Ecology Jobs

Here at ECOSA we pride ourselves on the quality of our work and the professionalism of our staff. We are committed to supporting and developing our team members’ expertise so that they can deliver excellence in ecological services to our clients across the UK. We are always interested to receive Curricula Vitae from bright and friendly people with relevant ecological experience and qualifications at admin@ecosa.co.uk.

All opportunities are only open to direct applicants and not recruitment agencies.

 

Current opportunities:


Work Placement Scheme

We are looking for suitable candidates for our 2019 spring/summer work placement scheme. The scheme will start in mid-April and run to the end of October 2019. The placement is based at our head office in Hampshire.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain work experience with a leading UK ecological consultancy. Many of our work placements have secured employment with either ourselves or other ecological consultancies/multi-disciplinary companies.

Structured training will be offered as part of the placement and will cover field survey work including bat, great crested newt and reptile surveys, as well as office-based tasks such as ecological report writing, sound analysis and desk studies.

Successful candidates will receive a salary and are entitled to paid holiday and pension benefits.

The scheme is open to any student with a keen interest in ecology who is currently studying a related degree/masters, or a recent graduate in a related subject. You must be able to commit for the full duration of the summer survey season. Unfortunately, we cannot accept requests for short-term placements i.e. one to two weeks.

Our placements are predominantly field based. You will therefore need a full driving licence, be a confident driver and have your own transport. Field surveys are carried out across the South and further afield, sometimes involving overnight stays.

How to Apply

Please email your Curriculum Vitae, ensuring to highlight all relevant knowledge, experience and skills, and a covering letter explaining why you would like to undertake a work placement with ECOSA, for the attention of Alexandra Nicholls (Company Administrator) at admin@ecosa.co.uk.

Please let us know how you found out about this opportunity and title your email in the subject line 'Work Experience Scheme 2019'.


Summer Bat Surveyors

We are looking for assistant surveyors for the 2019 bat survey season.

Each year, ECOSA relies on a pool of skilled bat surveyors to help deliver our busy survey schedule. If you have a keen interest in ecology, are looking to increase your knowledge and gain valuable experience in this field of work and are available to undertake surveys during the summer months (evenings and early mornings), ECOSA would like to hear from you.

Full training from experienced ecologists will be provided. We look for a high standard of work and competence in producing clear and thorough results. Applications from licensed bat workers or experienced bat surveyors are particularly welcomed.

You will need to be available for dusk and dawn bat survey work and be based in Hampshire or the adjoining counties. You may be required to travel further afield for survey work and stay in accommodation overnight. Having your own transport and a full driving licence is therefore essential.

How to Apply

Please email your Curriculum Vitae, ensuring to highlight all relevant knowledge, experience and skills, and a covering letter with your likely availability during the summer survey season, for the attention of Alexandra Nicholls (Company Administrator) at admin@ecosa.co.uk. Please let us know how you found out about this opportunity and title your email in the subject line 'Bat Surveyors 2019'.

We aim to respond to applicants during January to March 2019. Successful candidates must be able to attend an evening training session at our head office in Hampshire on Tuesday 16th April 2019.

The closing date for this opportunity is Friday 5th April 2019.

 

Summer Field Surveyors

We are always pleased to hear from ecological field surveyors who would be able to assist with our project delivery over our busy summer survey season. We generally have ongoing projects requiring both survey work and translocation of a variety of protected species, including reptiles, great crested newt and hazel dormouse.

Full training from experienced ecologists will be provided. We look for a high standard of work and competence in producing clear and thorough results. Applications from experienced ecological field surveyors and freelance ecological subcontractors are also welcomed.

Work will likely be based around our offices in Hampshire and Gloucestershire, and the surrounding counties. You will need to be able to travel for survey/translocation works, and potentially stay in accommodation overnight. Having your own transport and a full driving licence is therefore essential.
