Newbattle Abbey College is Scotland's national adult education residential college, set within an historic 16th century building and 125 acres of ancient woodland and parkland. We are seeking to recruit a Community Woodland Ranger to be part of our Community Forest Project, which includes the development of Scotland's first Forest College. 


The successful applicant will be expected to engage target communities, encouraging them to make use of the woodlands, and to manage the woodland area. They will work in partnership with our Forest College Co-ordinator.


We are looking for a qualified candidate who has the ability to develop partnerships with local communities, including schools, community groups and volunteers, particularly in areas of deprivation. Experience of working in an outdoor recreation or woodland environment is essential.  Good communication skills, both verbal and written, are necessary to engage with a diverse range of audiences, together with the ability to develop printed materials for the project. In return, we offer a competitive salary, a generous holiday allowance and the opportunity to join our Pension Scheme where the college contributes 18.9%.
