We have two exciting new opportunities to work with the Woodland Management Team and roll out a programme of woodland biodiversity enhancement activities through the Mercian Woodland Biodiversity Project. One post covers Derbyshire, Notts, Warks and East Staffs, the other covers Gloucestershire, Avon, Herefordshire and the southern Marches. The Mercian Woodland Biodiversity Project is a collaboration between Severn Trent Water (STW) and Small Woods Association (SWA), the purpose of which is to increase biodiversity through creation or enhancement of habitats. SWA commit to improving 600ha by 15th March 2025. Small Woods Association has developed a major new project intended to boost the biodiversity of up to 600ha of woodland and hedgerow in the Severn and Trent river catchment areas through targeted, simple and effective management interventions. The project will run from April 2022 until December 2025. Severn Trent Water is working alongside SWA as project funder, ensuring continuity of attention to the biodiversity of the region’s woodlands. The role requires travel to and from woodland sites and successful candidates will be expected to undertake trips using their own vehicle with appropriate allowance from the project funding. Professional membership of the Institute of Chartered Foresters or another relevant professional body is desirable.
