Company Information

The Forestry and Arboriculture division is part of the Rural management section of Savills, one of the largest land and property consultants in the UK, which employs over 6,000 people in 130 offices. The Forestry and Arboriculture division consists of 20 consultants working across the breadth of the country to deliver five main client services:

  1. Arboricultural consultancy
  2. Woodland management/consultancy
  3. New woodland creation
  4. Felling licence and grant applications
  5. Forest valuation

The team sits within a truly multidisciplinary working environment generating over £2,000,000 in Forestry and Arboricultural consultancy fees last year.

Being part of a large organisation, but operating as focused, localised teams means Savills offers excellent remuneration packages, generous holiday and pension provisions as well as industry leading training and development while still retaining the feel of a much smaller employer.

The Roles

Come and work as part of the Savills Forestry and Arboriculture discipline, providing advice to colleagues within Savills and external clients, on all aspects of arboricultural management including but not limited to tree condition and BS5837 surveys, tree risk management plans, risk zoning, amenity tree care as well as overseeing the delivery of remedial work.

Our clients range from large private estates through to institutions, local authorities to charities and blue chip companies to farmers. We could be providing advice on pruning a TPO tree, drafting a tree risk management plan for a 10,000 acre estate or contributing to planning application via an arboricultural impact assessment and full BS5837 survey.

This role requires strong technical and business skills and would suit a more experienced consultant.

The South east (Sevenoaks/Petworth/Winchester) role is to support the existing Senior Arboricultural Consultant in the delivery of an exciting and growing portfolio of work across the South East.
