Assistant Ranger

Gunby Hall


Salary £18,298 per annum pro rata – Permanent contract – 22.5 hours per week

We are looking for an Assistant Ranger to join our team at Gunby Hall.

The Gunby estate is expansive, as is our vision for the future. The Hall, gardens and wider estate each have dedicated teams where one day you are greeted by the House and Collections Officer in the music room and, the next, observing gardeners at their craft along the herbaceous borders in the grounds. It’s all thirsty work, making the quaint tearoom in the courtyard a favourite cosy space for visitors, staff & volunteers to intermingle.

With your endless passion for our work, you’ll help with the protection and care of habitats, wildlife, property and machinery, and your passion will inspire other to love this beautiful place as much as you do. We want you to engage with visitors, making time to talk to them, not rushing away to the next task.

So whether you’re maintaining our green spaces to assisting with guided visitor walks, through to delivering a wide range of engaging visitor experiences, no two days will be the same. You’ll also share and promote the work that we do here, ensuring special places like these are here to be both protected and enjoyed by everyone for ever. This will see you responding to queries and explaining the value of the work being undertaken. After all, your passion and dedication could fire the imagination that makes a visitor become a supporter for the rest of their life.

Who we're looking for

To deliver this role successfully, you'll need to:

  • Demonstrate a willingness to work alongside volunteers and be able to support them to perform at their best
  • Have a commitment to customer service standards and experience of its delivery
  • Demonstrate a passion for nature and the outdoors
  • Have good written and verbal communication skills
  • Have good people skills enabling strong relationships externally and internally, to be built and maintained
  • Practical experience in land, conservation and access management, to level 2 (or equivalent level of vocational experience)
  • Some experience of delivering engagement activities that help build or strengthen visitors’ connections with nature and the outdoors
  • Familiarity with machinery/equipment and practical certificates as required by the property
