Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a committed professional who can demonstrate the application of BS 5837 and tree risk assessment, and who takes a pro-active and positive approach to project leadership. We need a team player who is versatile and experienced in collaborating with a range of other professionals; someone who enjoys developing strong relationships with clients, acting as the day-to-day contact, and trusted to deliver high quality work.
We are looking for someone to help us further develop arboricultural opportunities in the North East and Scottish Borders with the opportunity for continued self-progression and increasing managerial responsibilities.
The role and requirements
The role sits within and is supported by our 11 strong team of arboricultural consultants. You will have the opportunity to provide support to and gain experience in all aspects of private sector arboricultural consultancy.
The role will include the provision of BS 5837 surveys, risk assessments and population management, with the opportunity to promote and develop these services. You will produce a suite of written and CAD based reports and drawings, and have the opportunity to work on projects that are helping shape the UK’s housing, road, rail and energy infrastructure.
You will have demonstrable experience of winning work and to have enthusiasm to increase our technical capabilities and drive the business forward.
The successful candidate will be based in our Gateshead office. The role is suitable for office or ‘hybrid working’ with time split between home and office working. The candidate will be expected to travel occasionally, staying away from home, to meet the requirements of projects and training events.
Who you’ll be working with
TEP provide a wide range of services to public, private and charity sector clients. We also sit on framework panels for Forestry Commission, Anglian Water, United Utilities and National Churches Trust Framework. You can expect to be involved with and support projects of varying size or complexity from domestic tree inspections and tree hazard evaluation right to national infrastructure projects.
In the last 12 months we have undertaken volume work for The Land Trust, Natural England, National Grid, English Heritage, large housing developers and several historic estates. We have also produced strategic tree management documents for Wirral Council, Newcastle Council, Preston Council and Manchester City Council.
