Senior Ecologists

The Ecology Partnership are currently looking for senior ecologists to join the team on a permanent basis at our head office in Leatherhead, Surrey or based within our smaller Eastbourne office. We are keen to hear from experienced senior level ecologists or experienced consultant level ecologists who are looking to make the next step in their career.

The role would involve managing and overseeing a wide variety of projects, both large and small in scale. Successful applicants will be able to manage projects from initial assessment to informing project design and developing appropriate mitigation, as well as writing protected species licence applications. The candidate will also be expected to undertake preliminary ecological appraisals, EcIAs, biodiversity net gain calculations and undertake a wide range of protected species survey work as required.

Ideally, candidates should hold at least two Natural England survey licences and should have CIEEM membership. Candidates must be a team player, with good organisational and communication skills, both verbal and written and also be willing to undertake night work and work unsociable hours when required. Candidates must have a full clean UK driving licence.

The post will offer a balance of field work and office work, with the role covering mainly the south east of England, although we do occasionally take on project work further afield.

At The Ecology Partnership we pride ourselves on our friendly, fun and supportive workplace and are looking for a committed and positive individual to join a tight-knit and hardworking team. We have a strong focus on personal development and offer in house and external training opportunities throughout the year. After rapid growth over the last 10 years, we are again looking to expand our team to meet growing demand for our services.

The Ecology Partnership will offer a competitive package to successful candidates.
