Are you an experienced Arboricultural Consultant looking for a new challenge in a fast-growing consultancy? It goes without saying that you will enjoy and have a keen interest working with trees and outside, you are hardworking, enthusiastic, and well organised. If this sounds like you, we would like to hear from you.
Due to phenomenal business growth, we are looking for an Arboriculturist Consultant to join our team based in Guildford.

This is a great opportunity to gain the experience, skills and knowledge needed to impress high-end clients.
Our client base ranges from individual homeowners through to large national infrastructure projects. The variety keeps the work interesting.

You’ll enjoy all the benefits we have to offer, including EOT approved bonuses (after 1 year of service), fantastic on-the-job training, 25 days annual leave, paid professional memberships, pension, flexible working, career progression, free parking (location dependent) and regular social events.
