Tree Officer

The borough of Waverley is one of the most wooded areas in the country and prides itself on trees being a key feature of the area and its Greenspaces.

Do you want to be part of an experienced, enthusiastic and multi-disciplinary team responsible for managing and protecting the Boroughs treescape whilst ensuring the public’s safety and access to this key element of Greenspace?

Are you looking for a role with variety, where your expertise and experience will assist the Councils Tree & Woodland officer and team in the provision of arboricultural services?

Do your skills currently include a sound knowledge of tree species, tree safety, legislation, and an ability to negotiate effectively to achieve desired outcomes?

As a qualified professional with strong people and communication skills, you will have sound knowledge of specifying and supervising tree works to industry standards and be conversant with the various aspects of tree risk management.

This is the perfect opportunity to join us and develop further skills in those areas where perhaps you have not yet had direct experience and further develop your career.

This post is a full-time role. However, all applications will be considered.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Arno Spaarkogel Tree & Woodland Officer 01483 523444, or Matthew Lank Greenspaces Manager on 01483 523190.

We do not accept CVs without a completed application form. Strictly no agencies please.

Interview date:  Thursday 27 October 2022

Please note we do not accept applications after the time given on the advert.
