Assistant Outreach Adviser – Northern England

Woodland Trust


The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world
where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to
make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and
create our vital woods and trees.


The Assistant Outreach Adviser will assist with delivering conservation impact through
creation, restoration, and sustainable management of native wooded habitats on land outside the
Trust’s own estate, contributing to the Trust’s objective of landscape scale ecological

We are offering the opportunity to learn on the job, providing development and building
technical skills in order for the Assistant Outreach Adviser to provide advice to landowners
and land managers, particularly farmers, to increase native tree cover on their landholdings,
through creation of new woodland and agroforestry, as well as providing advice on sustainable
management of existing wooded habitats on the landholding where appropriate. 

The role will also entail administrative work such as preparing funding applications and
mapping using GIS. 

A company car will be provided for this role. This is a 2-year fixed term contract opportunity.


This is an excellent development opportunity for the right person to help deliver the Woodland
Trust’s vision at scale in a key landscape, so you’ll need to be willing to learn. You’ll need
a passion for conservation and understanding of the role of trees and woods as part of
functioning ecosystems and understanding of land management issues.

You’ll be results driven and able to collaborate and work well in a team, you’ll need some good
knowledge of land management practices, and an ability to understand and engage with landowners
and land managers from a variety of different practices and backgrounds.

Our Organisational Nature enables us to better understand what it means to be part of the
Woodland Trust, empowering us to make an impact, every day. We want you to be able to role
model our values; ‘Grow Together’, ‘Focus’, ‘Explore’ and ‘Make it Count’ to ensure each of us
plays our part in helping to protect, restore and create our woods and trees.


There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your
contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our
people. You’ll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development,
along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity
to work flexibly from home.
