Baker Consultants

Ornithologist / Senior consultant vacancy

Are you a brilliant birder? Are you ambitious, motivated and looking for a career path that will establish you as a national expert in your chosen field ? If so, we would like to hear from you.

With an increasing workload in renewable energy and other sectors, Baker Consultants is looking for an ornithologist to join our team in Derbyshire.

Baker Consultants was established in 2009 and quickly built up a broad client base, working throughout the UK on a range of residential, commercial and energy projects, in both the terrestrial and marine environments. We have a reputation for innovation, particularly in the area of bioacoustics – which we are keen to develop further. This is backed up by scientific research, funded and carried out through connections with some of the UK’s leading universities.

For this role, you must have great field skills, being able to quickly and accurately identify birds by sight and sound, particularly using VP and CBC methods. Experience with other species groups, and Phase 1 habitat surveys and marine surveys, would also be a considerable advantage.

You will have the ability to produce high quality reports and contribute to EIAs. The aptitude to work with clients and consultees, and manage your own projects is essential. At least 3 years experience in ecological consultancy would be ideal, but we are also keen to hear from those who combine an academic background with commercial awareness.

We offer a commensurate salary with profit share, along with a pleasant work environment on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Above all, we offer a role that encourages rapid career progression and the opportunity to contribute to the development of the profession.
