Ilkeston based ecology, arboriculture and flood risk consultants, RammSanderson is strengthening its senior management team following the appointment of two new Principal Ecologists and has also recruited a new graduate environmental consultant.
Having joined RammSanderson in 2016 and 2017, Jenni Carr and Joe McLaughlin have been promoted to Principal Ecologists. Their appointments are a key part of the business growth plan and will further stabilise the services and systems that already in place.
As part of their new role, Jenni and Joe will have full oversight on all projects. They will be the main point of contact internally for other RammSanderson consultants who are managing the commission, bidding and work allocation on client projects. These senior appointments will also allow the Director team to focus on growth, strengthening client relationship and business development.
The firm has also taken on Rachel Cooper as a graduate Environmental Consultant. Having graduated from the University of Worcester with a degree in Environmental Science, Rachel will be working alongside both flood risk and ecology services to bolster their internal capabilities and assist the Directors in carrying out river habitat surveys and water framework directive assessments.
Commenting on the new appointments, Director, Nick Sanderson said, “During lockdown the Directors were forced to refocus our passion for field work and had a lot more direct engagement with our clients and teams. Navigating this period we have remained busy and we realised that now is the right time for us to strengthen our management team in order to continue expansion in a way that enables us to offer a personalised service to clients and ensure our internal teams are fully supported.”
Oliver Ramm added, “Our team currently consists of ecologists or arboriculture consultants, so adding Rachel to the team as an environmental consultant adds yet another string to our bow.”
RammSanderson was founded in 2014 by Directors Oliver Ramm, Nick Sanderson and Anthony Mellor. Since then the company has progressively moved towards working on larger scale projects, and diversified its client portfolio across infrastructure, utilities, commercial and residential sectors, growing a larger team capable of taking on significant projects in its own right including being successful on major utilities frameworks. The company employs 45 people across offices located in Ilkeston, Stafford and Sheffield.
