Forestry and Sawmill Worker needed!


We are delighted to announce that, thanks to grants from the Prince's Countryside Fund and Scottish Forestry, we are setting up a sawmill at Tiroran Community Forest, and are recruiting for a forestry worker to operate it!

We are looking for someone with relevant forestry and/or sawmill experience, and a strong community focus. 

Initially the post is for two days a week and on a one-year contract. However, it is hoped that, with the success of the sawmill, more hours and a permanent contract could be offered in time. Starting salary of £24,960 per annum pro rata, (£9,984 0.4 FTE). It is very likely that some additional hours will be available carrying out a range of tasks within the forest.

If you think you have the skills, experience and drive to make a success of this post, SWMID would welcome the opportunity to hear from you!
