This line of work is all about helping landowners, farmers and local councils to manage and maintain their areas of land.

This isn’t your typical kind of managerial role. You’re not going to be conducting performance reviews of paddocks, making sure fields are hitting their targets or taking a cluster of trees out for after-work drinks.

It’s more likely that you will be acting as a land management consultant to various clients. You’ll be offering guidance and devising schemes to help farmers get the most out of their land.

Alternatively, you might be working together with the government and organisations, such as the National Trust to help improve areas that are designated for public land use. You’ll be using your expert knowledge of the environment and sustainability issues to help preserve the wildlife in national parks and conservation areas, whilst making them accessible for all kinds of people.
