Planting tomorrow’s great native woodland


The Heart of England Forest is an exciting and ambitious charity.  We want to help reverse centuries of woodland decline and plant one of the largest forests in England. Our goal is to create a huge, unbroken woodland – a refuge from the modern world where people can rediscover nature and wildlife can flourish. It’s an ambitious vision, which we’re determined to make happen, one tree at a time.


Assistant Forest Ranger (Salary - £20,000 p/a)


The Heart of England Forest is the premier woodland creation charity in England. We have already created the largest new native broadleaf woodland in England and continue on our mission to grow a 30,000-acre contiguous forest. Not only is our forest expanding, so too is our team, and we have some exciting opportunities for you to join our expert forestry team based in South Warwickshire / Worcestershire.


This role is ideal for someone wishing to develop a wide range of forestry skills and experience for career development. This role will give the successful candidate an opportunity to grow and shape England’s largest new native broadleaf woodland, whilst gaining practical experience on the job. We are looking for an enthusiastic team player who is keen to learn and has a “can do” attitude.


The role will support our Forest Rangers with an emphasis on public access and forest maintenance. The winter months will predominantly be tree planting when you will join the rest of the forestry team.


You will also support volunteer and corporate work parties when required, and as well as practical forestry you will be involved in widening public access and improving our diverse range of biodiversity via habitat creation and management.


You will be a passionate ambassador for the charity, so good communication skills are a must. If this sounds like you, and you are a self-motivated person able to work both autonomously and as part of a small team, then please apply.
