Associate Ecologist (Tyler Grange)

Associate Ecologist – Birmingham

Are you passionate about protected species? Are you batty about bats or wild about botany? Do you love getting involved with exciting project teams to help deliver high quality development projects? Mad about mentoring others? You’ll fit right in.

Working in the Ecology planning sector, this role will be able to deliver protected species surveys and assist in all survey work, from project inception and bidding stages through to the completion of the planning documents, including Preliminary Ecology Appraisals, Ecological Assessments, Ecological Impact Assessments, Mitigation Strategies, Management Plans and Method Statements. We are looking for a person who can help lead the team and nurture our Consultants and Graduates in the early steps in their careers. The role will support the wider team to win the work they love. You will develop great relationship with our clients and be supportive of their projects. We love finding solutions to their concerns.

At Tyler Grange, we take a creative approach to every challenge we face; the normal way of doing things isn’t always the best way. If you enjoy getting stuck in and immersing yourself in a fast paced and energetic environment, this job is for you.

The tasks you’ll come across will be varied to say the least… You will juggle a combination of juicy projects you can sink your teeth into and offer assistance to others in cross-discipline team and you will be adept at changing plans with the weather, but there will be quieter moments to take stock (join one of our yoga sessions?!). No day will be the same and we certainly offer variety.
