How would you like to lead a team of surveyors in the Scottish uplands this summer?

We are looking for experienced field ecologists to lead survey teams in upland Scotland. Survey teams will be located in Angus, Inner Hebrides, Moray and Perthshire. Applicants can specify their preferred base location, but travel between sites is required.

These positions are available from early-April until the end of August, however this may be extended for the right candidate. Two-day residential interviews will be held late February in Moray, Scotland. If you cannot attend an interview at that time, please make it clear on your application form.


The successful candidate must have excellent communication skills and a proven record of leading a project or managing a team. Project management skills can be from a field other than ecology. The candidate must also have experience of undertaking at least one of the following: ornithological surveys (Brown and Shepherd an advantage), habitat impact assessments or butterfly surveys, preferably in an upland environment. A decent level of physical fitness, ability to read a map and navigate in upland terrain and a willingness to lead a team to complete surveys in remote locations are essential. A full, clean driving license (preferably with off-road driving experience) and first aid qualification are desirable.

Ideally the candidate would have experience of using Microsoft Word & Excel and GIS packages. They would also have a proven record of delivering concise reports to tight deadlines. It would also be advantageous to have CIEEM Membership and a mountain leader qualification (or similar).

We expect applicants to share our passion for ecology, be self-motivated and reliable. They must also have a flexible approach to field work in a challenging but rewarding upland environment. Candidates need to be confident leading a team in remote setting and also happy to live with the team members. Free accommodation will be provided during the field season.
