Contract Type
My client is a leading independent ecological consultancy with a fantastic reputation for providing their clients with an outstanding level of service. As one of the market leaders in their field they work mostly in the land use planning and management environments. Since their inception they have built a first class client base across southern Britain with whom they work on an extensive portfolio of environmental assessment and conservation management planning work. They are renowned for their objectivity and depth of experience of nature conservation in Britain.

Due to an increase in their workload they are looking to develop their existing team with the addition of a first class Senior Ecologist. They are seeking highly motivated people with solid relevant experience within a consultancy environment, to manage a range of exciting projects.

The successful candidate will be an IEEM member (or eligible to become so) with excellent report writing skills and spoken communication. You will have had extensive ecological experience, with good all round habitat and/or species survey experience, and must be able to bring specific expertise in one or more specific areas (bat and bird ecologists are of particular interest). It is essential that you have a full understanding of nature conservation and planning legislation, and experience of its implementation. Practical experience in EcIA is also a requirement, together with an understanding of development issues and experience in dealing with commercial clients.

The position would attract a highly competitive salary (negotiable based on qualifications and experience) and a comprehensive benefits package including an ethical pension scheme and an extensive in-house training and professional development programme.
