Forestry England is the largest land manager and custodian of the nation’s public forests. We have around 1,000 committed staff looking after more land and more trees than any other organisation. It’s a job that never stops growing.
We are looking for an experienced Beat Manager to manage our forestry operations in the South Downs or Micheldever in Hampshire. Both sites have over 3,000ha of mixed woodlands that are actively managed for people, nature and the economy including timber production.
As Beat Manager, you’ll use your extensive knowledge in forestry and land management to lead our safe and sustainable forestry operations and ensure we fulfill out supply contracts to our sawmill customers. With excellent people skills, you’ll also manage, motivate and inspire a small team of staff to ensure we deliver our forestry work safely and to a high standard. You’ll also be confident working with a range of external stakeholders including visitors, contractors, local authorities, national parks and environmental organisations.
This is an exciting time to join the South Forest District as we look to secure and grow our economic, social, and natural capital of our forests. In return, we offer an attractive salary and benefits package including generous annual leave and a government pension scheme. We also provide a range of training and learning opportunities to help you develop your skills.
