That's a pretty broad area. Some ideas:

- job as a scientist/advisor with one of the statutory environment agencies (Natural England, Natural Resources Wales, Scottish Natural Heritage)
- advisory or technical/policy officer with an NGO like the RSPB, World Wildlife Fund or Friends of the Earth
- freelance ecologist doing surveys prior to road or housing developments

For the most part, these kinds of jobs will need at least a first degree, but that could be in almost any related field. The biggest help if you want to land a job of this sort will be if you can gain experience in the practical application of the subject. Most jobs are about how policy affects real life , so if you go to uni, you should make sure you go beyond the taught course and speak to postgrads who are doing practical work, and network with field workers.
