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.  Our consultant ecologists balance the objectives of developers with the needs of the environment.

cycle, work closely with the Operational Manager, Managing Director and Project Managers

to ensure project milestones are being met, liaise with clients, stakeholders, and subject

matter experts, develop our social media profile.

These are permanent, full time roles but part-time options will also be considered.  We operate a flexi and hybrid working policy and aim to provide a good work/life balance whilst having an interesting and challenging working environment. 

The salary offered to successful applicants will be agreed based on qualifications and experience and will form part of a benefits package including: above minimum pension contributions, life assurance of 4 x salary, employee support scheme, 22 days holiday, flexible working policy and a bonus scheme paid three times a year.

Your skills

It is essential that you have a background in administration, project management and report writing within a busy working environment including the use of MS Office packages such as Word, Excel, Teams and Outlook.  Experience collecting, managing and analysis of data would be advantageous together with some knowledge of social media platforms.  You will need to be personable, flexible and motivated to manage your workload to a very high standard.

Please ensure that you have read the full job profile before applying so that you can complete your application to demonstrate your relevant skills and experience.
