Working in some of the nation’s most stunning places and spaces, come rain or shine, your love of the outdoors will inspire others as you strive to ensure that landscapes are beautifully presented and continue to take our visitors’ breath away.
What it's like to work here
Polesden Lacey is one of the most visited National Trust estates in the South East welcoming over 400,000 visitors a year with at least an additional 100,000 just using the wider estate . The property has glorious views of the surrounding Surrey Hills; everything across the property reflects the former owner’s desire to impress their guests with lavish displays throughout the year and plenty of open space for visitors to enjoy. It is an exciting time to be joining the ranger team with projects planned and underway managing our woodland and farmed estate to improve biodiversity and provide access for the many user groups to the countryside. The estate has recently acquired an extra 130 acres of woodland making it an exciting time to be involved in planning the future management. The team also manage chalk grassland, ancient woodland, a SSSI and wood pasture with patches of heathland creating a diverse role.
