Place Services is a multi-disciplinary practice within Essex County Council, with expertise in ecology, arboriculture, landscape, countryside management, urban design, planning, archaeology and built heritage. We provide environmental assessment, planning, design, and management services to the public sector. We specialise in partnership working with local planning authorities in Essex, London, the East of England, South-East and East Midlands. Our purpose is to support the public sector to deliver sustainable development, enhance and conserve the environment, and achieve well-designed places.

Following a decade of growth, we are looking to appoint an Assistant Ecological Consultant to improve the capacity of our ecology team as part of our growth and development plans.  You will be trained to support the delivery of our ecological services, which include the provision of planning advice to local authorities, ecological assessment, species survey and mitigation projects.  The workload is varied and stimulating and you will benefit from the diverse experience of the existing team of 13 ecologists, as well as insight into other technical specialisms. 

We are looking for a graduate, or somebody with equivalent practical experience, with knowledge of best practice survey methodologies, policy and legislation.  You will be able to communicate effectively and organise your time well.  For the right candidate, we are able to offer a generous benefits package and personal development in both formal and informal settings.
