About the job

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced arboriculturist to join our multi-disciplinary team, helping to manage the trees and woodlands across North Hampshire. Working closely with other arboriculturists, ecologists and landscape architects, you will have a central role in shaping the natural environment of a borough that is proud to do things differently.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual who is passionate about the natural environment to help deliver a forward thinking arboricultural service. This high-profile role will be responsible for delivering the council’s statutory duties for the protection of trees. You will be managing the Tree Preservation Order (TPO) and Conservation Area (CA) systems, including compliance and enforcement where breaches occur. You will also be influencing development of the borough by guiding the council on decisions for planning applications.

In return, we know that every single employee at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council makes a difference. We are keen for you to share and develop your skills as an arboriculturist and we will welcome you into a friendly and highly effective team of professionals with big ambitions for the borough and its environment.

Basingstoke is a dynamic and expanding town with an evolving urban forest, surrounded by beautiful Hampshire villages and the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We place great value on our large and diverse tree resource which includes ancient woodland and ancient and veteran trees, making our borough a great place to live and work.

We offer flexible working, generous leave entitlement, a car allowance, a pension scheme and a health care cash plan scheme - just some of the many reasons why you should come and work for us. If you would like to discuss the role further, please visit: or call 01256 844 844 and ask to speak to the Senior Tree Officer.
