HIRING NOW | Find your Passion. Feel your Purpose.

Would you like to be valued, challenged and supported with a work life balance including genuinely flexible work arrangements, an attractive salary, and 12% super?

Do you want to work for a business that cares about its people - for their health and wellbeing, ensuring they feel valued and respected, and that every day, everyone returns home safe? A business that cares about the Traditional Custodians of the land we now manage, our neighbours, communities and the visitors to our plantation forests.

We sustainably manage 310,000 hectares of forest throughout the state of Queensland from Passchendaele near the NSW border to Kuranda north west of Cairns. We're growing almost 100 million trees in Queensland, did we mention sustainably?

Our Coastal Region is also growing and so are our people. As a result of an internal promotion we are seeking a suitably qualified Forester to deliver quality silviculture programs for our Fraser Coast North District. You will be key in engaging and coordinating contractors getting our trees in the ground. You'll ensure these activities are carried out to the standards that have earned us dual forest certification. If you have a love for the outdoors but also don't mind sitting at a desk, love to problem solve, and thrive being part of a team, this is the role for you.

Reporting to the District Manager, you will be located in our Tuan office, close to both the township of Maryborough and the beautiful Hervey Bay.

Beyond a proactive work ethic driven to achieve high quality results, the skills, qualification, and experience that will help you to thrive in this role include:

  • Bachelor of Forest Science (or other relevant tertiary qualification), or a Diploma level forestry (or related field) qualification with relevant experience.
  • Technical knowledge and skills in information technology systems including Microsoft Office applications, geospatial, financial, and forest management systems, or the ability to quickly acquire these skills and those relevant to HQPlantations systems.
  • Existing fire management qualification, or a willingness to obtain Sector Commander accreditation.
  • Unrestricted 'C' class drivers licence.

The base salary for this position ranges from $89,000 to $97,500 per annum (excluding applicable allowances) dependant on experience. You will also be entitled to 12% superannuation, flexible working arrangements, generous leave provisions, access to an attractive relocation allowance, a supportive health and wellbeing program, and much more.
