We are delighted to be able to welcome Hayden Ross to the team at RSS Countryside Management. Hayden is starting out on his path to a career in the land based sector and has just started his Apprenticeship in Trees and Timber, supported through Opportunities Fife and the Fife Jobs Contract. He has gotten off to a great start and is already showing great potential. It's so important for employers to invest in the future, particularly when there is predicted to be a huge upturn in demand for skilled people in forestry in particular. Looking forward to working with you Hayden! Lantra Scottish Qualification Authority Skills Development Scotland Opportunities Fife
