CGO Ecology is a consultancy with a small team of staff, and a wide network of subcontractors and associates. We need a skilled and licensed bat ecologist, with experience on EPS licences, to join our Dorset team. A range of ecological expertise and licences would be a bonus.
The position is home-based (Dorset/Hants area), and involves travelling to jobs within the local area, but also more widely, sometimes with overnight stays. You would coordinate and conduct surveys and mitigation for bats and other protected species, write reports and licence applications, and deal effectively with clients, colleagues and stakeholders. You would need excellent written and verbal communication skills, be physically able, and prepared to work flexible and often unsociable hours with a flexi-time/TOIL system. You would need to be a pragmatic self-starter, who uses their initiative to resolve problems.
Desirable (non-essential) experience/skills
Salary up to £30k, possibly higher for the right candidate. Working week 40 hours with a flexi-time/TOIL system. We reimburse reasonable expenses at cost, and mileage at 45p. We provide relevant PPE and survey equipment, pension, regular CPD/training, 24 days’ discretionary leave plus statutory holidays. We operate an Equal Opportunities policy.
To apply, send a brief email to Chris Gleed-Owen firstname.lastname@example.org, attaching a CV focusing on relevant experience, licences and qualifications. The post will be advertised until filled, and is likely to start in April 2017. Agencies need not apply.
