Calderdale Council are looking to fill the position of Campsite Warden at Jerusalem Farm Local Nature Reserve.
You would be responsible for ensuring the Campsite and Nature Reserve are run effectively, are clean, well maintained, and secure. The site also includes a vast woodland and stream which the post holder will help maintain, so a real passion for countryside management is a must. There may also be opportunities to work on other assets managed by the Countryside and Woodlands Team.
The post holder will be a point of contact for site users and will be required to act on their own initiative when making decisions. Liaising with the contractors who provide routine maintenance to the onsite buildings will also be required. This diverse post is ideal for developing the skills for a future in management of Local Nature Reserves.
