Mel completed her undergraduate degree back in 2015 in Biology at Liverpool John Moores University. Mel moved to London to study for her Master’s degree in Biodiversity, Conservation and Evolution (MRes), based at University College London, the Zoological Society of London and the Natural History Museum.
After completing her Master’s degree, Mel worked for us as a sub-contractor and successfully completed our ASSET ecology training course. Mel has impressed the Arbtech team so much during her time on ASSET and working as a sub-contractor that she was given a permanent role at Arbtech in January 2019.
Mel is based at head office and spends her time carrying out a wide range of surveys around the North West. Recently, Mel was awarded her class I bat licence.
Mel has been with us 1 year.
Robert Oates, managing director says:
Mel (and Louise) were among the stand-out candidates on the 2018 ASSET programme. Mel is super-hard working, conscientious and a great team player. She goes the extra mile on anything she’s asked to do (including short-notice taskings in Ireland and Scotland!!) and still makes time to be a part of several bat conservation groups to rack up those precious experience hours in her own time. Although she’s been working here less than one year (hired in January, 2019), Mel already feels like a permanent feature at Arbtech. I’m both proud and lucky she decided to work with us.
