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 others’ land.

THE ROLE 

As Site Manager for Essex, you will represent the Woodland Trust locally, managing a diverse portfolio of woodlands to deliver the maximum benefit for our core aims. You will manage the woodland estate in line with our required standards and guidelines and ensure the safety of yourself, our visitors, contractors and volunteers on our sites.

THE CANDIDATE 

With a relevant qualification and previous experience in land-based management in the forestry or conservation sector, you’ll have a strong track record of budget and contract management, successful relationship building and a proven responsibility for the management of Health and Safety on site. You’ll need to be solution focussed with excellent communication skills, be commercially aware and be able to work collaboratively. The Site Manager will be expected to live within, or within a reasonable travel distance of the management area.

 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.
