Natalie Evans

Natalie is an ecologist, masters graduate and Natural England licenced bat worker.

Natalie worked at Arbtech for over a year as a sub-contractor and for a short while before that, as a trainee/intern, before being selected from over fifty applicants for a full-time role, doing the job she loves, on the testimony of her work quality from several of her now colleagues, including partner in crime for the 2013 bat survey season, Craig Williams.

Hailing from Chichester, Natalie is well placed to deliver a range of work, from phase 1 habitat to species-specific surveys for development sites large and small – and as the newest member of the team, has done us proud by keeping up our 100% local authority acceptance record for survey reports.

An avid bird watcher, in her spare time Natalie likes to read about and watch programming about British birds and wildlife, as well as being an active member of several volunteer organisations including he RSPB and WWT. How does she fit it all in?

Robert Oates, founder and managing director says:

When I called to chat about offering her the role, she told me she accepted before I could finish the first sentence! This infectious eagerness spills over into everything she does for our customers and is probably the reason she gets rave reviews from them. Keep up the great work, Nat!
