Newport or Newcastle).

BSG Ecology is an award-winning consultancy. Our ambition is to continue to build our success
on rewarding and challenging work. Our focus is on helping our clients achieve their aims, as

    consultancies within a friendly, intelligent, and supportive team
  • Diverse work including a variety of tasks of varying scales in a wide range of sectors
    including renewable energy, heritage, residential, recreation, infrastructure, and on projects
    requiring biodiversity net gain and habitat creation
  • A competitive salary and benefits including a flexible working policy and 25 days annual
    leave (pro rata).

We are looking for candidates with:

  • An appropriate degree or equivalent in GIS, spatial analysis or a related discipline.
  • Experience of cartography with attention to detail.
  • Experience in the desktop GIS package QGIS for the interpretation and presentation of data.
    Experience with ArcGIS an advantage but not essential.
  • The ability to identify and implement technical solutions in relation to GIS, spatial
    analysis and data management.
  • Confidence and a demonstrable track record in written, verbal and technical communication
    including an ability to work with non-specialists to identify a brief and deliver a task.
  • A good understanding and experience of integrating outputs from other drawing and
    publishing packages commonly used in consultancy (such as CAD and InDesign) into GIS.
  • An organised approach to work, flexibility and a high level of motivation and proven track
    record in prioritising multiple tasks.
