Gascoyne Estates manages 16,000 acres of rural land, including na­tive heath, chalk streams, forestry, grassland and arable. As a key part of our Sustainability Commitments, we are seeking to continuously improve the biodiversity and natural capital of our estates.

In order to monitor our approach, we are seeking an experienced ecologist to undertake a comprehensive natural capital baseline across our two rural estates.

Spending broadly equal time in both Hertfordshire and Dorset, the Project Ecologist will conduct detailed ecological surveys across our varied landscapes.

This data will be collected with a view to creating an estate scale habitat improvement plan, and the prospect of trading in emerging natural capital markets.

Working closely with our Estate Directors and rural teams, the Project Ecologist will have excellent communication skills and be able to manage multiple stakeholders.

Working independently, they will also engage with tenants, farmers, foresters, gamekeepers and others in the delivery of their work.

This role will involve travel between the two estates as required. A travel and accommodation budget will be provided.

  • Comfortable managing relationships with multiple stakeholders, including tenants, owners, farmers, foresters and gamekeepers

  • Excellent verbal and written communicator
