Strong field skills, with experience of leading a wide range of ecological survey, assessment and compliance services to clients, including surveys for Phase 1 habitats, vegetation (to NVC standard), invasive plants, protected species and Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW). Strong report writing skills, including writing ecology chapters for EIAs, my candidate also has developed fee proposals/tender inputs, provided expert review and managed projects through to completion.
