Forester

Based in Central Scotland

£25,000 to £35,000 per annum (Dependent on experience)

The Green Action Trust is one of Scotland’s leading environmental charities. We have been regenerating Central Scotland by undertaking landscape scale projects; creating and improving greenspaces, planting and managing woodlands, greening vacant and derelict land, creating and maintaining paths and enhancing a range of habitats for over 40 years. We are specifically responsible for delivering the Central Scotland Green Network. We are passionate about the positive environmental and social change we can deliver in Scotland and are seeking candidates who have a similar passion to help us create this change. 

The role involves woodland design, woodland management planning, cost estimating, management and delivery of projects and securing forestry grants. We are seeking applications from individuals with:

• A track record of managing and overseeing woodland creation, woodland management and/or environmental projects.
• Relevant academic qualifications.
• Excellent communication skills, computer literacy and confident in using GIS.
• A positive, solution orientated and flexible attitude to their work.
• Good knowledge of the Forestry Grant Scheme in Scotland.
• Professional membership of the Institute of Chartered Foresters or another relevant professional body is desirable.

This is a great opportunity for a highly driven, competent, and innovative individual to put their own mark on shaping our future. Key will be your commitment to enable us to reach exemplar status. In return we offer a very flexible and supportive working environment which will help your own personal development, through training and support, so that you have all the tools necessary to succeed.  

All positions advertised are offered on a permanent, full-time basis (although part-time and flexible working arrangements will be considered) and will involve hybrid working, between home and our office in Shotts, North Lanarkshire. Travel within Scotland will be required, therefore a clean driving licence and access to a vehicle are essential.
