The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.

The Woodland Outreach Adviser will deliver woodland conservation outcomes from ancient woodland management, woodland creation, ancient and veteran tree management to wood pasture creation and management; contributing to the Trust’s objective of landscape scale ecological change. This will be achieved through providing appropriate advice to landowners and managers, managing contractors and consultants, and development and delivery of landscape scale projects and partnerships with other organisations.

You will help deliver a large-scale partnership initiative, so you’ll need experience working on landscape scale projects, ideally where this engages with individual farmers and landowners, organisations, businesses, and local authorities. In addition, you’ll need the ability to deliver through others including partnerships, contractors, and professional consultants.

You’ll be results driven and innovative, with a good knowledge of the relevant landscape and experience in woodland creation, both on the ground and advising others, alongside a good working knowledge of land management practices. An understanding of natural capital or payment for ecosystem services approaches, green finance, woodland carbon, and other ways to unlock funding and land for woodland creation would be beneficial.

The role is based in East Anglia and the successful candidates will need to be located within this area and be willing to travel.

There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team, you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training, and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.

At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.

We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.

We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.

We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.
