The one year programme combines college-based learning with workplace training and is an ideal way to begin a career in arboriculture. Selected candidates will undergo full training at both Askham Bryan College and on site whilst working for Fountains. Successful completion of the training will result in a Level 2 Work-based Diploma in Trees and Timber qualification and nationally recognised utility and arboriculture competencies.

Applicants should be enthusiastic, hardworking and able to work as part of a team. Due to the nature of the industry, a high awareness of health and safety is also required. Applicants may be asked to attend a practical based interview at Askham Bryan College, York. Please note that you must be aged 18+ and have a full UK driving licence to apply.
