Do you want to make a difference?
Here at Eastleigh Borough Council, we are committed to making a positive difference for all the residents, businesses and visitors to Eastleigh and we are proud to be delivering on our promise to create sustainable and healthy communities and increase employment and wellbeing opportunities for all.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Tree Officer to join the Green Spaces service, a new team which brings together Ecology, Trees, Country Parks, Countryside Services and Land Management to work together to manage and enhance green infrastructure across Eastleigh borough.
We are seeking enthusiastic individuals to join the Ecology and Trees team to manage our statutory functions such as responding to planning consultations, TPO administration and field work to ensure the health of our woodland and trees. In addition to these core responsibilities, there will be the opportunity to work on various projects, including planting 160,000 new trees, contributing to biodiversity net gain schemes and working closely with our tree nursery.
You will have a genuine appreciation of trees in their natural setting and will also have extensive experience of managing trees in a town planning context. With the Council recognising the Climate Change and Environmental Emergency, managing both our current and future tree stock has never been more important. If you would like to be part of our ambitious approach, then we would love to hear from you.
Professional membership of the Institute of Chartered Foresters or another relevant professional body is desirable.
