You'll be responsible for carrying out safety inspections and routine repairs as well as delivering initiatives and events which will have a positive impact on our customer's experience. To ensure our visitors have a safe and pleasurable visit you'll maintain our cycling and walking paths, trees and woodland, water safety and keep our car parks and play areas tidy. You will also carry out conservation land management with our volunteers group and work closely with the Park Management to keep our visitors safe.


What do you need?


You'll need to have experience in the management and maintenance of country parks and/or fisheries and it would be extremely advantageous if you have practical land and/or water based qualifications.


This is a customer facing position; you'll therefore have excellent interpersonal skills and strive to deliver outstanding customer service around Grafham Water.
