North East Scotland

Forest Manager

As part of our development plan in the North-East of Scotland, a vacancy has arisen for a suitably qualified Forest Manager to join our progressive team to service both our existing client base and expanding business. We service this area from our Fochabers office.

The role involves all aspects of woodland establishment, restructuring and management from planning through to, and including, harvesting. The position includes the requirement to prepare and manage budgets, report writing, grant scheme applications, cost control, planning of operations and site supervision.

Applicants must be self-motivated and be capable of working on their own initiative and as part of our expanding professional team. The successful applicant should ideally have a minimum of 2-3 years' operational experience and have a good understanding of the Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme. Experience on timber harvesting would be desirable but not essential.

In addition, the applicant should have a good working knowledge and understanding of site planning, working with contractors and site safety management, along with good communication skills and organisational ability.

In return, we offer an attractive remuneration package commensurate with experience, within a substantially employee-owned company.

Applications should be made in writing (stating current salary/salary expectation), along with CV. Please confirm the position you are applying for. Please email:

We are an equal opportunities employer.
