Student Placements at Westonbirt Arboretum

23 November, 2016

We would like to promote the following vacancy from the Westonbirt Tree Team:

Heritage Landscape Arborist 2017/18
12 month work based student placement within the Westonbirt Tree Team
Forestry Commission, Westonbirt, The National Arboretum

Westonbirt are offering two work-based placements next year, and would therefore welcome expressions of interest from students.  The placement duration is 51 weeks beginning in June or July 2017, and is specifically designed for mid-year students.  The successful applicant will be employed by the Forestry Commission, with the usual conditions, pay and leave entitlement.  Unfortunately, Westonbirt are unable to provide accommodation but should be able to point people in the right direction.

Westonbirt believe that they have an exciting opportunity on offer. Their work based placement has proved to be successful and rewarding for both parties over a number of years. Please follow this link for a brief outline of the placement.

CVs from interested students should be sent with a covering letter to the Curator Mark Ballard,  Mark.ballard@forestry.gsi.gov.uk by 31 January 2017.
