Wirral is home to vibrant, energetic and engaged communities, people who take real ownership of their local area and are passionate about making Wirral a better place. The council and its partners have pledged to #BeTheDifference.

We’ve got ambitious targets to meet by 2025. To achieve everything we have promised to our residents, we need people who are driven and ready to deliver the very best for our communities - #BeTheDifference.

Wirral is a stunning place to live and work with an extensive tree population that our residents are rightly very proud of. There are many challenges to maintaining and enhancing this tree population and as such two committed tree officers are required to work across the highways and asset management; and parks and countryside departments to ensure that all trees within Wirral Council's estate are managed appropriately and that high arboricultural maintenance and tree risk management standards are adhered to.

We are seeking candidates with extensive experience in all aspects of arboricultural management to manage tree inspection and tree works contractors from a client's perspective and to liaise and communicate effectively with the residents of Wirral, local councillors, amenity and environment groups and Council colleagues in relation to tree matters and enquiries.

The successful candidate must have a level 5 qualification in arboriculture or forestry and have at least two years post qualification experience in arboricultural management and contractor relationship management.

Sound like you? Tell us why. Bring it on.
