We require an enthusiastic and talented Field Ecologist to join our team to help deliver our portfolio Ecological Clerk of Works projects on wind farm sites.

• Undertaking site inspections/audits to monitor the performance of construction works
• Reporting on compliance with consent conditions
• Liaising with statutory regulators on behalf of the client
• Providing guidance and advice to contractors and the client during the construction
• Input to weekly and monthly ECoW reports
• Data entry (Excel) and digitisation (QGIS)
The successful candidate will meet the following criteria:
• Degree or equivalent experience in an environmental field (Ecology, Zoology, Environmental Management)
• Experience of undertaking ecology field surveys or ECoW roles
• Strong interpersonal skills and a flexible and proactive approach to work
• Strong IT skills including, MS Word and Excel
• Valid UK driving licence (manual is essential)
• Willingness to travel and work away from home
• Willingness to support other disciplines within MacArthur Green (such as ecology, water quality monitoring and peat) when required

We devote time and resource to supporting and developing our team. We offer solid training and career development opportunities, monthly walk and talk catch ups with your line manager, and annual appraisals. Depending on your passion to progress and the time you have available, we will work with you to develop your specialism and valuable sector knowledge.
