Exciting new opportunity in Dunnet Community Forest

Since successfully completing our buyout of the Forest, Dunnet Forestry Trust have lots of ambitious plans. 

Could you be the Forest Development Officer to help us realise them?

We are looking for someone with boundless enthusiasm, deeply committed to sharing with others a belief in the value of community activity in developing the Forest for everyone.

You will need to be good at communicating with all kinds of people at all kinds of levels as we want you to recruit the widest possible range of volunteers to help us maintain and develop the Forests facilities. 

We particularly want to engage young people and those who might feel access to the Forest is a challenge for any reason.

You will need a full UK driving licence, experience of working in woodland would be great as would working with people of all ages and abilities. But most of all we want energy and a can do attitude.

We will give you training on the use of all our equipment, including an option to attend a chainsaw training course.  We would also like you to attend a Forestry First Aid Course even if you already have First Aid training.

The post has funding in place for five years for 20 hours per week, including weekend working, at a rate of £13.45 per hour.

Appointment will be for a probationary period of three months initially and subject to two satisfactory references and PVG registration.

For a full job description and to apply please email: info@dunnetforest.org

Closing date: 27th June 2021

Convince us you are the person to find and train the volunteers we need to power us on our journey. 

We dont just want to be the most northerly community forest - we want to be the best.
