We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as an Area Ranger.
Based at Smalldean Farm on the Bradenham Estate, the ranger team consists of two Area Rangers who manage a small team each, along with a dedicated group of volunteers. We’re ecologically minded, and people focussed. We’re committed to delivering on the National Trust “Land, Outdoors & Nature” strategy and work, ensuring the Central Chiltern’s network of special habitats, wildlife, and access are improved, enlarged and linked up, providing vital connected corridors across the landscape.
As one of the Area Rangers you’ll manage a small team of Rangers working throughout the portfolio. Following the lead from the Property’s Business Plan you’ll build and manage an effective and flexible work programme for you and your team. You’ll support your fellow rangers in undertaking engagement and conservation work, contributing towards HLS (Higher Level Stewardship) targets.
You’ll play a key role in maintaining excellent standards of presentation and property maintenance, successfully achieving Conservation Management Review targets. You’ll build and maintain strong professional relationships with colleagues, contractors, tenants, and neighbouring land managers.
You’ll also be responsible for helping with excellent communication of our conservation work to a wide range of audiences, both new and existing, through events, guided walks, and engagement with local communities. You’ll appreciate the need for our countryside sites to bring in income, so your business ideas will play an important part in the team’s success.
To be fantastic in this role, we’d love you to have the following skills and experience:
