Are you the Head of Ecology we’re looking for?

The Opportunity

A rare opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, ambitious and talented ecologist to lead, develop, grow and manage our Ecology team. The right individual will be able to build and develop new and existing client relationships and take responsibility for the delivery of complex projects. This role is a fantastic opportunity to realise your ambitions and join the senior management team reporting directly to the Chairman.

Who we Are

JBA is a multi-disciplinary practice comprising three busy departments – ecology, landscape (both planning & design sections) and arboriculture. Whilst varied schemes are commissioned on a continuous basis, we specialise in residential, leisure, education, regeneration schemes (both urban and rural), green infrastructure and renewable energy schemes.

Whilst valuing our existing client base, we like variety and are always looking for new opportunities.

We offer our clients a truly service orientated approach, which we have combined with cutting edge innovation and consistency of delivery, to ensure steady growth throughout our 29 years.

Our Requirements

To be successful in the role we would love to hear from individuals with the following profile:

  • Experience of managing a team, possibly from an Ecology consultancy;
  • Experience and interest in lead generation and business development;
  • Excellent project management experience;
  • Mitigation experience;
  • Full CIEEM membership;
  • Protected species licences particularly bats, GCN and dormice and a sound, practical knowledge of UK fauna and flora;
  • Excellent all-round communication and report writing skills, assimilating ecological data and presenting relevant information well;
  • An enthusiastic and positive disposition, with the ability to engage well with clients and colleagues alike.

We will offer an attractive and competitive salary for the right individual including a generous benefits package.
