Graduate Development Programme

The 2015/16 Graduate Development Programme is now closed to applications. We will update this page once we have further information for 2016/17.

We look for people with the potential to become our future leaders. If you have a 2:1 degree or higher, 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.  Some of this will be in an operational forestry environment where you will need to quickly learn a wide range of basic forestry terms and skills.  You will also have some shorter placements or secondments that 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. 

Yopu will need a full current driving licence that enables you to drive in the UK.  However, we are willing to consider any proposals that would allow you to do the job by other means.

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

Starting Salary c £24,000
