The Eaton Estate

This is an exciting and challenging training and development post; and an opportunity to be part of the progressive and forward-looking Grosvenor Forestry and Conservation Team (FACT).

The post is based at the Grosvenor Timberworks on Eaton Estate in Cheshire. The post reports to the Forestry Foreman who will provide direction, support and feedback through regular meetings and take responsibility for planning and monitor tasks and their quality. The Forestry Roots post will work with various teams including the foresters and sawmiller at Eaton, and the foresters at Reay and Abbeystead.

The main purpose is to use the time to gain valuable knowledge and experience of the forestry and timber processing industry.

The work involves a wide range of forestry and timber processing duties associated with the day-to-day management of the Grosvenor woodlands. Guidance and supervision will be given by the Forestry Foreman and Deputy Head of Forestry.

The work and role are important for maintaining and developing the quality environment which the Grosvenor Estate is well known for.
