Job description

As the largest integrated forestry business in the UK, and a member of binderholz – Europe’s leading timber processing operation – BSW Group is a rapidly developing multisite business, with a turnover in excess of £650m and operations spanning forestry, sawmilling, timber manufacturing and energy.

Tilhill has, over the last 70+ years, planted more than 1 billion trees and, as a private company, has the greatest number of professionally qualified managers. We specialise in woodland creation and management, timber harvesting and buying, and landscaping. We strive at all times to provide an unrivalled service to our clients and customers. Tilhill is at the forefront of the provision of nature-based solutions that help fight climate change in the most natural way.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to be a key member of our North Highland forestry team in the role of Forest Manager, based in Aberdeenshire.

In this role you will be responsible for delivering a professional high-quality woodland management service to our existing clients together with other on-going forestry related
opportunities, including woodland creation. The role includes building sound client relationships and, day to day, the preparation of client estimates, production of reports, implementation and control of work programmes and grant applications, initially in support of more senior forest managers. Candidates should be comfortable working from their own initiative but more importantly working as part of an established Forest Management and Business Support team based within the North Highland Area.

The role offers a healthy balance between on-site and office-based activity. The location of our Aberdeenshire office space is currently being reviewed and you will be involved in this discussion.
