As a key member of our Environment team, you will play an integral role in the implementation of our Environmental Strategy. As Ecologist you will carry out ecological studies across a range of projects and environments to identify and advise how together we can balance the needs of our projects with those of the environment.
Our client is also a leading Arboriculture and Forestry Contractor, with well over a decade of experience and expertise in the forestry sector. We have forged a strong industry reputation and we believe we have an unrivalled skill set and peerless knowledge of forestry work at all levels.
They have seen recent significant growth and are proud to be a Principal Contractor and Framework Contractor of NWR, as well as having some exciting projects underway in woodland management, timber harvesting, rail and civils works across the country.

About the role:
This is a hands-on role in which you will conduct ecological studies and impact assessments across a range of projects and environments to identify and advise how together we can balance the needs of our projects with those of the environment.

You will also be highly organised, have excellent analytical skills with experience in data collation and report-writing, as well as a member of CIEEM (or we will support you to achieve this).
Naturally, you will be field-based for a significant amount of your time, so you must be happy to work in all that the British weather has to offer! Based in Hampshire and conducting field work across the southern region, the successful candidate must be flexible in their approach to work, have a full driving license and be willing to travel.
Working hours: 40 hours per week. This role will require some out of hours working associated with ecological surveys, including weekends, evenings and overnight.
