Falkirk Woodland Officer
12 Month, Temporary Post
(Salary circa £27000 pro-rata)

In partnership with Falkirk Council we are seeking applications from a suitably qualified and experienced individual to undertake a management planning exercise for all Falkirk Council’s owned woodlands and produce a 5-year work plan for priority sites.

Applications are sought from individuals with a degree in Forestry, or equivalent qualification, who have a track record of producing Long Term Forest Plans and Urban Woodland Management Plans. Applicants must have excellent communication skills, be computer literate, and confident in using GIS. They should also be solution-orientated self-starters.

As the majority of Falkirk’s woodlands are peri-urban, applicants should have experience and enthusiasm for managing WIAT woodlands.

This is a temporary 12 month post (35 hours per week) based in our offices in Shotts, North Lanarkshire. We offer flexible working arrangements and will consider part time hours for this position. Travel within Central Scotland will be required; a clean driving licence and access to a car are essential.
