The role

As an Associate Ecologist, you'll be reliable, hard-working, organised and pro-active, to help you manage a busy workload.

You'll have experience of delivering major projects, good project management skills and report-writing skills, and experience of line-managing individuals.

Within the team you will enjoy the benefits and security of a large corporation, but also work as a small close-knit ecology consultancy that understands the importance of welfare and wellbeing. There are mentors for staff at all levels who provide support at a personal level and guide the development of skills and experience. There is a programme of internal training courses and a generous budget for external training aligned to your professional development goals.

  • Excellent knowledge of UK wildlife legislation and policy, as well as Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA);
  • Holder of relevant protected species survey licences;
  • Experience of protected species mitigation licensing;
  • Technical and professional proficiency with a demonstrable history of delivering ecology projects to a high standard, on time and within budgets;
  • Strong project management skills and experience (including technical, financial and quality aspects);
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, in particular the ability to write concise technical reports;
  • Proven ability to work closely and collaboratively with colleagues and clients, as well as to manage own time;
  • Experience in line management as well as technical leadership of teams of ecologists on major projects;
  • Electronic data capture, analysis and presentation;
  • Adaptable and flexible approach to work (as all roles are likely to involve occasional longer/and or unsociable hours)

Why this role?

Our client is very committed to helping its employees achieve a healthy work-life balance, they actively celebrate flexible working and would be happy to discuss a working arrangement to suit you. You will also receive a competitive salary, 25 days' annual leave, company pension scheme, private medical insurance, life assurance and one paid annual professional institution membership fee. You can also choose from a wide range of flexible benefits to suit your lifestyle.
