Fountains Forestry has been managing woodland in the UK since 1957. We provide expert services in all aspects of forest and associated land management, including acquisition and brokerage of forest and woodland properties.
Our team of professional forest managers work closely with forest and woodland owners to help them achieve their management objectives, and the sustainability of their woodlands.
Today, we are part of the F & W Forestry Services Group which globally manages approximately 900,000 hectares (over 2 million acres) of forests and woodland throughout North America, South America, the UK, and France.
We are seeking to recruit an experienced forester to take responsibility for the management of an existing portfolio of clients’ forests and estate woodlands and to build up this portfolio through new woodland creation and expansion of services.
The role will be based out of our satellite office on The Fonthill Estate, at Fonthill Bishop in Wiltshire, but flexible working arrangements can be accommodated. You will have a sound technical forestry knowledge and an understanding of commercial business practice, legislation, and relevant current issues.
You will be able to work on your own initiative but also as an integral part of a professional management team. With good communication and computer skills including GIS, you will undertake forest management and woodland establishment on a range of properties that will include budgeting, operations planning, contract organisation, supervision, timber marketing and grant applications.
