Our Team

Maddy Carter

What made you choose Arbtech?

The advert for the internship was honest and understanding of how difficult it can be to get into the ecology industry. It presented an amazing opportunity for me after I’d just recently left university, and I only had limited field experience, as I undertook my degree during the pandemic.

When I looked further into the company, it was all green flags, and the culture and perks that came with the job were something I couldn’t dismiss.

What do you love most about the company?

The people.

I have met such a range of people who are all so knowledgeable and willing to help me to learn and progress.

On top of that, I really enjoy the flexible working hours and being able to make my own schedule so I can still continue with things I find important, such as the gym and taking my rottie for her walks.

What do you not do when you are not in Arbtech?

I enjoy travelling. My next trip is to Scotland to go on some long hikes and enjoy the local countryside.

I like to go to the gym regularly and take my dog on long walks all around Kent.

I am vegan, so I enjoy cooking and trying new restaurants and different types of food.

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

I believe that it is very important to have a good work-life balance – something that Arbtech actively promotes.

I have a job that I thoroughly enjoy and am excited about every day, but I also have the time to pursue my passions outside of work.

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

I have only had the opportunity to go on one social so far – a trip to a water park in Delamere Forest followed by a night out in Liverpool.

It was such an amazing social, and it was so great to meet the people that I don’t get to work with as often.

Where do you want to travel next?

My next trip is to Scotland, but following this, I would like to travel to one of the Scandinavian countries for the scenery and then to Ibiza in the summer.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Career-wise, I hope to have some protected species licences under my belt, to have progressed within Arbtech, and to potentially work on more conservation-based projects.

Personally, I hope to have my own place, run both a half and full marathon, and travel each year.

What is a goal you have for the future?

My biggest career goal is to be involved in the rewilding of British fauna.

Bison have just been released into the woods near my house and this has inspired me to become more involved with British wildlife and the continuation of its conservation.

Maddy joined Arbtech in July 2023.
