Overview

Join our Management Trainee Programme

Central Scotland

At Euroforest, our team spends eighty percent of their time out of the office, working with landowners to harvest their forests. No two days are the same, from felling areas ready to harvest, to building protection zones around wildlife habitats, or building roads to access new forests, anything could come your way.

Our employees are dedicated forestry enthusiasts using state of the art technology and latest industry thinking which have helped make Euroforest the UK’s largest independent timber harvesting and marketing company.

Timber is the most sustainable building product we have, so sustainability is at the heart of what we do.

In partnership with other group companies we work with landowners to manage, harvest and replant their forests.

In short, we look after the complete cycle of forestry – even our lorries are equipped with special tyres to protect fragile roads!

With you every step in the forest, your training will introduce you to all aspects of timber harvesting & marketing and ultimately give you your own team and area to look after.

We offer formal training through our established Trainee Manager Programme and throughout your training you will gain experience in every facet of timber harvesting and marketing.

You will have the opportunity to learn from and contribute to a dynamic company under the mentoring of an experienced manager.
