Senior Ecologist, Leicester.


Senior Ecologist Wanted – Leicester.


I am currently working with a UK established ecological consultancy in their search for new Senior Grade Ecologists across England. Our client is an award-winning consultancy that has just secured numerous large projects across the UK. This work has resulted in the need for planned growth across its offices across England. 


Salary - £28,000 to £36,000 (depending on qualifications and location) + Benefits.


Our client experienced its biggest and most successful year on record in 2017 and these new projects that have been secured pave the way for another record breaking year in 2018! This success has seen three of their existing offices moved to larger premises to facilitate growth within the business and the company now employs over 100 members of staff.

One of the roles my client is looking to fill is based in the Midlands, and our client is keen to hear from Senior Ecologists located, or looking to be located within the Leicester area (or surrounding region).  

You will join an existing Leicester unit and principally help the team manage their suite of major projects within the Midlands. The role will therefore involve a large degree of project, client and data management as well as field work.

Our client will suit Senior Ecologists who are ambitious and wish to fast track their careers. Opportunities for personal development are significant in association with these larger projects. 


Our client is particularly keen to hear from Senior Ecologists with the following qualities and experience:

·         At least 5 year’s professional ecological consultancy experience.

·         Full CIEEM membership.

·         Possession of at least one Natural England protected species licence.

·         Ability to conduct a variety of surveys including protected species and botanical surveys.

·         Full, clean UK driving licence.

·         Flexibility to work long hours and away from home at times.

·         Ambition to progress within a reputable organisation.

·         First class verbal and written communication skills.

·         Excellent report writing experience.

·         Project management experience – small and large projects.
