  • 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)
