A degree of excellence – Tilhill Forestry seeks quality graduates

Tilhill Forestry is seeking graduates with drive, passion and enthusiasm who are interested in a career within the forest sector with the industry’s leading company.

High-achieving forestry graduates, or those studying for a degree or about to graduate in forestry or related subjects such as land management, environmental studies or horticulture, will be ideally placed to join Tilhill Forestry’s three-year graduate programme. Successful applicants are assigned to a district office or business stream where they learn every aspect of that area, including shadowing highly experienced colleagues. Graduate trainees are offered mentoring and are paired with a experience manager during their training period.

Tilhill Forestry Managing Director George McRobbie said: “This is a very exciting time to join the forest industry and Tilhill Forestry is a superb company to work for with a wide variety of roles across the UK on offer. There is the added benefit of being part of the BSW Group – BSW is the UK’s largest sawmill company.

“We are looking for graduates with drive, enthusiasm and passion for managing and creating forests and working outdoors.”

Tilhill Forestry offers all its employees a friendly and challenging work environment with good personal and career development opportunities. The company operates a unique management development programme that starts by building up your management skill sets in order to give them all the tools required to be our managers of the future.
