David subcontracted to Arbtech’s ecology team for two seasons, following his introduction to the business through our ASSET programme for graduates. He’s our third full-time hire, directly out of ASSET this year alone. David is an ecological consultant and specialises in bats.
Based in Stafford he covers most of the midlands, along with Leicester-based colleague, Matt Edwards. He’s really hit the ground running, and already expressed an interest in cross-training arboriculture… Perfect!
David was new to Arbtech in 2019; and was hired out of our 2018 ASSET ecology training programme.
Robert Oates, managing director says:
Dave was an awesome find. He was a stand-out student on our first ASSET class of 2018 (we run several each year) and absolutely aced our recruitment and selection process; not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination. Further, despite not having been here long (at the time of writing, 1 month), he’s already settled in brilliantly–Dave is a great cultural fit for the team, and clients love his pragmatism and responsiveness in equal measure. Better, he’s also expressed an interest in cross-training into arboriculture, which aligns him with Arbtech’s long-term vision for all of our consultants to be “hybrids”; able to serve our planning clients across two or more disciplines, while only incurring the time and travelling cost of one site visit. Winner.
