This is a fixed term contract due to end when the previous employee returns from maternity leave. At this point we cannot confirm exactly how long this contract will last, but it is unlikely to be more than 12 months.

Guided by seasonal work programmes, you will help maintain and deliver large scale moorland conservation work, contributing towards our Land and Nature targets and our woodland creation ambition. You will be responsible for day to day estate management and maintenance, maintaining excellent standards of presentation and access infrastructure.

You will support monitoring to ensure compliance with our stewardship agreements. On such a large estate, you will build and maintain strong professional relationships with colleagues, tenants, partner organisations and contractors to help us achieve our aims by working effectively together. You will contribute to project delivery and will manage a team of volunteers to increase our capacity, working safely and effectively.

With your endless passion for our work, you’ll help with the protection and care of habitats, wildlife, property and machinery. Your passion will inspire others to love this beautiful place as much as you do. With the support of our Senior Visitor Experience Officer you will be able to share your work to a wide range of audiences, ensuring special places like these are both protected and enjoyed by everyone for ever. This will see you responding to enquiries and explaining the value of the work being undertaken.

The Peak District like many other countryside sites is experiencing unprecedented levels of recreational use and new audiences. You will monitor and maintain a safe environment for visitors and support management through our visitor risk plans.

In this role, you may be required to work some weekends, bank holiday and evenings.

You’ll need to;

  • Deliver practical conservation work to protect and enhance the conservation status of the property
  • Demonstrate a passion for nature, heritage and the outdoors
  • Able to engage with visitors to ensure they understand the value of your work
  • Help create a great place to work, sharing common goals
