Nature Metrics - Head of Environmental Consultancy

Company Background:

You will join an expanding science-based, biodiversity monitoring start-up. Having just closed their Series A funding round and secured a new HQ in Guildford, the business is poised for strong growth.

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 at crime scenes, NatureMetrics offer similar technology to assess impacts on wildlife 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 eDNA technology to be used alongside consultancy projects they are working on. Naturemetrics is the leading Biodiversity monitoring company and consultancies should be willing to integrate our technologies into their offering (with your help).

Responsibilities:

  • Identify key clients with credibility and a desire to deliver high quality eDNA to various consultancy projects.

  • Partnering with consultancies to sell NatureMetrics monitoring services assisting them in delivering a premium service to clients locally and internationally.

  • Identify opportunities for working with certification bodies, standard setters etc to develop standardised metrics for biodiversity monitoring in the context of Environmental Consultancy.

  • Build a global team who can address this sector both from the UK and upon international expansion to North America, Africa, South America and SE Asia.

  • The role would not have direct reports to begin with but would have the potential to develop a global team along with the development of a sizable market opportunity.
