KWT Consultancy Services requires surveyors with experience in UK Habs to have an understanding of the Defra Metric 3.1 and use of app based technologies being advantageous.

KWT Consultancy Services (KWT CS) is part of the Kent Wildlife Trust Group (KWTG). KWT CS returns any profit generated to conservation work in Kent via Kent Wildlife Trust itself.

We are at the forefront of solutions to the nature and climate crisis. The KWT Group holds the unique position of being able to evaluate and providing valuations for clients on natural capital through its proprietary Carbon + Habitat Tool.

We are able to help clients and partners to properly understand where they are currently in terms of their capacity for a net gain in biodiversity and carbon sequestration. We can model scenarios for Nature-based Solutions where this can be enhanced to aspire to a 20% + net gain in biodiversity, sequestering carbon to help support their carbon net zero strategy and where relevant, achieve nutrient neutrality. This in turn can be delivered through conservation work on the ground in partnership with conservation organisations.

Your role will be pivotal in supporting the KWT Group through both bringing in income and delivery opportunities through Nature-based Solutions, specifically undertaking UK Habs surveys for landowners for completion of Defra Metric 3.1 or latest version.
