About Us

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity.  We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring and protecting woodland. We own and care for over 1,000 woodland sites across the United Kingdom and support the creation and management of woodland on others’ land.

The Role

We’re looking for an Assistant Site Manager to join the Estate team and support our Site Manager in the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire region as well as other Site Managers across the South East.

In this role, you will assist the Site Manager with the planning, procurement and management of 34 woodlands covering 800 hectares, which will include day to day land based operations, liaison with neighbours and the public and to maximise the opportunity for visitor engagement, community and volunteer engagement at key sites.

Using Woodland Trust systems and databases you will carry out tree inspections, recording, risk assessments and implement planned works.

The Candidate

You will need previous experience of  working in the forestry or conservation sector in a land based role.  Specifically you’ll need experience of working with and managing countryside contracts and contractors, volunteer schemes and have engaged with a wide variety of countryside users, visitors and neighbours.  Ideally you will have a relevant qualification to support your experience.

With a positive and results focussed approach  you’ll be determined to seek successful outcomes from every scenario. You’ll be able to work and communicate with others effectively, be commercially aware and flexible to changing demands.  You’ll be organised and thorough and have high standards and expectations for the works you manage.

A full driving licence or the ability to undertake travel across a wide area, sometimes to remote locations is a must.  You will be expected to live within, or very close to the counties listed against the post.

What You Can Expect

There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Whatever you do here you will be supporting our work to protect and enhance woods and trees. In return we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance and good holiday entitlement.
