Your varied and vital key tasks will include:

- interpreting evidence and providing expert, practical advice to case officers and senior staff to mitigate environmental impacts and seek environmental enhancement

- providing clear and timely evidence-based advice concerning the protection and monitoring of domestic and European protected sites in relation to development pressures.

Our Chief Scientist Directorate is a great place to work; you'll find some of the country's leading environmental scientists here.


We're looking for someone with an excellent understanding of marine mammals, their ecology and associated survey techniques. As a specialist, you will be keen to apply this to strategic solutions and practical advice to sectors such as oil and gas, renewable energy, nuclear and fisheries. With an excellent understanding of the relevant evidence base, you know how marine pollution and climate change could be affecting marine animals. You also have a good understanding of broader English marine ecology and ecosystems, have the know-how required to inform the management of Marine Protected Areas, and understand wider policies and roles within the marine environment.
