About us:

Greengage is an award winning multidisciplinary environmental consultancy known for providing innovative and bespoke ecological solutions. We have a wealth of experience across a range of sectors and through all stages of planning, development and corporate sustainability. Our discipline is based on a deep understanding of the built, natural and social environment.

Our consultants gain experience working on a wide range of developments, providing baseline surveys to facilitate planning applications, and working with development teams throughout the design and implementation process to create innovative solutions for integrating biodiversity within the built form.

We are currently looking to recruit a Senior Ecological Consultant to join our multidisciplinary team in London and assist with the delivery of a diverse range of projects. This will include project management and technical input on Preliminary Ecological Appraisals, Protected Species Surveys, Ecological Management Plans and Ecological Impact Assessments.

The role would entail management of ecology projects; many of which would involve multiple protected species in complex scenarios. Alongside fieldwork, the successful candidate would be responsible for tender production, client liaison, financial management and project programming. There would also be opportunities to support on unique urban biodiversity projects, such as bespoke ecological monitoring of living roofs and green infrastructure strategy production.

  • Hold a European protected species licence for bats and experience with EPSM licence preparation and delivery (desirable); and
  • Experience/knowledge of green infrastructure and working with urban biodiversity (desirable).

The full-time role is available to start from May 2019. The successful candidate would be based in our London office (between Waterloo and London Bridge) although the role will involve a large amount of travel (mostly within London and the south-east).
