About Us
The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest 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
As Assistant Site Manager within Central Scotland you will have responsibility to support and assist the Site Managers in Scotland in the management of Woodland Trust Scotland (WTS) estate. The sites will predominately be in urban woodlands within Central Scotland. The role will involve the supervision of contracts to the highest professional standard, ensuring full compliance with our FSC certification and in accordance with all Woodland Trust Health and Safety policies and procedures, to deliver the maximum benefit for the Trusts aims as outlined in its Strategic Plan.

You will assist with planning, procurement and management of day to day land based operations, liaise with neighbours and the public and 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
With a relevant qualification and previous experience in land-based management in either the conservation or commercial sector, you’ll have a keen interest in urban forestry as well as a proven knowledge and responsibility for management of Health and Safety and management of volunteer/community projects. You will have direct experience of managing contracts and contractors to deliver site based work and feel confident in your use of IT systems such as MS office.

Due to the location and nature of the role a full driving licence and/or the ability to undertake travel across a wide area is essential.

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.
