We’re committed to managing land to adapt to climate change, secure carbon, improve biodiversity and create great places for the people of Scotland.

We are looking for five additional Area Managers for our South and North Regions, who will have responsibility for motivating a team and overseeing how we manage the land to meet a wide range of objectives.

We’re looking for someone who can successfully manage a team; can demonstrate leadership and make well informed decisions under pressure; have sound knowledge of land and forest management; and have some experience of budget management or collaborative working. If you would like to take the lead on managing part of rural Scotland, then we want to hear from you.
