Bring your enthusiasm and passion for ecology and contribute to exciting projects that help shape our environment.

We’re on the lookout for an experienced, enthusiastic and talented Terrestrial Ecologist to join our multi-disciplinary team in Christchurch. You’ll be working on a broad range of challenging and rewarding projects, including projects which may require time away from the Christchurch office.

Ideally, you’ll bring at least three years’ ecological/environment consulting experience, along with the following skills and attributes:

  • Post graduate qualifications in Ecology or a closely related field, with a specific understanding and/or experience in New Zealand terrestrial ecology;
  • Advanced understanding and interest of NZ botany, and the topical ecological issues surrounding this;
  • Sound knowledge of, and practical field experience with, South Island vegetation, plant communities and biota;
  • Proficiency and experience in terrestrial ecology methodologies and data collection. Knowledge of, and familiarity with, freshwater ecology would also be beneficial;
  • An understanding of, and experience with, the ecological aspects of resource management, including preparation of Technical Ecology Reports and management plans;
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to work collaboratively;
  • Advanced interpretive and scientific report writing skills and at least basic GIS knowledge;
  • Strong data management and analysis skills, including exceptional attention to detail;
  • Experience in working safely, and sometimes autonomously, particularly when undertaking fieldwork and other out of office activities;
  • A current and full Drivers Licence.

We offer a supportive, collaborative and respectful working environment, and the opportunity to work closely with our multidisciplinary team. Our Ecology team works increasingly with our Te Hīhiri team to understand tikanga Māori, and actively engage with iwi and hapū.

Boffa Miskell is a leading New Zealand professional services consultancy. We bring together professionals with an integrated environmental view, the ability to think creatively and with leadership and collaboration skills to deliver award winning projects.
