Salary: £19305 per annum

We are looking for a passionate, driven individual to be part of our ranger team.

Rangers have been a part of the National Trust since the beginning, our place in the organisation's future means we need to think long term about how we look after our special places.

Sissinghurst is a highly personal garden planned by two people whose artistry was matched by their plant knowledge and who had an individual point of view. To perpetuate a garden made by two such individuals require gardeners not only with supreme horticultural knowledge and skill but also gardeners with vision, sensitivity and most importantly an instinctive feeling for the spirit of the place.

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 others 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 assisting with guided visitor walks, through 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 forever.
