Senior Forestry Manager | National Availability | National Firm

We are working with a leading national firm who through expansion are seeking a senior forestry manager to develop and lead a national team of forestry managers.

Our client

A fantastic opportunity has arisen with a successful firm of chartered surveyors who are seeking a senior forestry manager to join their growing team based across the country. A combination of providing a one stop shop service for their clients and an expansion in the sector has seen a surge in demand for their professional services.

Teams include specialists on forestry and woodland management, who advise on everything from large-scale commercial conifer forests through to small-scale mixed woodland blocks managed for their amenity value.

Well-managed woodlands on many estates are an important revenue stream and can also offer other benefits such as greater biodiversity and enhanced property values.

The Role

To build and lead a team of forestry managers who are based across the country.

Advising on the practical side of woodland management, from planting and management to improve timber quality, through to felling and the processing of timber ready for sale.

Grant funding is available for the creation and sustainable management of forests and woodland and will be a key aspect for the role. The market for timber can be niche and our specialists can use their local knowledge to identify and develop marketing opportunities.

There are differences in the schemes offered in England, Scotland and Wales and our team guide clients through the application process for each.

You will be based out of one of the many national offices covering England and Scotland.

The Ideal Candidate

Ideal Experience & Qualifications:

  • Sound technical forestry knowledge including the UK Forestry Standard
  • Experienced in manging people
  • Member of Institute of Chartered Foresters ideal
  • Woodland creation experience
  • Experience in developing forestry business.
  • Relevant forestry or land-based qualification, for example, B.Sc. or M.Sc. Forestry or related
  • IT literate - Word, Excel, Windows
  • Full Driving License

You will have the confidence to gain trust with, and inspire clients, maintain good relationships, be self-motivated and resourceful with the ability to communicate clearly and to work within a team as well as independently.
