This role is ideal for a practical person wishing to develop their conservation forestry skills, experience and competencies for career progression in a growing charity.

It gives the successful candidate an opportunity to grow and shape England’s largest new native broadleaf woodland, whilst gaining practical experience on the job.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is keen to learn and has a “can do” attitude, who will be a passionate ambassador for the charity.

You will be part of a dedicated team responsible for woodland and access management across the 7,000 acre Forest.

The winter months will predominantly be tree planting when you will join the rest of the forestry team creating new woodland within the Heart of England Forest. This will include working with the staff team, volunteers, corporate supporters and contractors to achieve our vision of a 30,000-acre contiguous woodland.

The role is broad and as well as practical forestry you will be involved in maintaining and widening public access, improving our diverse habitats and championing the Heart of England Forest.

If you enjoy working outdoors in all weathers, engaging with members of the public and enjoying the natural world as the seasons change, we would love to hear from you.
