Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Sunday, 8th April 2018  


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 Woodland Outreach Manager will lead the Outreach Team in Wales. The role will deliver a programme of advice and support to landowners, woodland managers and partners outside the Trust’s estate. This includes the creation, protection and restoration of woods and trees within prioritised landscapes as well as supporting policy and advocacy work.

The post will be key in developing strategic relationships across wales to ensure trees and woods are an integral element of plans and projects. The Woodland Outreach Manager must ensure that the outreach team offers high standards of practical advice to deliver woodland creation and ancient woodland restoration targets.

Initiating, developing and seeking agreement to landscape-scale, multi-level partnerships will be a core element of the role along with the need to secure the necessary resources and relationships for implementing change.


You’ll need to have a good understanding, and practical experience, of effective woodland creation and management. You’ll have excellent inter-personal skills and possess the ability to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders in the land management sector.

A working knowledge of agri-environment grants and other appropriate support mechanisms will be a basic requirement and you’ll need experience of leading successful, focused teams.

It would be desirable for the post holder to speak Welsh but this is not essential


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.
