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.
Natural Resources Wales are no longer accepting work experience applications for the summer of 2014 as all placements have been allocated.
Applications for placements to be taken from September 2014 will be considered from 01.06.14. Please do not apply until after this date.
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.
