Working with Us
Careers with Scottish Woodlands
Scottish Woodlands provides a comprehensive range of both traditional and evolving forestry and land-related services, underpinned by our unique staff ownership structure, in-depth market experience, knowledge base and commitment to quality. The company is 80% employee-owned, and as you will see on the ‘contact us’ page, we have offices across the UK with around a 150 staff in total. Scottish Woodlands has been offering forest management services for over 50 years as an incorporated company, with our roots reaching over a century. However, during that time, we have been at the forefront of innovation and industry best practice; and continue in this endeavour today.
Scottish Woodlands offers an attractive salary and benefits package, commensurate with experience to those with a passion for trees and enthusiasm to do a good job in a rural setting. The benefits package includes pension, life assurance, private healthcare, company vehicle (depending on job function), cycle to work scheme, and the opportunity for equity participation.
As well as trees, we like to grow our own staff – some have progressed to director-level throughout their careers. For relevant positions, forest managers are encouraged to be Members of the Institute of Chartered Foresters. Elsewhere, we employ chainsaw operators and arboriculturalists with the relevant qualifications, or specialists with expertise in other areas such as corporate services.
New opportunities arise from time to time; and will be advertised on this web page as well as through other channels - usually within the industry - so please keep an eye on any vacancies which may be of interest.
