To meet our statutory remit, Waterways Ireland is looking for a Project Ecologist to join our Environment, Heritage and Sustainability team.
The successful candidate will provide comprehensive ecological services and specialist advice on a diverse range of projects undertaken by the team, particularly with regard to the delivery of capital and maintenance project requirements.
The location of this role is flexible and could be in Dublin, Scarriff, Carrick-on-Shannon, or another Waterways Ireland office.
The role offers an opportunity for a professional ecologist to work on 1000 km of navigable waterways throughout the island of Ireland utilising the various skills they may have acquired through formal training and professional experience.
Prospective candidates will be expected to have excellent report writing skills, be well organised with meticulous attention to detail, while also being able to manage a varied and full workload.
While the focus of this role is on ecology, there is also the requirement to support the range of environmental and heritage projects undertaken by the organisation.
