About the role

You will work alongside our Head Forester to prepare, implement and evaluate operational plans. This is a very hands on role and will include practical forestry planning, planting and maintenance, as well as caring for our mature and ancient woodland sites, working with the staff team, volunteers, corporate supporters and contractors to achieve our vision of a 30,000-acre contiguous woodland. 

The role is diverse, and as well as demonstrating a sound knowledge of forestry best practice and current issues, you will need to consider widening public access and encouraging people and wildlife. 

We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic individual who will be a key player in the delivery of our strategy and a real advocate for social forestry‬. You will need to enjoy working autonomously and as part of a small team, and as a strong people manager you will enjoy training, coaching and mentoring team members and watching them progress.  

You will be a passionate ambassador for the charity, so good communication skills are a must. ‬‬‬If this sounds like you, and you are a self-motivated person able to work both autonomously and as part of a small team, then please apply.
