Dundreggan Nursery Worker

Are you green fingered enough to grow a forest?

As part of our Caledonian Forest restoration strategy, Trees for Life is looking for some practical help to grow 60,000 trees in our Dundreggan Tree Nursery. With guidance from the Nursery Supervisor and as part of the Trees for Life Nursery Team, this exciting opportunity has arisen for two new posts to help propagate a range of native tree species, ready for planting to restore the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands. As well as potting new seedlings into root trainers, the enthusiastic post holder will have the opportunity to get involved with a range of other nursery tasks and learn from a team who have over 25 years combined experience.

The successful applicant will have an excellent eye for detail and good motor skills, helping to ensure a high level of consistency. This role will be based at Dundreggan, with the majority of the work being conducted in our polytunnels, where an appreciation for working outdoors is essential. As well as our nursery staff, the post holder will work alongside teams of dedicated volunteers, so should enjoy working with a range of different people from different backgrounds.
