Are you an ecologist with a passion for wildlife and looking for a seasonal role? If so, you could be just the person we need to join our team

Short term contract (mid-April to mid-October), salary dependent on experience

We are seeking a motivated individual to join our established SWT Ecology Services team and contribute to the ongoing delivery of high quality ecological advice.

Educated to degree level, with a passion for wildlife conservation, you will be enthusiastic and well organised. The successful applicant will have some demonstrable field experience although training will be provided.

A full UK driving licence is necessary.

Surveys will include, but not be limited to bat dusk emergence/return to roost surveys, reptile presence/likely absence surveys, great created newt HSI, eDNA, presence/likely absence surveys and hazel dormouse surveys. You will need to be passionate about biodiversity enhancement and committed to providing ecological advice that supports the aims and objectives of Surrey Wildlife Trust.

Surrey Wildlife Trust is dedicated to protecting Surrey’s wildlife. SWT Ecology Services specialises in biodiversity protection, botanical and protected species surveys and habitat management plans. We have been providing expert advice to developers, local authorities, private landowners, corporates and conservation organisations for over 20 years.
