Job Description


Assistant Trees and Woodlands Officer
Various locations

Salary: £22,956 - £26,919
Hours: 36 per week

We're looking for Assistant Trees and Woodlands Officers to join our Forestry team within Parks, Greenspace, and Cemeteries service, and ensure that Council-owned trees in parks, gardens, street walkways and woodlands are safely and effectively managed whilst ensuring the amenity value of Scotland's capital treescape is maintained and enhanced.

You will be responsible for a range of specialist equipment, and supervision of seasonal or volunteer staff may be required.

You will be based primarily at our office within Inverleith Park, but you will be required to work throughout Edinburgh and surrounding area to assess tree condition at various locations. Working flexibly is required. You must be motivated and be able to deliver work safely and to schedule in a potentially hazardous working environment and in doing so to manage risk effectively.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range. For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.

The successful candidate will be required to obtain a basic Disclosure Scotland certificate prior to starting in the role.
