About our organisation
The Soil Association, formed in 1946, is the only UK charity which works across the spectrum of human health, the environment and animal welfare. That’s because we cannot tackle these issues in isolation.
We campaign for change, we support farming innovation, we serve healthy food in communities, we support and grow the organic market, and we protect forests. We couldn’t do any of this without our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world where it’s needed the most.
Soil Association Certification offers a huge range of organic and sustainable certification schemes across food, farming, catering, health and beauty, textiles and forestry which are recognised and trusted by consumers and businesses around the world. We’re the UK’s leading organic certifier – you’ll find our symbol on over 70% of organic products.
About the opportunity
The Forestry team is mainly based in Bristol, UK but has staff and representatives based in Europe too. We are a friendly tight knit team who help each other out and often work across several portfolios. We are responsible for FSC and PEFC certification activities in over 40 countries for both Forestry and Chain of Custody. This means there are loads of challenges, rewards and opportunities. Your work will be managing a team looking after our Forest Management certificates in the UK, Ireland, US and Australia. This involves interacting with stakeholders, certificate holders and auditors to ensure we meet all of their differing requirements. Much of the work is office based but with opportunity for travel under normal circumstances.
