ICF launches video to encourage young people to choose Forestry careers
'Forestry Careers in 60 seconds'
The Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) and the Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) have produced a video - 'Forestry careers in 60 seconds' - aiming to show young people the diversity of roles within the UK Forestry sector.
In just 60 seconds, the video showcases several outstanding career paths: from forest management and timber processing to research and ecosystem preservation.
“The old image of foresters as bearded men with chainsaws is so out of step with modern forestry professionals. We want to show that whatever your gender, whether you’re an outdoor or indoor type, business or science-orientated – there is a role in the forestry sector to suit you", said Shireen Chambers FICFor, ICF Executive Director.
"Some may have preconceived ideas about the kind of people that ‘do forestry’ but the reality is that great jobs and careers are available, and the sector needs a wide range of people to join in, so we can make the most of this green, growing business", Jo O’Hara MICFor, Head of Forestry Commission Scotland, added.
