Footprint Ecology is a specialist consultancy carrying out work for Government Agencies (e.g. Natural England, Forestry Commission), Local Authorities and NGOs including Wildlife Trusts, RSPB and National Trust. We undertake a varied range of conservation related projects involving applied ecological research, visitor surveys, recreation strategies, Habitats Regulations Assessments, land management advice, strategic mitigation schemes for designated sites and ecological survey work. 


We currently have a vacancy that offers an exciting opportunity to work on ecological and access related projects on some of the most important nature conservation sites in the country. We are seeking an experienced individual, happy working on a varied mix of projects, able to produce tenders, manage contracts, write reports and present complex information.  We require someone who shares our values and will work well in a team.

  • recreation management
  • facilitation and stakeholder engagement
  • land management (e.g. management planning)
  • botanical survey work, including vegetation communities and habitats.


Please note that Footprint Ecology does not undertake protected species surveys for developers and is not looking for an ecologist who specialises solely in this work area.
