ABOUT US
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 ROLE
The Carbon Projects Officer will support the project management of Trust estate and third-party carbon code projects by supporting departments including Land & Property and Estate & Woodland Outreach, in order to deliver carbon on the ground and meet long term carbon code requirements.

The role will include supporting the Carbon Projects Manager by monitoring and evaluation of projects, visiting sites and communicating our carbon approach to internal and external audiences.

This is a 3-year Fixed Term Contract.

THE CANDIDATE
With basic knowledge or experience of working within woodland creation for carbon outcomes, you’ll have an understanding of woodland creation and site surveys, grant mechanisms and the Woodland Carbon Code.

You’ll be analytical, self-motivated and proactive and be able to build and nurture effective relationships with key internal and external stakeholders in order to deliver on multiple projects.

WHAT TO EXPECT BY JOINING A TEAM AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE
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.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At the Woodland Trust, we want to reflect and represent the full richness of diversity in the UK. Fewer of our employees are Black, Asian or minority ethnic; disabled; from lower socio-economic backgrounds or under 25; so we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are from one or more of these groups. We can also discuss anything you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process. We assess your application solely on your demonstrated suitability for the job. Nothing else.
We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications. If you are interested, we'd encourage you to submit your application as early as possible
