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.

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 and veteran woodland and trees, making our borough a great place to live and work.

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. You will be involved with the strategic management of a large urban and rural tree population, delivering the council-owned tree and woodland maintenance programme. Working closely with other tree officers, you will also assist with development and tree protection in the borough.

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.

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 call 01256 844844 and ask to speak to the Senior Tree Officer.

The council signs up to the Disability Confident scheme (formerly known as the ‘Two Ticks’ scheme). If you have declared a disability on the application form we can guarantee you an interview if you meet the essential criteria for the job.
