Hampshire County Council is looking for an experienced ecologist to join their highly regarded Ecology Team at a time of exciting development for the authority's services, as the Council continues to expand its provision of in-house specialist environmental services across a varied multi-million-pound capital programme of development and improvement schemes.

Our expansion gives an innovative and enthusiastic professional ecologist an opportunity to take a leading role in ensuring development within Hampshire meets the highest standard and contributes to the conservation of biodiversity. You will take a lead in the planning functions and development schemes of the County Council and other public sector organisations whilst maintaining the work/life balance you have always wanted.

You will use your specialist knowledge to design and implement ecological assessments (including desk- and field-based assessments, Environmental Statements and Habitats Regulations Assessments), design innovative solutions to mitigate ecological impacts and ensure that ecological enhancements are embedded within development schemes. The role also includes responsibility for providing expert advice to the County Council and district/borough planning authorities on planning applications and local plan work.

You should have an appropriate degree/professional qualification and relevant experience, including demonstrable expertise in survey design and programming, ecological impact assessment and mitigation strategies. A confident understanding of planning process and environmental legislation is essential.
