An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Natural Capital Consultant to join a team of natural capital and strategic biodiversity specialists within a value-driven independent environmental consultancy.

The company has a wealth of experience across a range of sectors and through all stages of planning, development and corporate sustainability. With a deep understanding of the built, natural and social environment, they have an excellent reputation for creating innovative solutions for integrating biodiversity within the built form.

This might involve the use of metrics such as the Biodiversity Metric 3.1 or the Environmental Benefits from Nature (EBN) tool, alongside myriad other tools and assessment methodologies.

Projects may involve the creation of nature positive strategies for real estate managers or biodiversity and carbon enhancement plans for landscape management. Every project the natural capital team work on aims to deliver gains for nature, carbon and people, alongside all other ecosystem services, leveraged using a wide array of financial and regulatory drivers.

Alongside managing projects, the successful candidate would be responsible for tender production, client liaison, financial management and project programming. Undertaking technical reviews, providing outward facing support and inputting into business generation can also be expected.

The successful candidate needs to demonstrate that they are:

  • Ideally 3+ years of professional experience
  • Degree in a relevant scientific degree (ecology, biology, environmental science or similar)
  • MCIEEM and CEnv/CEcol (desirable)
  • Excellent understanding of the concepts of natural capital and ecosystem service valuation, and the ways in which these concepts can be leveraged for the betterment of nature
  • Good understanding of the concepts of natural capital and ecosystem services
  • Highly organised and motivated individual with a desire to learn new skills

  • Enthusiastic about nature conservation

Land Securities Group Plc.

One of our clients, LandSec, are the clever people behind Girls Can Do It Too, an initiative designed to encourage girls to consider a career in construction. Currently, only 11% of the construction workforce are female, and LandSec are attempting to increase this number by providing education and engagement projects and workshops for girls aged 11-13. Featuring workshops on demolition and tower building, as well as challenging the girls to design a planning project of their own (with a focus on budgeting and environmental considerations), LandSec have proven their dedication to addressing the need for diversity in this very male dominated industry. Ruth assists the project by sharing her fascinating insights into the industry and is even on the project judging panel!

In partnership with Urban Land Institute we are able to play an imperative role in creating a larger and more diverse pool of candidates within the planning & property professions. Working in schools we take part in the Urban Plan Educational workshops programme, which has now reached more than 2,500 pupils in 100 schools since its launch. Alongside more than 200 industry volunteers engaged across the country, we provide invaluable industry & careers advice to students while guiding them through their workshops and helping judge their presentations.
