Our Team

Emma Carter

What made you start Arbtech?

I was tired of my old job, doing something pretty similar but feeling as though I was working hard and getting nowhere. Ultimately, I was looking to enhance my skills and progress my career as an ecologist.

I had come across the company’s arboriculture section before and looked into the ecological work. As soon as I saw an opening, I jumped at It!

What do you love most about the company?

Although I’m new to the company, the culture and team bond between all of the staff really stands out as unique and something I’ve never seen before. It’s really exciting to get to be a part of it.

The training offered is excellent, which is particularly important to me as I am still relatively new to the ecology Industry.

What do you do when you are not at Arbtech?

For the past few years, I have been working remotely with a conservation company in Africa on animal behaviour research (mostly elephants and African wild dogs) to produce conflict mitigation literature and conservation management projects.

In any spare time I’m able to get, I love to explore new places around the UK. My trips usually involve wildlife watching and photography, hiking, snorkelling in the summer, catching up with friends, and trying new restaurants.

What is your biggest tip to achieve the most in life?

Plan out your day every day, and wake up early enough to fit it all in.

The day is long enough if you make the most of it!

What is the best social you’ve been on at Arbtech?

I’m a brand-new employee so I haven’t been able to attend any of them yet.

That said, I am looking forward to the proposed skydiving trip in the future.

Where do you want to travel to next?

I have always wanted to go to Finland and stay in a wildlife cabin for a weekend to watch wild bears and wolves out in nature in the spring. I am planning on going this year. It would also be amazing to see the northern lights in person.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?

I would love to be a senior ecological consultant with knowledge of all things protected species. I also aim to have obtained all of my licences and be able to teach others how to survey for these species and create specific management plans.

In addition to these goals, I would like to have completed a master’s in conservation management and have input with Natural England on species management.

What is a goal you have for the future, in or out of work?

I would like to carry out ecological work in some new places such as large rewilding projects in the UK and Europe and be a part of endangered species reintroduction programmes around the world.

I would also really like to have some of my research published and become a scientific author.

Emma joined Arbtech in December 2022.
