Play a vital role in advising and contributing to the successful delivery of the England Trees’ Action Plan in England.
At Natural England, we advise the UK Government on the natural environment. We’re here to make sure people and nature can thrive. From advising farmers on sustainable land management, to gathering and analysing environmental data, and promoting health and wellbeing through the great outdoors, we love what we do. Join us and you’ll be part of an inclusive, motivated and ambitious team, committed to achieving results for our environment, for everyone.
We are seeking people who are keen to contribute to the successful long-term outcome of the Government’s aspiration to increase woodland cover across England. Natural England has a crucial role in helping to realise this ambition, both through provision of technical advice and by influencing how new tree establishment can contribute to nature recovery, climate resilience, flood risk mitigation, water quality and social benefits.
You will have a good ecological understanding of priority habitats and priority species and the opportunities and threats that woodland creation brings to these. You will have confidence in providing technical advice on this to our partners and a range of land managers.
The ability to prioritise workloads will be important.
The role will require travel to sites and meetings across the team areas and a driving licence is therefore required for the role. You will be part of a network of 22 Tree Action Plan Delivery advisers embedded in our 12 area teams.
We welcome and encourage applications from all communities and, wherever possible, we accommodate requests for both full and part-time hours and other flexible working patterns. Everyone at Natural England is supported to develop their skills and capabilities. You can also look forward to great benefits including a Civil Service pension.
