LUCAS Survey Contract - Vacancies

JBA Consulting have been successful in being appointed to carry out LUCAS throughout Ireland in the summer of 2022. The purpose of LUCAS is to collect data on land cover / land use and agri-environmental data by the field observation of thousands of survey points.  All the observations will be recorded via the use of a digital field data collection system, with information then being input into the LUCAS Data Management Tool software for quality control and processing. The survey will also incorporate specialist modules of soil sampling at one in ten locations, and a grassland survey of a selected points.

This is the fourth cycle of the survey contact that we have been appointed to, with previous commissions also covering the whole of the UK as well.  Since 2012 we have made great developments in the automation and processing invovled in the data collection and are delighted to be able to put this into further practice for the 2022 contract.

As a result of this contract success, we are now seeking a number of field surveyors to undertake land use survey for the spring and summer.  For more details of the roles and to apply, click here.
