As with all ecological consultancy work, you will need to be a professional with the ability to communicate effectively and to maintain positive client relationships.

  • have working knowledge of ecology, legislation and survey best practice
  • be an excellent communicator with the ability to write clear, concise reports
  • have a full UK driving licence, use of a car, and be willing and able to travel and stay away from home regularly
  • have a positive outlook a strong desire to succeed
  • have membership to the Chartered Institute of Ecological and Environmental Management (CIEEM)

It would be advantageous if you also had the following:

  • one or more protected species licences e.g. GCN, bat or dormouse

This is a permanent position, with a working split between our Guildford office, home and on-site work.
