Seasonal reptile fieldworkers
Bioscan are recruiting in connection with delivery of Port of Tilbury London Limited’s Tilbury2 port development, a nationally significant infrastructure project on the River Thames Estuary in South Essex. The site of the project is part of the former Tilbury Power Station and has a number of ecological constraints requiring mitigation and compensation, including the large scale translocation of four reptile species.

Due to the size and complexity of the site, and the need to ensure capture effort is optimised, up to six personnel are required to assist with the capture and translocation of reptiles (common lizard, slow worm, grass snake and adder) from the site, to an off-site receptor near Southend. The translocation will be overseen by the Ecological Clerks of Works (ECoW) and/or supervising Senior Herpetologists, and fieldworkers will be required to follow instructions on capture, handling, transport and release of reptiles.

Reptile fieldworkers will be required, on a self-employed (sub-contracted) basis, for the period of March 2019 – June 2019 (i.e. 4 months as a minimum), but on-going work is likely be available until October 2019. Availability to work weekends would be an advantage, and the salary offered would be commensurate with experience. Further information is provided in the attached specification.

While previous experience of reptile work, including surveys, translocation, capture and handling will be a distinct advantage, all relevant training will be given. All applicants are however expected to be able to demonstrate an interest in and good general knowledge of wildlife ecology, ideally with one or more related qualifications. A full driving licence is essential as is a willingness to use their own vehicle (mileage disbursements will be paid for travel between the site and the off-site reptile receptor) and to have a flexible approach towards working hours in recognition of the need to target peak times for reptile capture and release.

To apply, please submit a cv with covering letter to Bioscan. Initial applications for reptile fieldworkers are to be received by 7th January 2019. Successful candidates will be selected from a shortlist and may be invited to interview in Tilbury, provisionally w/c 14th January 2019. Applications received after this point may also be considered.
