Do you have a passion for woodland creation? We have a fantastic opportunity within the Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust to work with us to expand and connect woodlands, and develop a forward strategy.

We are seeking maternity cover for the Technical and Administration Officer role to support the South Yorkshire Woodland Partnership team to deliver high quality creation of wooded habitats and tree establishment in South Yorkshire. This is an extremely exciting time for the Trust as we take the opportunity to contribute to the increase in woodland and tree cover in South Yorkshire and see the natural capital benefits this brings to people and wildlife.

You’ll be working as part of a team to engage landowners and others to develop woodland creation projects as part of SY WCP Project Pipeline.

As Technical and Administration Officer you will enable delivery of woodland creation targets within the South Yorkshire area of the Northern Forest by providing support to the team ranging from collation of enquiries, tracking and reporting on progress and casework.

This will be through working with partners to provide support in design and development of woodland creation projects, such as supporting the team with statutory consultations on woodland creation projects and ensuring relevant data is collated to enable grants and bids to be applied for. 

Bringing an eye for detail and a desire to efficiently support a busy team working with a range of partners, you will be in a position to learn and develop skills about the processes followed to plan, design and create woodland.

We will be looking for a dynamic individual who will effectively support and work with a team including manager, project officer, marketing and communications and GIS systems.

To support the delivery of the South Yorkshire Woodland Partnership aims, in particular the ambition to significantly increase woodland cover across the region, by providing technical & administrative support to the team.

Leading on the co-ordination and updating of the Project Pipeline to track progress of casework across the team, report progress to the Programme Manager and Steering Group.
