Are you an enthusiastic ecologist, ready to take your next step up?

Do you enjoy working with a small dedicated team and want to avoid becoming a ‘small cog in a big machine’?

Are you just as at home knee deep in mud as in a design meeting?

Are you confident in your ability to manage ecology projects for our excellent clients?

Can you write reports efficiently and concisely?

We are expanding our team in Cambridge. The first placement will be for an experienced consultant or senior consultant who can take responsibility (with support) for some of our projects from quote to survey to invoice.  This key role will free up time from our Principal to be able to put more energy in training and supporting you and our assistant ecologist (and another assistant in early 2019).

The minimum requirements for the role are:

  • BSc. or higher in related subject, or equivalent work experience
  • Experience in project management, quoting and client interaction
  • An interest in nature conservation
  • Sound knowledge of British flora and fauna
  • Able to lead various species and habitat surveys
  • Experience working as a clerk of works
  • Full UK Driving License (with own car)
  • EPS survey licences desired.

Candidates must be organised, fun, conscientious and supportive. We value candidates who have interests outside of work.

Salary: Dependent on experience.
