The Family Forest Network is a collaboration among 11 charitable, non-profit and co-operative organizations that seek to promote ecologically sensitive forest management on small, privately owned woodlands in Nova Scotia. The partners will conduct a five-year, $10.6 million project that aims to:
KEY COMPETENCIES and RESPONSIBILITIES
The Supervising Forest Professional will serve in one of the most important roles in the project. The position requires significant, direct experience in performing and supervising forest management activities and operations; a deep understanding of the Nova Scotia forest sector, including the major mills and managers, provincial programs, and sectoral challenges; strong inter-personal, organizational, and project management skills; measured, mature decision-making; flexibility in responding to changing circumstances; and a demonstrated commitment to ecologically sensitive forest practices. Nova Scotia registered professional forester or forest technician strongly preferred.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
Nova Scotia residency and travel throughout the province is required.
The network will be filling three key positions at the outset: supervising forest professional, network manager and naturalist. The positions will report to the Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators Association, which is sponsoring the project.
As an employee of NSWOOA, you will join an organization that has long been a leader in promoting environmentally centered, socially responsible, and economically balanced forestry for Nova Scotia. We believe that forest practices should mimic natural processes in the native Acadian/Wabanaki Forest, and we have been demonstrating our beliefs in the woods for more than 30 years. We were outspoken advocates for change at a time when the concepts of ecological forestry were ignored or scorned by most professionals. For more information about the association, visit nswooa.ca.
Please send a cover letter outlining your interest and suitability, as well as a CV demonstrating your work, life and volunteer experiences, to:
Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators Association
