About The Role

Are you a fisheries professional who possesses knowledge of freshwater ecosystems in the UK? Are you looking for a role with autonomy, where you can support others and coordinate project work? Are you at a point in your career where you are looking for more client contact, allowing you to build relationships and understand their requirements firsthand?

Due to recent spate of contract wins we are looking for a Principal Freshwater Fisheries Consultant to support a small team in delivering a wide range of work, from supporting wider colleagues writing fish chapters for EIA’s through to work helping with fish passage. As you grow into the role you will manage your own portfolio of projects, including with multiple teams, across different locations. You will have line management of a team of consultants and have responsibility for quality of the work delivered by the team. You will be seen by the wider freshwater team as the technical lead for fisheries ecology, providing expertise, advice and guidance to colleagues and clients. You will be developing your own client network and actively winning new work. 

To apply for this role you will need:
  • A professional track record in fisheries ecology and ecological assessment, gained from a environmental consultancy
  • Excellent understanding of fisheries ecology and assessment with relevant commercial awareness.
  • Detailed knowledge and understanding of policy/legislation relevant to fisheries ecology monitoring and assessment.
  • Prior experience in organising and coordinating fisheries surveys and the ability to mentor/guide others.

You will be offered the chance to work on a variety of projects, many of our employees have worked on projects that have been of personal interest to them. We match this with a commitment to continuous development and learning to support your career. We also offer benefits to look after you, from private medical insurance for all employees, access to mental health first aiders and comprehensive income protection if you cannot work. We also offer superb flexible working options, balancing work with your life.

Next steps

We are focused on creating a diverse and inclusive team. If you can’t tick every box on our job description, then we are still keen to hear from you and are open to supporting your development. That may be working part time or supporting you to gain experience in a specific area – we are a growing company and are able to adapt roles to reflect individual skills.

If you think you have what it takes to join our fast-growing business, then please apply immediately on our website. All we need some basic information and your CV, we will review all applications quickly and will respond to all applications.
