Area Ecologist (Forestry and Land Scotland)

Are you passionate about the protection and management of species, habitats, and cultural heritage?

It’s an exciting time to join us as everything we do will play a key role in delivering the biodiversity and climate change objectives for Scotland. We’re looking for enthusiastic, practical, motivated environmental/ecology specialists to join our Planning and Environment teams within our East and West Regions, to help deliver a range of environmental objectives.  Supported by two Environment Rangers, you will play a key role in scoping and planning environmental programmes and advise on environmental protection and conservation management.  Alongside providing a key service to the business through ensuring compliance with legislation and providing detailed mitigation, you will help prepare management plans, manage surveys and data, and contribute to national initiatives and projects that conserve and enhance Scotland’s forests and land.

We live and work in a spectacular part of the country, with great access to outdoor activities, but never far from major towns either. You can find out more about where we live and work on our website.

Working at Forestry and Land Scotland is all about ‘People, Pride and Purpose.’ Join us and take pride in helping look after something incredibly valuable to the people of Scotland and its visitors – Scotland’s national forests and land.

We’re proud of our people.  At FLS, you’ll work with over a thousand talented, innovative, and committed people who enjoy a range of flexible working options and are supported in their own development. You’ll work in a role with a clear purpose to spearhead the fight against climate change in Scotland, support the economy, protect and enhance the environment and habitats for wildlife, and bringing increased positive benefits to the people of Scotland.
