CSA Environmental is recruiting for an Assistant Ecologist to join our Hertfordshire Office. The position will run until the end of October in the first instance.

You will be thrust straight into our busy team of ecologists, where you will have the opportunity to gain experience with all aspects of our consultancy work. You will work alongside more senior ecologists, assisting with surveys and supporting them with preparation work, data analysis and reporting. Flexibility, enthusiasm and a strong work ethic are essential.

You must be able to demonstrate all of the following:

  • evidence of a genuine passion for wildlife
  • practical experience of conservation/field survey work, including at least one season of experience within an ecological consultancy role
  • a first or upper second class degree in a relevant ecology/biology based subject
  • excellent written and oral communication skills
  • a full driving licence and car ownership

This is a fantastic opportunity for a bright, conscientious and highly motivated individual to demonstrate their ability, gain valuable experience and potentially to carve out a longer-term role. However, we will be looking for an exceptional candidate who can point to a number of existing field skills, active and current experience in the ecology sector and a strong commitment to a career in the consultancy sector.
