Ecological Consultant - Southampton

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Ecological Consultant to join an award-winning environmental consultancy on the South Coast. Our client provides high quality ecological and environmental consultancy services and solutions to clients across a broad variety of industries and sectors.

This is a hands-on position involving all aspects of ecological consultancy such as carrying out on-site duties e.g. carrying out ecological surveys and site supervision. You will also be required to complete office-based duties such as compiling reports and desktop studies. Ideal candidates will therefore be equally comfortable in the field as they are with completing desk-based tasks.

Essential Experience & Qualifications

* At least one degree in Ecology or another relevant discipline

* A minimum of 3 years' experience in ecological consultancy

* At least one protected species licence (ideal candidates will have two)

* CIEEM Membership

* Excellent survey skills (particularly Extended Phase 1 Habitat & Protected Species Surveys)

* Excellent communication skills (written and verbal)

* A willingness to work unsociable hours

* A full, clean UK driving licence and a vehicle

Demonstrable skills in a second discipline (e.g. landscape management/arboriculture) would also be highly advantageous to this role. Benefits include a competitive salary and bonus package and an exciting opportunity to become a key member of an expert consultancy. This role provides candidates with the opportunity to gain new skills through practical experience and advance their career within the ecological sector.
