SENIOR ECOLOGIST
Cardiff- based

This is a full-time, permanent post.

We are a busy, well-established ecological consultancy operating mainly in the southern half of Wales, 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 capabilities including good botanical and habitat survey skills (ideally to NVC level) as well as proven protected fauna skills. 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.

Candidates need to be able-bodied and fit, with 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 occasionally work away from home. The office is friendly, relaxed and well-equipped, and the post provides generous holiday, training and other benefits.

Competitive salary available to the right candidate.
