Based in the New Forest
Temporary, six-month contract
Reference number: 207700
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 are looking for a self-motivated Assistant Seasonal Ranger to join our dedicated New Forest Recreation Ranger team. You’ll help us to make a real difference to our many visitors, providing information and advice to help them get the best out of their visit. You will be promoting our role in caring for and protecting the forests, heathland and wildlife that live here.
A confident communicator, you’ll have previous experience of working in a public-facing role and dealing with a range of visitor enquiries and complaints. You will be comfortable working alone and have an interest and understanding of working in a protected landscape.
This role is an annualised hours contract, which means you will be expected to work more when there is a higher demand for our recreation facilities, including weekends, public and school holidays. There is the possibility of full or part time hours.
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 generous annual leave and a government pension scheme. We also provide a range of training and learning opportunities to help you develop your skills.
