Apprentice Grade 1: £20,047

You will work as an Apprentice Arborist. You will be required to complete a two year training programme that will cover all aspects of the role and will be delivered through in-house training, as well as day-release or other distance learning methods delivered by Berkshire College of Agriculture. You will complete a Level 2 Intermediate Arborist Apprenticeship which is within the Arboriculture sector and you will gain a Level 2 qualification.

College attendance and successful completion of these studies is an essential requirement of this Apprenticeship.

As an Apprentice Arborist at the Harcourt Arboretum you will have the opportunity to work with one of the finest conifer collections in the UK, set in 130 acres of historic picturesque landscape. Over the two-year apprenticeship you contribute to the on-going maintenance and development of the Harcourt Arboretum, involved with the creation of outstanding arboricultural displays and natural amenity. This includes a variety of roles related to the care and maintenance of trees, shrubs and meadow grassland.

You will be part of a small but highly dedicated and efficient team that works on the Arboretum, and will also work closely with the wider department, including the Education Team. You will have the opportunity to develop your skills in engaging with a wide range of people, for instance by delivering tours to the general public.
