"At this company, employees come first. Every time. Ask the directors of the firm you work at currently, what's at heart of their business' strategy and success, and they start talking about client relationships. What they should be talking about is employee relationships."

Rob Oates, Director

Why Work Here?

Good question. Let's try to answer that!

Look on the web sites of most of our peers and you'll notice almost everyone calls themselves a 'leading' consultancy these days. And yet, very little differentiates them from one another.

They all claim to be masters of a dozen or more disciplines, work in every region (even globally), for all types of clients, and in all sectors. Often, the reality couldn't be further from the truth.

So, here's a refreshingly honest outlook. We're actually different...

We almost exclusively serve the planning and development sector. We only undertake arboricultural and ecological consultancy.

We pretty much only work in England and Wales. We don't market for work - the work comes to us (the majority of our work is repeat business). We frequently refuse to work for clients big and small that try to cut corners, or who don't appeal to our sense of fair play.

How does this make a tangible difference to the place you work?...

Our focus and concentration on a few niches allows us to be a genuine leader in those sectors. And that's good for business. We're solidly profitable and not afraid to talk about it. Profit isn't a dirty word. Growing our profits allows us to provide you with opportunities that are very difficult to come by elsewhere.

Unlimited training opportunities; overtime for evening surveys; and in-house training landholdings are all good examples of how working for Arbtech is very unique. The company’s business model sets it apart from its competitors – this is challenging but ultimately very rewarding".Chris Formaggia

"Working for Arbtech has so many benefits. I have learnt so much on the job through a diversity of field survey work and desk based assessment, and also through our unlimited CPD budget. I love being able to manage my own time and work from home, and to be given the opportunity to create and maintain professional relationships with clients in my local area and further afield. Every day is different, and I meet some fantastic people and visit some incredible places. The Arbtech team are a lovely bunch and we genuinely enjoy our time together when we meet up for staff socials throughout the year. I honestly can’t imagine working anywhere else".Natalie Evans
