• Seasonal / Consultant Ecologist – Exeter
  • Salary: Competitive
  • Position: Full time (Seasonal on 6 month contract, Consultant permanent)  

GE Consulting are looking for a Consultant Ecologist (permanent role) along with a seasonal Assistant Ecologist (April to October) to join our vibrant team located on the edge of Dartmoor.

GE is a mid-sized, privately owned consultancy with an excellent reputation based near Exeter, working for a wide variety of clients across the south of England and into Wales. We are big enough to work on major projects (1000+ unit residential schemes, 1000-acre renewables sites, national utilities contract) yet small enough to feel like you’re part of a close knit team and not a small cog in a huge international organization. We are a company that puts its staff first, creating a fun non-corporate atmosphere where a love of wildlife is shared across a team of like-minded people. Both of these roles will include mentoring and lots of opportunities to learn.

The individuals we are seeking will either be working in the ecological consultancy sector or in the case of the Assistant role have the qualifications ready to start such a career. We are seeking bright and enthusiastic individuals who will bring positivity and passion to our team.
