At Biodiverse Consulting, we are always looking for talented individuals to join our rapidly growing team, regardless of your location - although our offices are rather special and located at Grade II listed, Dissington Hall, Newcastle upon Tyne. 

We’re a high growth company working across the UK, made up of ecologists and environmental experts, passionate about supporting businesses and biodiversity to flourish. 

Here, you’ll have the opportunity to be part of something special, to help scale our consultancy, as well as develop your own sector specialisms, in a progressive and supportive environment.

You don’t have to compromise your career aspirations either. We’re small enough to care but large enough to work on varied and exciting projects with nationally significant businesses, supporting real and lasting environmentally positive change.

And if you have a particular area of environmental expertise you’d like to nurture and develop, we’ll support you, through training, volunteering time and continued professional development. We recruit at every level - from graduates to Principal Ecologist, as well as operational staff.

We consider our team to be our greatest resource, valuing each individual member. We are committed to providing a safe, positive and progressive working environment, and encourage a culture of teamwork, professionalism, learning and camaraderie, imbuing enthusiasm in each team member.

What Our Team Thinks...

Luc Hanse-Foster, Ecologist

“For me, the best part is the variety of the projects we do. No day is the same - every day we are working on a different project and experiencing a different part of ecology. I am never stuck doing the same task, which suits my working style."

Angus Walker, Assistant Ecologist

“With a small team comes added learning and development. There are so many chances to explore new skills and enhance existing ones. It’s also a great environment here, we have such a good team of good people.”
