Seasonal Ecological Survey Assistants

April – September inclusive

Looking for work experience in ecology for your CV? Are you an experienced/ licensed bat surveyor with availability?

Can you assist with surveys (including evenings/ early mornings) over the summer? If so, we would like to hear from you!

Each year, Johns Associates relies on a pool of survey assistants to help deliver our busy survey schedule. Ideally, you can commit to joining us on a regular basis, particularly on weeknights/ early mornings during April to September.

Full training from experienced ecologists will be provided. We expect a high standard of work and competence in producing clear and thorough results. Applications from licensed bat workers or experienced bat surveyors are particularly welcomed.

You should be able to commute to our offices in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire for onward travel to survey sites locally and across adjoining counties. You may be required to travel further afield and stay in accommodation overnight. Therefore, having your own transport and being a confident driver with a full driving licence is essential.

This role is ideal if you have a keen interest in ecology and are looking to increase your knowledge and gain valuable work experience in this field. No previous experience is required; however, this would be an advantage. Applications from graduates with a relevant degree, CIEEM membership and previous voluntary or work experience would be looked upon favourably.

Rates of pay are hourly and subject to experience. Mileage (excluding commuting) and expenses are paid.

We will hold a selection day in late February/ early March which will include an element of training in H&S, bat and GCN survey techniques, as well as group discussions and informal interviews with some members of the ecology team.
