Business Development Manager, Forest Enterprise England

£33,139 – £36,060

Brandon, Suffolk


If you’ve managed a visitor attraction, a leisure or hospitality business; you’ll see the potential of Thetford Forest’s High Lodge Forest Centre.  With 470,000 visitors and a £1.5m turnover, the challenge of evolving its business operations will be both personally and professionally rewarding.


There’s already a lot going on. We offer trail and play facilities, stage Forest Live gigs and work with business partners who provide tree top adventures, bike hire and café services.  However, with major housing developments planned nearby, we expect visitor numbers to grow even further.


So, in this new position, you’ll lead the Forest Centre team and develop a long term business strategy, while seeking out and realising new recreation business investment opportunities across the region. This is a great challenge for a proven, inspirational manager, with the acumen and creativity to deliver exceptional visitor experiences.
