The Forestry Commission employs more than 3,000 people throughout Scotland, England and Wales.
We are a vibrant organisation with highly talented and motivated staff, working to improve people's lives through the many benefits that woods and forests can provide. We're contributing to efforts to tackle issues as varied as climate change and social exclusion, as well as conserving rare wildlife, providing great places for people to relax, producing sustainable timber, and helping other woodland owners to do the same. To find out more, visit Our People pages, or take a look at Our People Videos.
Many of our staff have come to work with us straight from school or university, and have stayed with us to build a satisfying career and enjoy the benefits of working for a respected Government department.
As well as competitive salaries, we offer our staff a generous holiday entitlement, pension, flexible benefits package and much more.
As an employer committed to equality of opportunity, we aim to employ a diverse workforce that reflects the people of Britain, and to offer challenging and rewarding careers for all our staff. Investor in People status means that we are committed to ensuring our staff are trained and developed to do their jobs well, and are provided with access to a range of learning opportunities.
