Our client

A combination of providing a one stop shop service for their clients and an expansion in the sector has seen a surge in demand for their professional services.

Teams include specialists on forestry and woodland management, who advise on everything from large-scale commercial conifer forests through to small-scale mixed woodland blocks managed for their amenity value.

Well-managed woodlands on many estates are an important revenue stream and can also offer other benefits such as greater biodiversity and enhanced property values.

The Role

Grant funding is available for the creation and sustainable management of forests and woodland and will be a key aspect for the role. The market for timber can be niche and our specialists can use their local knowledge to identify and develop marketing opportunities.

There are differences in the schemes offered in England, Scotland and Wales and our team guide clients through the application process for each.

You will be based out of one of the many national offices covering England and Scotland.
