The Hart District area covers part of the Thames Basin Heaths SPA and the Forest of Eversley Heritage area, including various SSSIís, commons and open spaces that encompass the assorted heaths, woodlands and wetland habitats around the District. The Service has three Green Flag Award sites.


This is an exciting opportunity for someone with some experience, looking to further themselves by taking on responsibilities for an established Country Park. Part of the role will be to encourage more visitors and maintain to a high standard, as it is transferred to the Council.

You will require a qualification in a Countryside Management discipline or other relevant subject. We will consider Further Education qualification with relevant work experience. You will also require a full driving licence ideally with BE classification for trailer towing and as the work also involves management of open water, you must be a competent swimmer.
