers at the Corporate, Business Unit and location levels.

 Key Roles and Responsibilities include:

  • Provide technical and regulatory support services in a highly competitive and rigorous cost environment.

Ensure the service offerings are sensitive to smaller, market-focused, multi-faceted plants/business units while at the same time meeting the needs of larger, core process-oriented locations.
  • Provide a value-added environmental service portfolio that helps the customer identify and prioritize risks and implement effective management systems and countermeasures that will reduce or control risks.
  • Develop and deliver environmental training and skill-building sessions to internal customers.
  • Identify and track emerging environmental issues and communicate with internal stakeholders to ensure potential impact to Howmet locations, businesses and regions are understood.
  • Provide technical support to various environmental data collection, analysis, and reporting systems. Maintain information on media-specific SharePoint sites for water, waste and chemical management.
