Logo: The Heart of England Forest Forestry Intern


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.


Forestry Intern (Salary - £18,720 p/a)

Fixed term contract – 1 year

This training role is ideal for a budding forester early in their career wishing to develop a wide range of forestry skills, experience and competencies for career progression. Ideally suited for someone changing to or starting a career in forestry as no experience is necessary but a clear need and commitment to the environment must be demonstrated. This is a unique role which 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.


In this role you will work with and be supported by our forestry team to deliver operational plans to ensure that the Heart of England Forest achieves the aims and objectives set out in its strategic plan. This will include practical forestry planting and maintenance working with the staff team, volunteers, corporate supporters and contractors to achieve our vision of a 30,000-acre contiguous woodland.


As well as gaining skills in practical forestry focused mainly on woodland establishment you will be involved in widening public access and encouraging people and wildlife. You will also be supported to undertake your own specialist project across the duration of the internship, and evidence gathered as part of the project delivery can then be used to form a portfolio in order to demonstrate skills and experience gained throughout the internship.


We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is keen to learn and has a “can do” attitude, who will be a passionate ambassador for the charity.


Closing date: Sunday 8th September

Interview date: Thursday 19th September
