Falkirk Woodland Officer
12 Month, Temporary Post
(Salary circa £27000 pro-rata)
The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) seeks to change the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east.
In partnership with Falkirk Council we are seeking applications from a suitably qualified and experienced individual to undertake a management planning exercise for all Falkirk Council’s owned woodlands and produce a 5-year work plan for priority sites.
Applications are sought from individuals with a degree in Forestry, or equivalent qualification, who have a track record of producing Long Term Forest Plans and Urban Woodland Management Plans. Applicants must have excellent communication skills, be computer literate, and confident in using GIS. They should also be solution-orientated self-starters.
As the majority of Falkirk’s woodlands are peri-urban, applicants should have experience and enthusiasm for managing WIAT woodlands.
This is a temporary 12 month post (35 hours per week) based in our offices in Shotts, North Lanarkshire. We offer flexible working arrangements and will consider part time hours for this position. Travel within Central Scotland will be required; a clean driving licence and access to a car are essential.
The closing date for applications is Friday 20 October 2017.
First interviews will be held on Monday 6 November 2017.
If required, second interviews will be held on Wednesday 8 November 2017.
This is an unpaid position, expenses remunerated.
Board membership offers a fantastic opportunity for an individual to support the delivery of the CSGN Vision, which is to ‘transform Central Scotland into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality’.
We are looking for applicants with a range of appropriate skills and experience to add to the capacity of the board, particularly individuals based in the centre and east of the CSGN area. We particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on our board such as women, disabled people and people aged under 40.
Board members typically contribute around 8 to 12 days a year made up of board and sub-committee meetings, working groups, partner engagement, events and tours.
