Peak Ecology Ltd

Graduate Ecologist/Field Ecologist – Derbyshire

Peak Ecology Ltd is a highly regarded, specialist ecological consultancy based in Bakewell, Derbyshire and working across the country. We are a friendly and professional team with a diverse client list, currently looking to recruit the following positions.

Graduate Ecologist Salary £15,000 pro rata (seven month contract)

The successful candidate will embark on our seven month internship, a structured training programme of professional development. This opportunity is aimed at highly motivated individuals, with an ecology related qualification but no previous work-based ecological consultancy experience, who are aiming to gain their first step in to ecological consultancy.

If you have a genuine and active interest in ecology please apply; you will be expected to demonstrate this interest and should bear it in mind when applying. If you have experience in consultancy then the internship is not for you.

Field Ecologists Salary £17,500 - £20,000 pro rata (six month contract)

As a Field Ecologist in Peak Ecology you will be a key member of the team helping to deliver a range of projects across the country.

This position is aimed at enthusiastic individuals, typically with one or two season’s experience, looking to develop as ecologists and establish themselves in a consultancy career. To this end you will be working in a supportive environment with a team of highly skilled ecologists, work will include all aspects of consultancy and you will have opportunities to further your own skills. Having a protected species licence would be advantageous.

General Info

For both positions we offer 25 days annual leave and statutory public holidays; on a pro-rata basis. Both positions are fixed-term temporary contracts in the first instance and may be made permanent subject to performance and company workload going forwards. The successful candidates will be expected to have their own vehicle and to work away from home for short periods.
