About the Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is one of the UK’s leading conservation charities. We have over 500,000 members and supporters and more than 1,000 sites all over the UK.

We believe life’s better with trees. We protect and campaign on behalf of the UK’s woods, plant more trees, and restore ancient woodland, for the benefit of wildlife and people.

The role

We are looking for a Woodland Warden at Cabin Wood to support the site manager in monitoring the condition of the wood, reporting any damage, maintenance issues, incidents and also noting interesting wildlife. You will be our eyes and ears on the ground and your role will contribute towards the Woodland Trust’s strategy of protecting, restoring and creating woods and trees for the benefit of people and wildlife across the UK.

Cabin Wood is a river-edged tranquil woodland and was once part of the Killymoon Castle estate. Follow its circular stone path through the mix of ancient woodland and newer planting and you’ll find stunning wildflower displays in spring, spectacular views of the castle and countryside, abundant wildlife, and rich autumn colour – and it’s all just one kilometre from town.

You will have an understanding of the needs of the public and native wildlife, a genuine interest in conservation and woodlands and a reasonable degree of physical fitness.

This role is best suited to someone living within 30 miles of the site.
