Josephine is based in Surrey and joined Arbtech as a consultant ecologist, specialising in bats and preliminary ecological appraisal, hitting out to London and the eastern home counties. She holds a class II bat licence, and having the senior arb team plan her introduction to BS5837 tree surveys, through a series of CPD courses, qualifications and a (probably very intensive) period of in-house training. Josephine subcontracted to Arbtech during the busy summer season for many years, and for the last two, has been the protégé of project manager and senior consultant, Craig Williams.
Jo was new to Arbtech in 2019.
Robert Oates, managing director says:
It says a lot about the Arbtech culture when Josephine comes in, brand new, and is a better report-author than quite a few us (me included)–all of whom have been in this game for a decade or more–and yet, instead of being met with envy and politics, everyone is super-keen to share her brilliant work, and jump on her with quesitons about how they can learn and improve. She’s quite literally upped our entire game in a matter of weeks. I’m excited to see what she brings to the table over the coming months and years!
