4Sight is looking for ecology consultants that believe in better.

Join:
  • A business where people, clients and the environment come first

  • A highly engaged and respected team who love working together

  • A business that prides itself on diversity and flexibility

What we're looking for: 
  • Terrestrial Ecologist with 3+ years’ experience based out of our Waikato office - experience with bats desired

  • Freshwater Ecologist with 4-5 years of experience based out of our Gisborne office - vegetation/wetlands experience ideal

  • Freshwater Ecologist with 3+ years’ experience based out of our Auckland office

  • Marine Ecologist at a Senior level based out of our Dunedin office - this role in particular will require technical field skills and some laboratory experience

  • Consultancy experience highly desirable

  • Strong New Zealand ecology knowledge

  • Experience in ecological effects assessment, management and restoration

  • CEnvP ecology specialist certification (or equivalent) or actively working towards it

Our Ecology team is growing – and fast! Ryder Environmental, a Dunedin based company, has recently become part of the 4Sight team, and while that means we can now provide additional specialist advice and laboratory services in freshwater, marine, terrestrial ecology, and water quality for clients throughout New Zealand, we’re looking to build our expertise even further. We currently have the following opportunities available for Intermediate to Senior level Ecologists to join our experienced and talented Ecology team: 

  • Terrestrial Ecologist with 3+ years’ experience based out of our Waikato office - experience with bats desired;

  • Freshwater Ecologist with 4-5 years of experience based out of our Gisborne office - vegetation/wetlands experience ideal;

  • Freshwater Ecologist with 3+ years’ experience based out of our Auckland office; and

  • Marine Ecologist at a Senior level based out of our Dunedin office - this role, in particular, will require technical field skills and some laboratory experience.


Working alongside our newly expanded and dedicated team, as the successful candidate, you will be assisting us in maintaining and growing 4Sight’s vision for the Ecology team and our market reach by providing exceptional client and project management services to our growing client base. This could involve scoping projects and associated costs, developing business and client relationships, undertaking fieldwork, collecting samples, analysis of data, and detailed report writing.

To complement the experience we already have in 4Sight, you will be an energetic and talented individual who knows what it takes to be successful in a consulting environment. You will be able to competently deal with dynamic clients, regulatory authorities, iwi/hapū, local community members and a wide range of experts in your specialist area in order to deliver sustainable outcomes for a variety of projects for our public and private clients.

You will need to have a passion for New Zealand’s wildlife and a sound knowledge of ecological management with relevant field experience across a range of ecosystems, habitats and taxa.

The ideal environment starts with yours, so come and join a New Zealand owned and operated consultancy that is dynamic, flexible and expanding, and where our values drive everything we do.

We’ve built a reputation for providing expert planning and environmental services that deliver the results clients want while maintaining regulatory and environmental integrity.

We apply the right expertise, information and process to every project we undertake - and go above and beyond to get a balanced outcome. Our promise is to always be upfront, easy to deal with and to take a long-term view.

So, if this sounds like the ideal environment for you, come and join us! Please apply with a personalised cover letter and CV here
