The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an international organisation dedicated to ensuring that forests are managed in a responsible manner across the globe. FSC UK is a registered charity responsible for promoting the FSC’s aims and objectives throughout the United Kingdom.

A key element of FSC UK’s work is to promote responsible forestry and FSC forest management certification and to support and represent FSC forest management certificate holders. We are seeking a new member of our team to assist us in this work and to identify opportunities for FSC UK to engage with new or potential projects.

The Forestry Outreach Manager will interact with and complement the work of the Forest Standards Manager. While the Forest Standards Manager’s work is primarily technical, for example involving the maintenance of the UK national forest stewardship standard and controlled wood national risk assessment, the work of the Forestry Outreach Manager will be primarily outward-facing, promoting FSC’s values and the benefits of FSC certification to a wide range of stakeholders.
