Position

Are you an ecological consultant working at senior or principal level with prior experience in ecological consultancy? If you are self-motivated, organised, with excellent client communication and excellent ecological knowledge, we would love to hear from you!

We are looking for a senior or principal ecological consultant to join our new consultancy team, which focuses primarily on assessments such as Habitat Regulation Assessment, Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA), ES Chapters and European Protected Species Licence (EPSL) applications. As a company, 2020 has proved to be our most successful year yet, achieving 42% growth, 5% ahead of budget, all during a global pandemic - we think this is pretty impressive.

Requirements

We are looking for candidates who have strong ecological assessment and report writing skills. You will need to be focused on delivering high quality work on time and to budget – providing a first-class service to our clients.

You will already be working at senior or principal level or be ready to take the step up from consultant ecologist to senior. At principal level, you’ll have a wealth of experience within the commercial consultancy sphere and, as such, ideally have experience of undertaking business development, preparing quotes and tenders, and building client relationships. You will be a technical expert and capable of writing accurate and concise reports. At senior level, you will be a competent at producing a wide range of complex technical reports, with some experience of winning work and developing your commercial skillset.

In return, you’ll be joining a company which is ambitious, progressive and offers certainty in times of change. Our workplace is happy and friendly - we are commercial but not corporate, guided by our values of Respect, Integrity, Support and Excellence. As an Employee Owned Trust (EOT) our collective efforts generate results that translate into greater rewards for everyone. You’ll enjoy all the benefits we have to offer, including EOT approved bonuses (after 1 year of service), fantastic on-the-job training, 25 days annual leave, paid professional memberships, free parking (location dependent) and regular social events.
