Senior / Principal Ecologist (Pell Frischmann)

About Pell Frischmann:

Pell Frischmann is an international multi-disciplinary consultancy with over 90 years of experience in the built environment. We are a unique business whose purpose is to generate sustainable funds to deal with the environmental and social commitments resulting from the closing of Germany’s hard-coal mining industry; so our work directly contributes to environmental protection and preservation for the future.

Main Purpose of the Job

As a result of our growing workload, we are looking for a Senior Ecologist based out of our Manchester, Birmingham or Wakefield offices to oversee and aid project delivery for a range of internal and external clients.

Duties will include general ecological consultancy activities on a variety of projects throughout the UK, with a focus on raising awareness of the ecology services we can offer to in-house projects and external clients in the north-west and into Wales.  Once you are in post, we would look at expanding the team in your office around you. We maintain weekly contact and have regular support meetings so we really do all consider ourselves part of the one overall team.

The right candidate would be an excellent communicator with sound ecological knowledge of legislation, planning and survey design and mitigation, with a solid background in ecological consultancy and the ability to forge positive professional relationships with ecologists and non-ecologists alike.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Leading the technical elements of a project as required whilst ensuring high levels of safety, quality and environmental responsibility
  • Be responsible for the technical quality of your own and the team’s survey, analysis and reporting in accordance with good practice guidance, ecological legislation and the Pell Frischmann internal quality systems
  • Forge positive and professional relationships with in-house staff and external clients
  • Project Management as required with good commercial awareness and financial control, ensuring deliverables meet the client’s needs and are provided cost effectively and to an exemplary standard
