We are looking for an experienced Ecologist to join our expanding Works Delivery team based within LNW - London North Western Route.  You will support the wider team by undertaking a range of Ecological field surveys, including protected species surveys, and extended Phase 1 Habitat Surveys.

You will collate, write up and review survey results and mapping target notes, analysing them to identify appropriate recommendations. You will also own the implementation and embedding of recommendations to deliver continuous improvement.

We are looking for an individual who has a good understanding of UK and European wildlife legislation and has a relevant higher education degree to match. You must be able to identify baseline Ecological constraints during site visits and have experience of standard survey protocols and methodologies.

We are looking for talented people from all backgrounds to join our journey and move us forward by having a rewarding career, the right lifestyle balance and great benefits in a caring environment.  We value the commitments you may have outside of work and will consider flexible working applications. If we can make it work – we will!

LNW’s vision for the five years to 2024 is “One team safely delivering excellent services to customers and taxpayers.” We will achieve this vision by embedding a safe, caring workforce culture that welcomes everyone and embraces new ideas and fresh thinking. By becoming a more open, diverse and inclusive organisation we can deliver a safe, accessible railway for everyone. We’re working hard to ensure our workforce better represents our customers and society as a whole.
