Forestry Commission Wales offers a variety of work experience placements across Wales. A limited number are available each year which are offered to young people in full-time education.
All of our Work Experience Placements are Forestry based and include elements of our varied work, such as:
- Harvesting and Marketing
- Silviculture Operations
- Civil Engineering
- Policy and Administration
- Renewable Energy
You can find out more by reading a Press Release.
How to Apply
Our Placements follow a formal procedure with written agreement required before a work programme is developed. A host and mentor are designated for each placement.
Applications for work experience placements with Natural Resources Wales are now closed until 01/05/14 due to a high volume of enquiries. No new applications will be considered until after this date. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Not in full-time education?
Forestry and woodland contractors in Wales may be offering apprenticeship opportunities – Forestry Commission Wales encourages this through our Long Term Harvesting Contracts. You will need to contact the individual contractors for these opportunities.
If you are not in full-time education but would still like to learn about the work of Forestry Commission Wales, we sometimes have volunteering opportunities available. For more information about volunteering please contact Richard Davies.
