The Principal Consultant

Up to £50k depending upon experience

After 10 years of continued success and expansion, we’ve grown to the point where we need your help.

In response, we’ve created a new, high-profile role at Arbtech: “The Principal”.

We created the role so that while we continue to accelerate the growth of our business, at the same time, we want to make our processes and work flow even more robust, technically rigourous and respected. For our clients, colleagues and industry alike, we need a Principal who can educate, inspire and lead.

What are we looking for?

We aren’t just looking for integrity, intelligence and energy.

We aren’t just looking for an experienced, highly qualified, authoritative ecologist.

We’re looking for the best. A superstar.

What can we offer you?

You are right to ask why you should apply to us.

How about this? There are a lot of (very generic looking) ‘principal ecologist’ vacancies at various global, multi-disciplinary consultancies right now. They all pay roughly the same and other than the name on the door, it’s the same job in the same giant corporate machine. However, if you are the right person for our business then we can promise you that the autonomy, benefits and opportunity are without parallel.

Your application

Apply in writing by e-mail to Robert Oates via [email protected]. Include a covering letter, extended CV and anything else you feel supports your application.

In your covering letter, please don’t just tell us about what you’ve done. Tells us your story; who you are, where you’re going to take us and how you’re going to do it. Do your homework. Tell us about the big opportunities we’re missing and how your unique skills can be leveraged to help us capitalise on those opportunities together. These are the things that will land you an interview.

You should provide details of any relevant (work only) social media profiles, such as LinkedIn or twitter. It would also be advantageous for you to include links to any other publications, online works and even blogs that you contribute to.

If you are successful and we offer you the role, you will need to provide three references that are happy to be contacted by telephone.

Deadline: 25.09.2014.

To be considered for the role

Required (advantageous)

  • Relevant postgraduate qualification e.g. masters degree (PhD)
  • Full member of CIEEM (Fellow)
  • Chartered Environmentalist (Chartered Ecologist)
  • Senior consultancy role for at least three years (principal, five to ten years)
  • EPS licence for bats (bats, GCN and other species)
  • Demonstrable experience of coaching and mentoring junior colleagues
  • Comfortable with public speaking and leading training/CPD
  • Ruthless attention to detail
  • Flawless written communication
  • Solid financial literacy and robust general management skills

The role may be home or office based and we are highly flexible reference location.

What happens next?

We will acknowledge your application upon receipt and inform you of the outcome within one week of the deadline.

Candidates successful at application screening will be invited to participate in further stages, which will include telephone and face-to-face interviews.

No agencies at this time.
