We are a new business providing tree care (domestic and some commercial) and conservation contracting. We are approved contractors for Tillhill, the FC and some other large organisations providing scrub clearance, selective felling, coppicing, hedgelaying, ecological mitigation work, de-veg, invasive species management, bat surveys and veteran tree management We are hoping to build relationships with local subbies that share our ethos. We are paying good rates for people that are knowledgable, competent and have an interest in ecology and conservation, but the most important thing for us is that you have a good mental attitude and don't mind a bit of hard work! We have a busy start to the New Year and we could do with some help. We do travel across the southern half of England, and people willing to work away would be very valuable, and well paid. We cover all expenses and nice lodgings. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your qualifications, experience and interests. Cheers, Harry www.greenmandorset.co.uk
Hi, I haven't found any recent threads on doing bat surveys, but I understand the training is out there, even for those without ecology degrees. I know it can be difficult to get into as (it seems) it's a who knows who type industry. It's something I've been interested in getting into, but haven't known where to go. Also, I need to pay the bills, so voluntary work is generally kept to a minimum. Any thoughts or direction? I'm in the southwest, by the way. Thanks
Hi, I've been in the industry for 10 yrs or so and am wondering how easy it is to get into ecology? I've done the RFS, tech cert and am studying an a level in environmental studies. I also help out an ecologist with bat surveys and have reached a manager level in tree work. I've spoken to a few people and they have said I need volunteer experience, more volunteer experience and a degree. Does anyone know whether it is realistic for me to be an ecologist without a degree and has anyone succeeded in the same position as me? I enjoy tree work but my love of it is certainly waning as I get older
