Graduate Management Programme

The 2017/18 Graduate Management Programme is now open for applications.

We look for people with the potential to become our future leaders. If you have:

  • a 2:1 degree or higher, in a science degree related to the environment or land management, civil engineering, forestry or from a business studies discipline,
  • and a GCSE in English and Maths at grade C or above

it could be for you.

This is a permanent appointment starting with a two year programme that will give you varied, stimulating and challenging work. During year one, you will be placed in South England Forest District based at Lyndhurst, in an operational forestry environment where you will need to quickly learn a wide range of basic forestry terms and skills. During year two, you will be based at either Bristol National Office or another office location within England. Both placements will help to broaden and develop your understanding of the business.

Participating in our Graduate Programme will provide you with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to continue your career in a role that suits your strengths and aspirations.

The successful applicant must be able to take up appointment at the end of July or during August 2017. The exact start date is negotiable.

Successful candidates will be required to undertake a Basic Disclosure check in line with the cabinet office Baseline Security Standard.
