About the job
Forest Services are the Government’s forestry experts. We advise nationally and locally on how to unlock the full potential of woodlands and the forestry sector to protect, improve and expand England’s valuable woodland assets. The National Grants and Regulations (SFMNGR) team is part of Forest Services (FS). The main functions of the NGR team are incentives, regulations and tree health.
The NGR team have lead responsibility for the operation of forestry regulations such as felling licences, for enforcement activity and for grant delivery supporting woodland management other than the Public Forest Estate. Delivery of these functions on the ground is locally managed, so the national team primarily provides guidance and support for the Area Grants and Regulations teams and Administration Hubs.
There are many interactions across the functions of the NGR team that consists of the National Incentives Team, Regulations Team, Non RDPE Incentives Team, Compliance and Admin Hub Teams and the post holder will work closely with all parts of the NGR team.
