Forestry England is the largest land manager and custodian of the nation’s public forests. We have around 1,000 committed staff looking after more land and more trees than any other organisation. It’s a job that never stops growing.

We welcome over 450,000 visitors each year to Alice Holt, who come to enjoy our play areas, natural play, cycle and foot trails, café, GoApe!, and other recreation events. As Recreation Ranger, you’ll help manage our dedicated craftspeople team to enhance our recreation offering in the forest and make a positive impact to our visitor experience.

With previous supervisory experience in an outdoor role, you’ll be confident planning and undertaking reactive and planned maintenance, routine repairs, and facility inspections to ensure all work is undertaken safely and to a high standard. IT literate, you’ll also be comfortable managing and assisting with contracts and arranging contractors and suppliers work on site.

This is an exciting time to join the South Forest District as we look to secure and grow our economic, social, and natural capital of our forests. In return, we offer an attractive salary and benefits package including a generous government pension scheme and flexible working.
