Job details

LUC is an award-winning environmental consultancy providing planning, impact assessment, landscape design and ecology services to a wide range of public and private sector clients.

With a track record of over 50 years and a team of over 125 skilled professionals, we bring a passion for the environment and a determination to achieve sustainable development on behalf of our clients.

We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of innovative thinking, successfully resolving even the most complex of issues. We care about the legacy we leave and hope to make a real difference through the work we do.

About the role:

LUC’s ecology team is growing; in 2018 we will provide support to a diverse portfolio of energy, transport, housing, and tourism projects, in locations ranging from the Hebrides to Central London. 

We require Ecology Fieldworkers to work full-time between April and September 2018 to support our Glasgow and London-based team.  You will help with the design and delivery of a range of ecological surveys, including Phase 1 Habitat and protected species. 

You will travel across the UK, and the nature of the role will require you to work anti-social hours and often work away from home.

This is an early career role and will offer an opportunity to experience the varied role of professional ecological consultancy.  You will work closely with established members of the team, learning about all aspects of the ecologist role while developing important skills in field survey and data management.

Salary:  £17,000 pa (plus London allowance where applicable).

About you:

You will have a degree in a relevant environmental discipline.  While protected species experience is preferred, you will receive full training, so a willingness to learn and explore professional ecology is of greater value.

You will:

  • Have a relevant undergraduate degree;
  • Have an understanding of protected species and the legislation relating to them;
  • Have a full driver’s licence;
  • Be a self-starter, capable of working alone or with minimal supervision, including in the field;
  • Be willing to work anti-social hours, particularly in support of bat surveys; and
  • Be willing to work away from home at locations across the UK.
