Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) is an agency of the Scottish Government. We’re looking for enthusiastic, practical, creative people to join the South Region planning team to help shape the future of Scotland’s forests and land.
Our South Region is one of five within FLS and covers some of the most beautiful scenery including the Isle of Arran, Galloway and Ae Forests. We produce approximately 1 million cubic metres of conifer timber annually with a correspondingly large restock programme, roading programme and an increasing thinning programme.
South Region is also a focus for recreation provided via formal walking trails, mountain bike routes and visitor centres as well as being a focus for wind energy.
A Planner’s main role is to prepare Land Management Plans. This is a facilitation role, which requires you to work with others. You will be keen to explore the consequences of management options, provide practical solutions and think long term.
A Work Programme Manager prepares and coordinates a diverse range of work streams that implement the Land Management Plans. This role combines leadership with logistical skills. The role requires you to juggle the sequence and scale of a range of work across a large geographic area.
Both roles will appeal to people who are happy to get out and about to gain first-hand knowledge of the land and management issues. The planning teams work with others, encourage lateral thinking and problem solving, and aim to make the most of the opportunities that the land has to offer.
