Arboriculturist

agb Environmental has an exciting opportunity for an Arboriculturist to join our busy team.

We are flexible about the level of this position, it may suit someone wanting to move into consultancy at a more junior level, to gain experience, or for a more experienced candidate, it may provide the opportunity to develop the consultant’s role – we are open to ideas.

Arboricultural surveying and reporting forms an integral part of the range of services we offer, and we have a consistent demand for our services, with scope to expand this further.  The majority of our arboricultural work is within the planning system, delivering reports to meet the requirements of BS 5837:2012, though we provide a range of other arboricultural services, and for the right candidate there is opportunity to expand this range further.

The ideal candidate will have the following as a minimum:

  • A Level 4 (or equivalent) qualification in Arboriculture; and / or
  • A Professional Tree Inspection Certificate;
  • Experience of working in arboriculture in either local authority or with contractors; and
  • Good tree identification skills.

You would work within the Natural Environment Team based in Newmarket, Suffolk.  Depending on skills and experience, the role will primarily involve tree surveying, carrying out site visits, writing up the surveys and preparing plans, and may include seeing the entire process through from start to finish, working closely with clients and delivering reports.

If you would be interested in joining our team and want to discuss this further, please call Richard Parmee on 01638 663226, or get in touch by email: richard@agbenvironmental.co.uk

Assistant Ecologist (Click for full description)

This is initially a fixed term position through until the autumn, with potential for this to be extended depending upon ability and business need.

The role will focus on assisting in the delivery of multiple ecology projects.  You will be supporting an existing team of Ecologists, working both in the field and in the office. 

The ideal candidate will have the following as a minimum:

  • A degree in Ecology or related discipline.
  • An appreciation of H&S issues related to ecology works.
  • IT literate, particularly with MS Office packages.
