Spanning 200 square miles of central England, the National Forest is one of the country’s most ambitious and highly regarded environmental projects. It is about so much more than trees; pioneering new ways of working to reconnect people and businesses with nature, and create a place to grow together. For more than 20 years the National Forest Company has driven forward the vision for the National Forest, taking it from a leap of faith to the success story we see today: a restored forest landscape; an emerging visitor destination; and the active support of local communities. But there is so much more to do.

The Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan sets a new ambition to protect and enhance our natural environment. The National Forest is at the forefront of this approach with a strategy to create a resilient, accessible and sustainable Forest. To help realise these aspirations we are now seeking a talented and experienced Head of Land & Forestry who can help shape our future. You will be responsible for leading our forest creation activity, sustainable land management and support to the woodland economy, including securing income generation opportunities.

This role requires a land-based professional with commercial acumen who can lead and enable a diverse range of partners. You will bring a successful track record, a partnership approach, and the skills to operate in a complex environment. Above all, you will share our passion for the National Forest, be motivated to create a positive difference for future generations, and be inspired by this unique opportunity to make your mark with a national exemplar of sustainability.
