We are Forestry England. We are the country’s largest land manager, caring for the nation’s forests for people, nature and the economy. The foundation of our organisation is our world-class sustainable management of the nation’s forests.
Our South England Forest District team is made up of around 160 people and contains a diverse range of roles. From wildlife rangers to marketing professionals, we all contribute towards the management of some 46,000 hectares (ha) of public forest estate and national parks.
Much of this forest is of high national importance for nature conservation and wildlife, and of international importance for biodiversity. Our District is responsible for land that includes Special Areas of Conservation (SACs), Special Protection Areas (SPAs), Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Ramsar sites, and Areas of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB).
The New Forest forms an important part of the land that we manage. The job holder will join a team that delivers a programme of landscape-scale habitat restoration across 20,000 ha of Crown Lands within the New Forest, supported by funding from the New Forest Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scheme.
As Habitat Restoration Officer, you will oversee the delivery of an ambitious programme of work to improve the condition of these special habitats by planning and managing projects that will restore open habitats and pasture woodlands in the New Forest.
