The Role

Over the last 30 years, the company’s ecological practice has developed a strong reputation and proven track record as a leader in the field. The Major Projects Team was established to provide ecological support to high-value, long-term schemes across the country.

As Ecological Field Manager you will be working with some of our largest clients on major projects such as road, rail and overhead power schemes. Leading a team and often working on complex schemes with multiple protected species, you’ll act as the trusted link between the client, the fieldwork team, and business support functions.

In addition to overseeing the implementation of mitigation works, you’ll undertake a wide variety of field surveys and provide high-quality expert advice and recommendations to clients through written reports and verbal communication.

Skills and Experience

A background in either field-based ecology or environmental landscaping is essential, with a minimum of two years’ relevant experience. The ideal candidate will be confident leading surveys and providing expert advice.

Good interpersonal skills are essential as the role will work closely with clients and colleagues. Good report writing skills and experience of working on complex projects with multiple protected species is also required.

You’ll need to be able to use Microsoft Office applications and experience with GIS or mapping software would be advantageous.

A valid CSCS card is essential. Personal protected species licences and a current SSSTS certificate would be an advantage.

What we offer

As a part of our team, you’ll be offered a competitive salary in line with your experience and skills, the potential for performance related rewards, company pension, and the opportunity for training and continued professional development.

Middlemarch celebrates diversity and inclusivity in the workplace and is committed to providing fair and equal access to opportunities for all candidates.
