NatureMetrics is a high growth medium sized company leading the revolution in molecular biodiversity monitoring, enabling environmental managers to measure and monitor biodiversity with DNA-based tools.

In the same way forensic DNA sampling is used on crime scenes, Naturemetrics offer similar technology to assess impacts on wild life genetics in projects across various sectors. We have grown rapidly over the last five years and have exciting plans for our future global growth.

This role will focus on leading a team to work with Naturemetric's clients within the environmental consultancy field and integrate the NM technology to be used alongside consultancy projects they are working on. Naturemetrics are the leading Biodiversity monitoring company and consultancies should be willing to integrate our technologies into their offering (with your help).

  • This role reports to our Business Development Director (Steve Jones)

What you need:

  • Knowledge and network within the environmental consultancy industry is essential
