Forest Creation Partners exists to fight climate change, protect the environment, and create jobs, by radically increasing the rate of tree-planting in the UK.

We are a new business, using cutting-edge technology and innovative financing solutions to take on this challenge. We are already working closely with government and leading businesses, and are backed by large ethical institutional investors.

We are searching for a Business Development Associate to help us build relationships with landowners and do deals that lead to new forest creation on their land. Currently our target areas are mostly in the North of England, but our focus is likely to spread to other parts of the UK over time.

You will need to bring excellent interpersonal skills, business acumen, the ability to work independently, and experience working with the agricultural sector. You will also need to be comfortable working with detailed documents and data. Above all, you must share our passion for protecting the environment and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

In return, we can offer generous profit-sharing arrangements, and the chance to play a growing role in a dynamic start-up making a positive impact on one of the greatest challenges facing humanity.
