A unique opportunity has arisen for a motivated Senior or Principal Ecological consultant to join a small but fast growing ecology team to strengthen their service offering in the London region.

In joining this expanding ecology team, you will have lots of scope to shape the projects that you work on, with considerable project management responsibilities supported by the regional lead.

In this role, you will be surveying and mitigating works regarding protected species as well as undertaking and writing scoping, Phase 1 habitat reports and developing ecological management plans for planning. If you have a passion for ecology, GIS or conservation and have demonstrable ecological experience within a consultancy environment then we'd love to hear from you. Alongside the fieldwork, you will play a key role in supporting the Team Lead Ecologist in growing the London team. As an experienced consultant you will have the autonomy to work on key elements of project management including reviewing reports as well producing tenders, client liaison, financial management and project programming.

  • Degree in a relevant scientific degree (ecology, biology, environmental science or similar)
  • At least ACIEEM (MCIEEM desirable)
  • Excellent report writing skills
  • Possess sound knowledge of UK wildlife legislation and planning policy

  • Hold a European protected species licence for bats and experience with EPSM licence preparation and delivery (desirable)
  • Experience/knowledge of green infrastructure and working with urban biodiversity (desirable)
  • Must be motivated, outgoing and hardworking!

This opportunity would suit a Senior Ecologist who is looking to take a step up into a managerial position, but with considerable training and support from an established and friendly team. Alongside a competitive salary, the role offers a substantial training budget and support in developing your skills and CPD!

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.
