Office move puts Biodiverse Consulting in mood for growth

An environmental consultancy plans to create jobs following an office expansion.

Biodiverse Consulting says it is “focusing on bringing in more experienced ecologists” after switching to Ponteland’s Dissington Hall.

Bosses say the new headquarters provide space for “anticipated future growth” as the business benefits from ever-increasing demand for biodiversity net gain (BNG) and nutrient neutrality services.

Vicki Mordue, founder and director, said: “Turnover has tripled in the three years we have been in operation, and it’s great to be able to invest back into our team and our premises.

“Another exciting element of the move is that it brings the possibility of broadening our services offering.

“We’ve recently welcomed Mike Gray as a principal ecologist, but he also has a wealth of experience in the solar industry.

“A physically bigger space makes room for exploring additional ecology services, as well as consultancy in the field of renewable energy.

“We have big and bold ambitions, but right now, we’re focusing on bringing in more experienced ecologists, as we buckle up for BNG becoming a legal requirement.”

Dana Cherlin has also joined as a graduate ecologist.

She added: “The team has been so welcoming, and I have already learned so much.

“I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Founded in 2019, Biodiverse Consulting’s clients include Dysart Developments, Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire and The Wildlife Trusts.
