Are you passionate about protected species? Are you crazy about client care? Do you love getting involved with exciting project teams that deliver good outcomes on development projects? Mad about mentoring others? You’ll fit right in.
Working in the ecology planning sector, this role will be to manage and deliver very complex projects from project inception and bidding stages through to the completion of planning materials, including Preliminary Ecology Appraisals, Ecological Assessments, Ecological Impact Assessments, Mitigation Strategies, Management Plans and Method Statements. You should also be proficient at scoping, designing and undertaking ecological surveys. We are looking for a person with a strong technical background who can be a technical lead for the team and nurture our Consultants and Graduates in the early steps in their careers.

Based in our London office, you’ll have access to our space in WeWork on the Southbank. From 1st June 2022 we’ll be trialling a company-wide 4-day working week for a period of six months, so it couldn’t be a better time to consider becoming part of the tribe.
