Our Team

Josephine McCarthy

Jo is one of our ecologists based in the South East of England. She originally joined Arbtech as a subcontractor in 2015, but eventually opted to work specifically for Arbtech in 2019 after gaining vital knowledge and impactful inspiration through shadowing principal ecologist Craig Williams.

With a lifelong interest in nature and wildlife, Jo previously volunteered for London Wildlife Trust on the Thames in West London, the Tree Council and Surrey Tree Wardens. She is passionate about developing more skills after achieving a level 2 bat licence in 2019. In her spare time, Jo enjoys horse riding, listening to music and catching up on sleep.

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!
