Hartlepool is a vibrant and energetic town with growing prospects. As an authority we want to make Hartlepool the best it possibly can be and want dedicated, driven and committed staff to help us achieve that.
We are seeking an experienced Ecologist, looking for a new career development opportunity.
The borough is bordered on the east by the North Sea with much of the coast recognised as internationally important for its bird species and protected as a Special Protection Area site. Inland is a rolling agricultural landscape interspersed with a number of small and fragmented, but nevertheless diverse and important, wildlife habitats including 6 Local Nature Reserves and 52 non-statutory Local Sites.
