Senior Ecologist (Biodiverse Consulting)

We’re seeking a passionate and focussed individual who shares our values and purpose – to balance business with biodiversity.

As our Senior Ecologist, you will have extensive ecology consultancy experience and knowledge of current and incoming legislation, species, and habitats. However, it is the proactive attitude, client focus and creative approach that will successfully deliver this role. A track record of protected species licencing applications, including design and implementation of mitigation schemes is desirable.

About us

Here, you’ll be part of a boutique consultancy built on passion, dedication, and integrity.

We’re a progressive and supportive team that is small enough to care yet large enough to work on nationally significant projects, supporting lasting, environmentally positive change.

Each team member can experience every aspect of consultancy work, learning from each other and our peers.

We encourage innovation and creativity and are committed to advancing your development. If you have a particular area of expertise you’d like to nurture, we’ll support you, through training, volunteering time and CPD.

For the right candidate, this is an opportunity to drive change at an exciting time in the evolution of the ecology consultancy sector.
