Our Team

Natalie Evans

Natalie is an ecologist, masters graduate and Natural England, class II licenced bat worker. Natalie worked at Arbtech for over a year as a sub-contractor and for a short while before that, as a trainee/intern, before being selected from over fifty applicants for a full-time role, doing the job she loves, on the testimony of her work quality from several of her now colleagues.

Hailing from Chichester, Natalie is well placed to deliver a range of work, from preliminary ecological appraisal to species-specific surveys for development sites large and small.

Natalie is a senior consultant and has a significant role in mentoring junior staff, especially during their orientation period. An avid bird watcher, in her spare time Natalie likes to read and watch programmes about British birds and wildlife, as well as being an active member of several volunteer organisations including the RSPB and WWT.

How does she fit it all in?

Natalie has been with us 7 years.

Robert Oates, managing director says:

When I called to chat about offering her the role, she told me she accepted before I could finish the first sentence! This infectious eagerness spills over into everything she does for our customers and is probably the reason she gets rave reviews from them.

Natalie is a very highly valued member of the team and the business genuinely wouldn’t be where it is today without her. She is also, like me, a colossal wine snob (this is why we usually sit together during socials to share a bottle or two!)
