Job description

Forest Service is an Executive Agency of the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) in Northern Ireland. The agency’s forest policy is to promote the expansion of forest cover and sustainable forestry; and to manage its forest estate for timber production in support of economic growth; and in a way that provides greater opportunities for Northern Ireland citizens to benefit from enhanced biodiversity, recreation and tourism.

We are a multidisciplinary organisation, whose staff are drawn mainly from forestry, agriculture, industrial and administrative disciplines, and are currently seeking to fill a number of Forest Officer Grade III full-time vacancies that require forestry knowledge, skills and experience. Applications are invited from candidates who meet the eligibility criteria, to apply for this opportunity and challenge.

Forest Officer posts are based in Enniskillen (County Fermanagh), Newry (County Armagh) and Garvagh (County Londonderry). Forest Officer III is a mobile grade and successful candidates will be expected to work in any of the forests throughout Northern Ireland and to be posted to a number of operational bases during their employment. The Northern Ireland Civil Service operates a hybrid working policy within which Forest Officers may undertake their work from their assigned base and other remote working locations subject to business need.
