SWT Ecology Services is an ecological consultancy fully owned by Surrey Wildlife Trust.  We play a vital role in climate change resilience and aim 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

We are looking for an experienced project manager to support our team of ecologists.  

You will be responsible for delivering projects throughout the entire project life-cycle; liaising with clients, stakeholders and subject matter experts.  You will be holding the team and sub-contractors to account on delivery, quality, time and costs as well as reporting against milestones, financials and resourcing.  Your project portfolio will be diverse, and may include large infrastructure projects, housing developments and private home-owners.  

You will be supporting the Managing Director on completing pre-qualification questionnaires and responding to tender opportunities. 

This is an office-based role at our HQ in Pirbright, but will also involve site visits.

Ideally you will be able to start in early March 2021.  This is a permanent full time role, however part-time roles will also be considered. 

We operate a flexi policy and aim to provide a good work/life balance which can incorporate some home working whilst having an interesting and challenging working environment. 

Your skills

You will have demonstrable experience in project management, managing multiple projects simultaneously and have experience in the construction and/or planning sectors. 

You must be ready to travel, as required, to attend site meetings so a valid UK driver’s licence is essential and be able to work flexible hours.  The salary will be based on your experience.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities. 

We are committed to offering an interview to all candidates that meet the essential criteria for the post.  Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible.

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 Pirbright, although remote working will be possible.  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 a completed application form to Gabbie Graham, MD of SWT Ecology Services swtes.recruitment@surreywt.org.uk.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 15th January 2021.  Interviews will be held remotely so you will need access to Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
