Senior Ecologist

Senior Ecologist (Permanent, Full-time)

Based in Penarth, near Cardiff, South Wales

We are a busy, well-established ecological consultancy operating mainly in South Wales and the west of England, offering a wide range of ecological, protected species and EcIA services, mainly in connection with planning and development.

We require an enthusiastic, independent and flexible senior to join our team.  You will need a good bioscience degree, plus a minimum of 3 years relevant full-time professional experience, preferably at senior level. Above all, you will need excellent field skills including good botanical and habitat survey skills (ideally to NVC level) as well as proven protected fauna survey expertise.  A bat licence would be highly desirable.  Familiarity with the relevant UK legislative, policy and planning framework in relation to development is required, and you will also need excellent report-writing, communication, project management and office IT skills.

There is potential of promotion to Principal Ecologist in the medium term, initially as maternity cover but with the possibility of permanency.

Candidates require a full, clean driving licence, and will need to provide their own car (business mileage is refunded).  The work will involve some unsocial hours and travelling, and possibly some work away from home.  The office is friendly, relaxed and well-equipped, and the post provides generous holiday, training and other benefits.  The position is offered as a full time post only.

Competitive salary available to the right candidate.
