Woodlands Manager
$86,200.00 - $122,100.01 annually

BC Timber Sales (BCTS) works collaboratively with regional and district operations to plan, develop, and auction a substantial portion of the province’s annual available timber volume. BCTS operates as a for-profit entity within a government organization. Its goal is to provide credible representative price and cost benchmark data for the Market Pricing System through auctions of timber harvested from British Columbia’s public land. BCTS operations are guided by three overarching principles: forest sector safety, reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and sustainable forest management.

The Woodlands Manager identifies the necessary resources to achieve operational objectives, issues and administers Timber Sale Licenses, and manages and monitors operations until the free growing state is reached. The Woodlands Manager is responsible for implementing forestry and business practices reflective of the private sector to provide benchmark information for provincial timber pricing. This position also ensures resource management practices are performed and evaluated by operational and higher-level land use plans, legislative requirements and forestry certification standards.

The BC Public Service is committed to creating a diverse workplace to represent the population we serve and to better meet the needs of our citizens. Consider joining our team and being part of an innovative, inclusive and rewarding workplace.
