We are working very hard to create a well-rounded team at Biodiversify. This is partly about making sure we have a good combined skillset but is more about finding people who fit well within the company.

  3. Passionate about biodiversity recovery
  4. Strong interpersonal skills

  1. ArcGIS or QGIS
  2. Statistical analysis
  3. Interdisciplinary approaches
  4. Agricultural practices, management and sustainability
  5. UK environmental policy

We started Biodiversify with the aim of creating our dream jobs. This is partially about the work we do, but also about our work ethic and professional culture.
