Louise is an ecologist based in our head office in Chester. Louise is a graduate of our ASSET programme and she impressed the team so much with her enthusiasm and skills that she now works for us as a full-time ecologist.
Louise can be found carrying out a range of ecology surveys all over the North West, and bat surveys in Wales. She doing a lot of CPD in order to develop her skills further, in areas like otter biology and preliminary ecological appraisal. Recently, Louise was awarded her class I bat licence.
Louise has worked at Arbtech for 2 years.
Robert Oates, managing director says:
Louise (like Mel) was an amazing candidate on the 2018 ASSET programme. She showed a real keenness to shadow our consultants and assist as a paid subcontractor on larger surveys. As her skills developed, the business reached a point where we needed to recruit a new graduate consultant; Louise was the obvious choice. Since then, she’s been back on ASSET to give an inspiring talk to the 2019 summer course students: with tales of being in four countries inside of a week, the trials and tribulations of bat survey season, and “real-life” as an ecological consultant. I really like Lou, especially her competitive streak – we have a head office Fitbit steps competition which lately, Louise has been smashing because she’s training for a marathon. I need to up my game!!
