Forestry England is the largest land manager and custodian of the nation’s public forests. We have around 1,000 committed staff looking after more land and more trees than any other organisation. It’s a job that never stops growing.

Since 2010 Forestry England has been an important partner in delivering the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship Scheme that focuses on restoring and enhancing this internationally important habitat. We are now looking for an experienced Wetland Restoration Officer to help manage and deliver our award-winning wetland habitat restoration and maintenance programme.

A natural problem solver, you’ll have a sound understanding of wetland restoration principles and techniques, and experience of managing the delivery of works on the ground. You’ll also be a good communicator, able to engage with a wide range of stakeholders to get agreement for restoration proposals.

This is an exciting time to join the South Forest District as we look to secure and grow our economic, social, and natural capital of our forests. In return, we offer an attractive salary and benefits package including generous annual leave and a government pension scheme. We also provide a range of training and learning opportunities to help you develop your skills.
