The role will involve dealing with public enquiries relating to trees, inspecting the tree stock, specifying necessary tree works, liasing with Contractors, keeping the inventory up to date and managing the tree project budget. Candidates will ideally have experience working in a similar Local Authority environment and be educated to a minimum Level 3 in Arboriculture.
