Land Use Field Surveyor (Temporary – June until September 2018)


Location: Eastern England and NE Scotland


JBA Consulting have been successful in being appointed by Eurostat to carry out LUCAS throughout the UK and Ireland in 2018. The purpose of LUCAS is to collect data on land cover / land use and agri-environmental data by the field observation of thousands of survey points (15,000 in the UK and Ireland).  All the observations will be recorded via the use of our own field data collection system GISmapp, with information then being input into the LUCAS Data Management Tool software for quality control and processing. The survey will also incorporate specialist modules of soil sampling of one in ten points, and a test module of a grassland survey of a few selected points.


JBA are therefore looking to recruit several experienced environmental surveyors for the field survey during the Summer of 2018.  You must have an education in geography, environmental sciences, biology, agriculture or another relevant field.  We are looking for suitable staff located specifically along Eastern England as well as the NE of Scotland.  


Field Surveyor Essential Requirements:


  • Suitably qualified, as described above
  • Previous relevant field work experience
  • Excellent IT skills and experienced in the use of web based applications
  • Sufficiently fit and healthy to undertake fieldwork for up to 8 hours a day
  • Valid licence for driving a private vehicle in the UK
  • Ability to work/stay away from home when required
  • Ability to work alone, safely and on own initiative


A key factor is that there will be considerable amounts of lone working, in some cases in remote areas.  To ensure surveyor safety during work, careful risk assessments and safe systems of work will be prepared and must be followed. Appropriate equipment will be provided to assist in surveyor’s safety.


The field survey will involve considerable amounts of driving.  Surveyors will be supplied with a hired vehicle and reimbursed fuel costs directly, but they must be an experienced driver, with at least one year’s driving experience.


Surveyors will initially be based at home, and will work in their general local area, but working / staying away from home will be required as the survey progresses.
