We are currently recruiting for an Arboricultural Officer to join our Tree Service.

Arboricultural Officers are the Council’s specialists in all matters relating to trees. This includes arboricultural management and processes; dealing with enquiries; and resolving public complaints concerning the Council’s tree stock. The successful candidate will be expected to oversee and implement tree management covering approximately half the County in partnership with colleagues whilst ensuring a holistic approach to tree management across the County. The role requires the candidate to deliver the tree management in accordance with current best practice, legislation and the Council’s tree policy.

The post will report directly to the Principal Officer Quality Assurance (North) but will benefit from a centrally-based professional lead (Principal Officer – Arboriculture) who will provide guidance and support for all other facets of the arboriculture workflows including legal, policy and financial aspects. The Principal Officer – Arboriculture works closely with the Arboricultural Officers to design and deliver tree survey protocols and programmes to meet and develop a pro-active approach to tree management by implementing a cyclical inspection regime.
