Location: The Nene Valley, Northamptonshire
This is an exciting opportunity to join a small environmental charity and social enterprise in a leadership role. Based at one of the region’s most popular countryside sites, the job involves organising and coordinating the work of the Ranger Team to help ensure the smooth day-to-day running of Stanwick Lakes.
Stanwick Lakes forms part of the Upper Nene Valley Special Protection Area, and as a 750 acre nature reserve and also a countryside attraction, it is special for both wildlife and people. This job will suit someone who is seeking a well-rounded career in countryside management and conservation, who enjoys taking responsibility, likes dealing with the public and working as part of a practical team which delivers both significant conservation benefits and impressive recreational facilities for the local community.
With around 300,000 visits per year Stanwick Lakes is a popular, busy site all year round, but particularly between Easter and September, when the rangers’ focus is on ensuring that visitors enjoy their time with us. The quieter months are the time for focusing on habitat works with our volunteers to meet the requirements of the management plan.
Rockingham Forest Trust, which manages the site as a social enterprise, is an environmental charity. We work to bring wide-ranging community benefits through creating and conserving special green spaces, and exploring local heritage in ways which educate, involve and inspire.
