ABOUT US 

The Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring and protecting woodland. We own and care for over 1,000 woodland sites across the United Kingdom and support the creation and management of woodland on land outside the Trust's own estate.

THE ROLE 

Leading the Wales Outreach team, you will initiate and develop major Wales based partnerships with other organisations, leading the development of prioritised landscapes through our Treescapes program, focussing your efforts where this delivers greatest benefit. You will lead a team responsible for the delivery of targets for Key Performance Indicators covering the Trust's woodland creation and restoration of ancient wood objectives.

The Outreach Manager will be a key member of the Trust's management team in Wales supporting the Wales Director and other managers in delivering the Trust's programme in Wales.

THE CANDIDATE 

You'll need experience of working on landscape scale projects, a good knowledge of the techniques in woodland creation and ancient woodland restoration; be qualified to HND/degree level in forestry, land management or a related field with excellent leadership and communication skills. You'll be able to network and build effective partnerships to benefit the Woodland Trust.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

There's no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Whatever you do here you will be supporting our work to protect and enhance woods and trees. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance and good holiday entitlement.
