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 Site Manager will represent the Woodland Trust locally, managing Langley Vale Wood near Epsom in Surrey in line with the Trusts standards and ensuring the safety of our visitors, contractors and volunteers. Langley Vale Wood is our largest First World War Centenary Site; a woodland creation site, with open spaces, arable fields and margins and a newly built car park.
