Are you an ecologist with a passion for wildlife and looking for a seasonal role?

If so, you could be just the person we need to join the established and successful SWT Ecology Services

Seasonal Ecologist

A consultant ecologist’s role is to balance the objectives of developers with the needs of the environment.  SWT Ecology Services is an advocate for protecting key environmental assets, whilst at the same time being a facilitator of development that improves the quality of life for local communities.  SWT Ecology Services manages the challenge of reconciling the two and sees each project as an opportunity to achieve the best possible outcome for both parties. 

The role

The Seasonal Ecologist role is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to kick-start their ecological consultancy career.  The role is varied and will take you throughout Surrey, and beyond, working on a diverse portfolio of projects, including large infrastructure projects, Local Planning Authorities and private home-owners.  You will be surveying for a range of species groups including bats, great crested newts, reptiles, hazel dormouse and supporting habitat surveys.

The seasonal ecologist position will ideally start in February 2019, with a position also available from April 2019.  Positions will run until October 2019.

Your skills

You will have some demonstrable ecology surveying experience and be ready to travel and work flexible hours.  Ideally, you will have a CSCS card.  Given the role involves travelling around the county, you will need to have a valid UK driver’s licence and access to your own transport.  The salary will be based on your experience.

SWT Ecology Services

SWT Ecology Services has a dynamic and supportive team of experienced ecologists.  We are a fully owned subsidiary of Surrey Wildlife Trust and our office is in Chobham, adjacent to the Chobham Common SAC, SSSI and NNR.  We are committed to SWT’s mission to restore nature across our county, creating a Living Landscape for all to enjoy.

If this is the role for you:

Please send your CV and cover letter to Gabbie Graham, MD of SWT Ecology Services gabrielle.graham@Surreywt.org.uk  01483 795440.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 8th February 2019, with interviews likely to be held during the week beginning 11th February 2019.
