Senior / Consultant Arboriculturist

Company Logo

Arboricultural Consultancy has a critical role to play in the protection of individual trees, woodlands and hedgerows and as part of the wider climate emergency; where the replacement and safeguarding of Green Infrastructure needs to be addressed through creative design and the assessment of development opportunities and constraints.

Can you find creative solutions to complex problems? Then you’ll want to take this opportunity. Are you an outdoorsy type that will battle with the elements as long as you can cosy up to a pub fire afterwards? Yup, that’s us too! If you relish the balance between lone wolf and team player, managing your own time well but collaborating with a UK wide team, you’d best apply!

Our tribe of ecological, landscape planning and arboricultural consultants are in a great position to make a positive impact on the built and natural environments.

We are looking for new team members for our offices in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and London.
