Grade 7 (salary within the range 26,853 - 29,332 per annum)

37 hours a week (some weekend/evening working will be required)


Eastleigh Borough Council is an ambitious and progressive council, recognised for our innovation and achievements whilst delivering high-quality services to our customers and the community.


We are seeking to recruit a Country Park Manager to oversee the day-to-day management of Lakeside Country Park. Set between the airport and residential housing, the land use is a mixture of recreation, with paths, a miniature railway and events arena and also conservation with areas under HLS management. As well as the lakes themselves, the park boasts a stunning waterside conference centre which is used for meetings by businesses and community groups as well as areas rented by long-term tenants.


Although based predominantly at Lakeside, this role will take overall day-to-day responsibility at both Lakeside and our other park, Itchen Valley Country Park, for ensuring that high standards of site safety and cleanliness within the recreational facilities are maintained. These include paths, trails, ditches, verges, fencing, BBQs, car parks and play equipment. This may be through working with colleagues or through the management of contractors.


The manager will also support the wider Countryside team to deliver the conservation HLS site plan for Lakeside and Itchen Valley Country Park which may include chainsaw and coppicing work, habitat restoration, hedging and the management of the lakes.
