£27,978.00 - £28,992.00 per year

Job number: RS00251

Permanent

We are seeking an individual with a passion to take an active role in the protection and management of the Borough’s trees. You will be a key resource with a sound technical knowledge and a clear understanding of how an arboricultural service fits within the council.

You will be self-motivated and able to work on your own initiative and manage tight deadlines, but also be able to contribute to the interdisciplinary work of the wider service.

To succeed in this role you will have an in-depth knowledge of tree issues along with excellent written and verbal communication skills. Experience of working with contractors, residents, Councillors and other departments to achieve best practice and retention of the council's overall tree stock is also an essential requirement. 

You will be an ideal candidate if you meet this criteria, are a member of a relevant trade organisation, have a valid driving licence, use of a vehicle and the flexibility to work outside normal working hours as necessary.

  • local government average salary pension scheme
  • free parking (4 days a week) if based at the Civic Centre
  • a 36-hour week for all full-time staff
  • generous holiday entitlement: a minimum 25 days a year (plus bank holidays), rising to 28 days after five years' service. For more senior positions holiday entitlements can rise to a maximum of 36 days
  • career breaks
  • flexible working hours
  • season ticket loan
