Description  

A consultant ecologist’s role is 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

You will be supporting a team of expert principal ecologists, working on a diverse portfolio of projects, including large infrastructure projects, housing developments, and private home-owners.  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. You will lead teams on a range of surveys, prepare high quality technical reports, mitigation licences, precautionary methods of working and supervising works. 

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 whilst having an interesting and challenging working environment. 

Your skills

You will have experience in undertaking and delivering Preliminary Ecological Appraisals, Ecological Impact Assessments and protected species and habitat surveys.  You will have demonstrable experience in all stages of project management from inception to delivery and invoicing; client and stakeholder liaison; and peer reviewing reports.   You must have a good knowledge of legislation and planning policy.

You must be ready to travel and work flexible hours and ideally have a CSCS card.  Given the role involves travelling around the county, you will need to have a valid UK driver’s licence and access to your own transport.  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.
